Hope you all are enjoying your weekend and not blowing your diet too badly.
My food philosophy is eat more whole foods, less processed. Even “light” foods can be processed down. It is important to know the ingredients of the foods you eat on a normal basis.
When you go to the store, try to shop the perimeter of the store. This is where the meats, dairy, and fruits/veggies are kept, which should be the main portion of your diet.
Also note: The darker the food, the more nutrients it has in it (generally speaking). This means pick a red onion over the yellow one.
I am a huge Food Network (and Top Chef) fan, so here’s some recipes you should check out that are healthy whole foods and really yummy!
Bobby Flay’s recipes:
If you don’t like arugula (it is a little bitter), go with a lettuce of your choice.
This one is also worth the effort.
Sunny Anderson’s recipe:
Peaches would work great too.
Haven’t tried all of these, but I’m working on it!
A dear friend once told me “If you can read a recipe, then you can cook!”
