Getting to know your food , and becoming comfortable sourcing, preparing, and consuming it, are key pieces to the puzzle of lifelong wellness. Of course, this can be tricky when we’re stuck in food-fear and can’t find our way around our own kitchens.
The recipes and information I share here are intended to take away some of the kitchen intimidation factor. Our site features whole food, vegan, gluten-free, family-friendly recipes [lots of ideas for quick weeknight meals!], which are especially created for the novice cook (and the new to plant-based eating eater). They’re also intended to be shared with children, in the spirit of cultivating adventurous, whole-food loving kids from the very beginning. If you’re on your own road to loving real food, too, you’re in the right place. I hope that getting in touch with how you eat will help you to understand your relationship with food and break down the blocks that might be in the way of feeling the best you’ve ever felt.
When we create a habit of focusing on simple ingredients – primarily nutrient-dense plants (that is, plant foods that pack a big healthful punch for relatively few calories) – prepared at home, our potential to live vibrantly and energetically increases tenfold. The quality of the food we eat each day matters. All food isn’t created equal.
The kitchen is a great place to start growing healthy habits. Visit your farmers’ market, roll up those sleeves, and get cooking.
Then be prepared to feel fabulous.
