My Food Philosophy
01. Your Food Choices Matter
I believe that food affects every aspect of our lives. The food we eat will affect our emotions, our energy levels, our immune system, and our digestion. The right foods can change your mood and make you feel happier and kinder. The wrong foods can cause bloating, weight gain, indigestion, anxiety and bad moods.
Food is the foundation for everything we do. And when we don’t take care of ourselves, how can we do the same for our loved ones?
03. Eat More Whole Foods
Whole food is the food that has been around forever. Imagine what your great great grandmother was eating and making. She was probably growing her own vegetables in her garden, canning and fermenting foods to preserve them. She didn’t have access to large amounts of sugar like we do, and if she did, it was rare and a special occasion. Whole food is the solution to the processed food problem we’re facing.
02. Keep It Simple
Before I became a health coach, I was intimidated by healthy food and recipes. That’s why it’s my goal to make this process easy for you – because I get it! Taking the stress off of figuring out what to cook for dinner that’s healthy, how to cook it, and what is going to provide nourishment and not just empty calories; these things are worth their weight in gold. And I want this for you. I’ll show you how to do it in a simple way that’s realistic for your busy life
04. Life is About Balance
I love baking sweet treats for my family, so I’ve found ways to make these recipes healthier. By using better quality flours (like oat flour, buckwheat flour and chickpea flour) and natural sweeteners (like maple syrup and coconut sugar). I also love to sneak fruits and veggies in whenever I can. But at the end of the day, life is about balance and we should enjoy our desserts too!
