A lot of people have been asking me to share my healthy recipes that make healthy eating fun, easy, and most importantly, delicious. Healthy doesn't need to be boring or unsatisfying - the gazillion amazing healthy recipe blogs prove that! I'm on a mission to contribute to this wonderful health-conscious community and make healthy fun again.
All of these recipes are my own creation or modifications of popular favorites I've learned over the years. All recipes are gluten free and dairy free. Many recipes will also fit the needs of vegetarians, vegans, paleo, Whole 30, and certain allergen-free diets such as egg free and nut free. There is truly something for everyone here, and most, if not all, recipes can be modified just slightly to fit your needs.
I love cooking, and I love creating recipes. Cooking has become almost like a meditation for me, I feel very at peace and "in the moment" when I am creating something in the kitchen. It's one of those activities that gets me into the flow state where time just flies by. I know you may not be the same way, so that's why I want to make cooking fun and easy for you!
I believe in wandering freely in cooking. While exact measurements are very helpful, especially for those new to cooking, it's my mission to help you take off those training wheels and create freely for yourself. I want to empower you to learn to experiment and explore in your cooking. That's what makes it so fun! Don't worry about doing things perfectly - just try something, taste it, and modify if needed. The worst that happens? You learn something for next time.
Don't be afraid to step outside of the comfort zone of the recommended measurements.* Start slow, add some extra spices, throw in some different veggies - make this recipe your own. If you don't have one particular ingredient, sub something that you do have. Cooking shouldn't feel stressful, so make it easy for yourself.
*Disclaimer: Baked goods such as breads, cakes, cookies, etc. do need to have more precise measurements because of the chemical reactions going on. #science.
These recipes are delicious starting points. Try them out and from there - wander free!
