The foods on this blog will be packed with antioxidants and healthy fats. They will be mostly gluten free and low in sugar. The majority will be either vegetarian or fish recipes and some with meat.
I try to incorporate as many “superfoods” as possible. These are nutritional powerhouse foods that are packed with antioxidants or that offer great health benefits. This includes dark green veggies, orange and red peppers, sweet potatoes, carrots, berries, wild salmon, eggs, nuts, seeds, greek yogurt and avocados to name a few.
I became a vegetarian a few years ago after not really liking the taste of meat. Therefore, I have been cooking mostly vegetarian recipes and recipes with seafood. Recently, I started to incorporate a little bit of meat into our diet after discovering my intolerance to wheat and looking for more meal ideas.
I also limit sugar as much as possible. It is toxic to our bodies and addictive. Fruit is a great way to get that sweet tooth satisfied without hurting our bodies.
The last thing I aim for at each meal is balance. I like to have enough protein, fiber and fat to balance out carbohydrates. It keeps us satisfied for a longer period of time and doesn’t cause blood sugar highs and lows.
