This blog is about My Food Religion, making healthy meals that taste delicious! Healthy does NOT have to equal bland. I love to cook nutritious, wholesome food that is preservative, additive and artificial everything free. I prefer to use ingredients that are as close to their natural state as possible and have been through minimal processing.
I am not vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, fat-free, carb-free or any other food “denomination” in its entirety. I take what I like from different food approaches and recipes and adapt it to suit what make me (and my husband- his body is a ‘temple’ ;)) feel good.
The thing with food and nutrition is, everyone’s body responds differently to different macro and micro-nutrients… You can’t “broad brush” nutrition which is why so many “diets” fail, they are not one size fits all. Our digestive and physiological make-up are a direct result of a life-time of conditioning: How many meals/day are you used to consuming, how large or small are your portions, have you consumed predominately carbs, proteins or fats throughout your ‘eating life’? ?
I love healthy food and I love to experiment with food. I hope you enjoy following me on this food journey, I am sure there will some “MasterChef” moments, as well as some “DisasterChef” ones (no comment required Dad!), so come along for the ride!0
Love it shan! well done babe – I will be hinting at Darren Gaffney to make me some of those rhubarb slices! xx
