Eating healthy fat does NOT make you fat. On the contrary, fat helps regulate metabolism of sugar, the likely culprit making you pack on pounds.
I love food sources that bring more than fat to the tables such protein, vitamins and minerals.
Michael Pollan's approach to nutrition is simple: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. Why does nutrition have to be complicated?Read More
I'll let you in on my little secret that frees up time, saves indecision at dinner time, and makes cooking from scratch a heck of a lot more realistic.
Don’t feel overwhelmed! Food and eating isn’t something to be intimidated by, but enjoyed in all its capacity.
