Hi everyone! I’m back at it, but this time I’m armed with some new minimalist recipes. As a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I am a certified health counselor. Healthy eating and cooking are definitely a passion of mine. My first principle in healthy eating is a CLEAN, mainly WHOLE FOODS diet: Meaning, our foods should come from mostly unprocessed, minimally preserved ingredients, like fruits, vegetables, organic lean proteins, healthy oils and fats, and complex carbohydrates in (carbs their whole form like brown rice or whole wheat flour versus white rice and white flour). As part of a WHOLE FOODS diet, I also believe in using natural sweeteners like maple syrup versus white sugar.
The recipes will be MINIMALIST in terms of the number and types of ingredients, and also in terms of preparation necessary. Lastly, I invite you to share your recipes with me. As long as they meet the criteria, I will be glad to post them. So stay tuned for some minimalist recipes!
PS: The recipes I will be providing are not necessarily creative or original. They are merely recipes I have taken from cookbooks, family members and friend that I feel are nourishing and tasty, and of course well-received! I am also looking forward to suggestions and comments on how to improve, change and tweak the recipes, as we all have something to contribute.
Recap: Recipe Criteria:
1. Whole Foods
2. Minimalist in terms of prep
