As the festive season is fast approaching, I wanted to post my super easy party snacks that are a more healthy alternative to chips and various other types of junky food that is normally served.
One of the biggest arguments against the Paleo diet that I hear most often is the claim that “if you remove a food group like grains out of your diet, you’ll be missing out on nutrients.”
Funnily enough they never seem to elaborate much more than that, so of course it piqued my curiosity. Is it really true or are they just joshing with us?
Let’s take a little diversion from sweet treat recipes this week because yes, while I find them fun to make and let’s face it – eat as well – the other 95% of the time I’m eating protein, veges and healthy oils to keep everything ticking along in vibrant, healthy bliss without the sweet factor.
One of my favourite and easiest things to make for dinner is Lemony Salmon. I’ve yet to find any other flavour with salmon that I like as much – maybe you can let me know how you cook it, so I can expand my repertoire!
I have been reading a few books lately mostly specifically about sugar, grains and weight loss and the interesting thing is that they exactly mirror my beliefs on this subject. My beliefs of course stem from my own experience but also of witnessing the plight of others who keep trying to do the ‘diet and exercise’ advice and fail spectacularly for years, some never succeeding and spending most of their lives miserable. (After dishing out hundreds of dollars on programs that can never work.)
So let’s take a look at what is wrong here…
When news of this ‘Australian first’ wellness offer popped in my inbox, I was a little unsure of what it was about and skeptical as to whether I, or you guys, would be interested.
But then I saw who was involved and my eyes nearly popped out of my head!
This recipe is a particular favourite of mine, as I created it years ago when I was just starting out on my health and weight loss crusade. I was just starting to cook a few things again after hating cooking for so long. For me cooking meant putting on weight, so it was a hate/hate relationship for many years.
