A, hell no!
I know I should be lady-like about it but really....
You can eat the food you love and be healthy. Really no lie.
I see recipes, buy cookbooks and magazines that are filled with "normal" recipes. I am a foodie. I love food and not just the healthy kind but....all of it!
I choose to be healthy.
So what's the key? Conversion!
Knowledge and conversion. You can take almost any recipe and make it healthy.
Yes there are a few exceptions and I need to erase... those.... from.... my.... mind.
You just need to know how to do it.
Milk, yogurt, sour creme, whipped cream - you can make anything that has these in the recipe and not use dairy. You can drink milkshakes and eat ice cream. No really I do and they are delicious and shhhhhh, good for you!
Any dish with meat in it can be made healthier by using a smaller portion and make mine antibiotic, hormone free and grass fed. Happy animals make healthy food, if you're a meat eater!
Wheat flour can be deliciously replaced with almond flour, rice flour or a who host of alternatives. Plus there are tons of super yummy gluten-free baked goods. Seriously, I have tried them and so has many of my unsuspecting dinner guest.
Sugar can be replaces with either raw organic sugar , honey, agave, stevia and fruit. There are tons of options.
Oh and in case you don't know me.....There are chocolates that are rockin' good for your health....!
So if you are really wanting to change your health in a natural and long termed way.
Convert! It is delicious and sooo easy!
