Intuitive Eating

Some people may avoid certain foods depending on a fad diet while other people follow a more intuitive approach by going with the flow and listening to what their body needs. Intuitive Eating combines emotions, instinct and rational thought when we consider our meals. This means that we recognize the psychological drives and biological roles of food and find a balance. One person may eat salads and a piece of chocolate everyday for dinner, while another person may eat a burger several times a week- both are OK, as long as there is a balance and your overall health is honored. We all have our unique diets and meal patterns, and what works for you may not work for someone else. I support viewi

Zucchini Pasta

Here is a quick low carb meal for you to enjoy. Zucchini pasta is easy to prepare and it’s low carb, for those who follow such diet, and a great way to get in veggies.

Ok y'all, I was skeptical about making a vegan mac and cheese, but surprisingly, it came out pretty good! Cashews are used as the base and you add nutritional yeast and seasonings that you would typically use to make mac and cheese to give it that classic flavor.

Ingredients: 3 cups of dry elbow pasta (cook per package instructions). 1 cup cashews (soaked in hot water for at least 20 minutes) 1/4 cup nutritional yeast 2 cloves garlic 1/2 tablespoon onion powder 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning (or thyme or oregano) 1/2 teaspoo
