Recently I asked for feedback on Instagram about what you ladies and gentelmen will love to see more on my website in the new year, and some of you asked for more Chinese inspired dishes. I love Asian inspired food, but we all know it is close to impossible to eat Plant Paradox compliant in an asian restaurant. So I made it a mission to create more lectin-free asian inspiried recipes.
Do you want to adopt a healthy(-er) lifestyle, eat better, feel better but you are confused and overwhelmed by all the information out there, some of it even contradictory? Well, that was me 1.5 years ago, before I started the Plant Paradox program, in August-2017, so I totally get it. I was in my late 30s, in fact in 2019 I’ll be 40, and although I was relatively healthy all my life (or so I thought) the past few years I started to have all sorts of problems I was puzzled about: gaining weight and looking puffy despite eating ‘well’ and exercising, doing yoga, being active in general. So what was I doing wrong?
I just spent a long weekend in New York City, and after eating several days in a row at one of my favorite healthy restaurants in the city, The Little Beet Table, I decided to try and recreate one of my favorite meals I had there: Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potato Wedges.
It smells like Christmas in my house my friends. This morning I felt like a treat and had some Honeycrisp apples I was planning to use, so decided to re-make an old recipe of Dutch pancake and use the apple as a topping. But then it’s fall, and I have Pumpkin Pie Spice on hand, and had lemons and an orange too, so I decided to celebrate all the season’s flavors.
When I started this article I had no idea was going to be that long. I thought I can stick to 10 steps, but it turns out, even with the 12 steps I didn’t manage to cover everything. I obviously believe in the power of food as medicine. I truly believe that we are what we eat. But, unless food is also our passion – we are chefs, foodies, food photographers, food producers etc – we should not build our life around food. I call this food freedom – even if I am a foodie, a food blogger and photographer and food is a big part of my life – I still consider food just a tool to keep me healthy so I’ll be able to live my best life and reach my potential.
