🌿”Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.” Helen Keller🌿
Let’s be honest, we all have cravings for something sweet every now and then (right, it’s not just me is it ). I think for me, the thing I love the most about recipes, is being able to take a once classic dish and twist it into something a bit cleaner and more modern.
Everyone has their own food philosophy and that’s okay. I am in no way a doctor and everything I state here is my own opinion. Our bodies are different, so what works for me, may not work for you, but I do have a lot of people who ask about my overall diet so here it goes!
….. The truth is, I don’t diet, I don’t count calories, and I don’t weigh myself. Most of my friends are doctors, nutritionist, and health food bloggers, and I feel like we all follow similar guidelines. If you want energy and you want to look and feel good, you have to have a goals that are obtainable. For me, that’s eating everything in moderation. I use to restrict carbs and cheese, but now I make smart choices. I eat mostly plant-based and throw in healthy fats and whole grains. Yes, I do eat fish and yes, at times I eat meat (but very limited). Id say I also do a lot gluten-free and vegan recipes as well, but mostly I stick to my motto of eating whole Foods with ingredients I can understand.”
So when it comes to baking, this gets tricky. I find a lot of products on the market are crammed with crap ingredients (excuse my french). Modern day marketing convinces consumers to believe that what they are eating is healthy, when it’s not! So on my blog, you’ll find a lot of dessert recipes because I find they are the hardest to find with pure ingredients. Again, I don’t go for low fat, low cal, low carb recipes, but I do try my hardest to produce recipes that contain the purest of ingredients.
