So what is my food philosophy?
You might have guessed it. Savor the Rainbow! Color is a very good thing, my friends! I try to eat as much vibrant food as I possibly can that just screams out “FRESH!” And no, orange food coloring from cheetos and m&ms don’t count. I try to stay away from processed foods as much as possible. Now this doesn’t mean that I won’t indulge in a bowl (or two) of Cheez-Its or Chex Mix when they call out to me.
While I do not consider any food “bad”, I do take eating in moderation and taking each bite mindfully very seriously. I don’t limit any food groups. Instead I focus on consuming a well-balanced diet.
I am, however, particular about the food source. I purchase my meat from a reputable local farm so that I can cherish each bite knowing that the animals were treated humanely and that they are hormone and antibiotic free.
I am a huge supporter of local farmer’s markets. And I consider myself very fortunate that I live just about 10 minutes away from one that opens every Saturday! Love Love Love! I guess I can be considered a Locavore =)
In this blog you will find recipes that my family really loves to eat. Hopefully they will inspire you to savor the rainbow! Happy eating! And let’s toast to health!
