Imagine being able to eat food that you really love every day and that these meals are healthy for you and easy to prepare.
Do you want to improve your nutrition or lose weight but think that means eating bland, boring food and giving up everything that you love?
I have been a food lover for as long as I can remember. Growing up in NYC, I had the good fortune of being exposed to all kinds of great food in people's homes and restaurants from an early age. The culinary diversity of New York has been a strong influence on the way that I cook and eat.
Then, 13 years ago I had a health crisis, and my doctor recommended a specialized diet as a starting place for my getting well. After 2-3 days on the diet, I started to feel better and realized the impact of our food on how we feel. As a result, one of my life goals is to expose as many people as possible to the pleasure of really good, nourishing food.
Here's my philosophy about cooking and eating:
Food should taste delicious and nourish us.
It is possible for it to be fast and easy.
Healthy food does not have to mean deprivation; it should taste great and be satisfying.
Ingredients should be as close to the way nature created them as possible rather than overly-refined and then enriched and free from added chemicals.
Keeping your house stocked with certain staples, condiments, spices and herbs and setting up your kitchen so you can work efficiently will make it much easier to cook better and quickly.
If you eat this way regularly, maintaining a healthy weight follows naturally.
If you've eaten something that you later regret, don't beat yourself up. Your next meal is an opportunity to choose differently.
I know from experience that everyone can be a pretty good cook if they know how to do these things and, if they want to, they can also eat in a way that they feel good about for the rest of their life.
These are all reflected in The Conscious Plate Blueprint and my Holistic Health Coaching Programs.
