Healthy Living Recipes

healthy living recipes

i have a great time adding recipes to this cookbook.

okay, i know it is only a website, but i am old fashioned and still think of this as my own personal cookbook.

In fact, one of the reasons I have it online is that I can access any of my favorites while I am in the grocery store and need the ingredient list.

My Own Idea of Healthy Living Recipes

How does one judge what is a "healthy" recipe?  Some people would say anything with sugar can't be healthy.  Others avoid meat altogether.  I can only tell you that the recipes I have posted here follow my own guidelines for healthy. I feel the first thing people can do to start a healthier diet is cook more meals at home using the freshest ingredients. This one step alone will eliminate a ton of preservatives and salt.

In addition, I don't post anything that contains alcohol. You won't find coffee's on this site either (unless of course it is my coffee sugar scrub). 

Since everyone has different diet restrictions as well, it hard to cover every variety of eating style.  So I will just stick to what I know and what I would eat.  We all know that eating healthy is vital to keeping our bodies fit. I know nutritionists who say that keeping fit is 70 percent what we put in our mouth and 30 percent how much we move.

It is also true that moderation in all things can go a long way in a healthy diet.  Some of these recipes contain a great deal of carbohydrates, which I love, but eating carbs as a side dish or not as often, is one way we can maintain a healthy weight.  But hey, bread is still the staff of life (at least it is for me).
