Friends and family often ask, “What do you really eat?” I guess they think that I’m fabricating when I say, “I eat real food, mostly plants, some chicken and lots of fish.” I don’t eat bread, pasta, processed foods or much sugar. (Yes, you can live without simple carbohydrates.) Those of you who know me, know that I’m not perfect. 🙂 I do love a glass or two of wine.
I save my carbohydrate calories for an amazing piece of dessert to share or a square of dark chocolate. If I eat bread it better be spectacular sour dough right out of the oven or to me it isn’t worth eating.
Every day is a reason to celebrate with fresh healthy food, not an excuse to feast on the average American diet of processed foods and sugar.
If you want to feel better then start with eating right.
It works, I promise.
Let’s play a game of What’s for Dinner?
This is actually how I create meals for my family. I buy the freshest, seasonal ingredients so my refrigerator is stocked with vegetables, fruits, lean meats and fish. The secret of course is to actual eat the produce that you buy. 😉
Here’s what’s in the house
Red and orange peppers
Chicken breast or tofu
Any herbs or spices you like
This is how I play the dinner game.
Pick a cuisine
Italian, Mexican, Indian, American, Fusion
Now add your spices
Italian – basil, oregano, garlic
Indian – ginger, turmeric, curry blends
Mexican – jalapeños, chili powder, cumin
Fusion- Any herb or spice will do. It’s your palette, mix any flavors that appeal to you.
Bake it, sauté it, braise it, or grill it
What will you make for dinner?
Stay tuned and I’ll show you what I made for dinner in my next post.
