I’m not a food perfectionist. In fact, I’ve yet to meet a tortilla chip I was able to turn down. Or a glass of rosé.
But I am a big believer that the more real food (like actual whole foods, not processed food products) you eat, the healthier you will be.
If you’re a skeptic that whole foods matter, I get it. I was, too. Then I tried eating real foods to lose weight, and found that the digestive issues I’d had for years were gone.
I was blown away and nutrition quickly became a hobby. Staring in 2014, when I attended the Nutritional Therapy Association for my certification, it become my career. I like to break down the science and write about why whole foods are important. And provide ideas for how you can (sanely) introduce more of them into your family’s diet.
Looking for real food recipes that your family will enjoy? I’ve got plenty! And bonus – my recipes are always easy. I have a toddler who allows me to cook for approximately 17 minutes per day, so there’s nothing fancy here. Just nutritious, whole foods that taste good.
If you’re concerned about budget, time, or effort when it comes to real food, check out my kitchen tips. I’m the queen of food prep, twenty minute meals, and the most efficient grocery shopping possible. I love to share practical ways to implement better nutrition in your kitchen.
