Guilt-Free Fall Foods
I count myself a member of the majority who LOVE food. Food is like a drug for many, myself included. We eat to experience new tastes and we eat to comfort, with well acquainted dishes. We eat to live (feeding our bodies) and we live to eat (feeding our souls). We eat to celebrate and we eat to commiserate. It is no wonder we become slaves to our beloved food, whether the selections are healthy or decadent!
But WHAT IF, those foods we love the most (usually the decadent ones) could be made with good-for-you ingredients, effectively rendering them comforting, celebratory and healthy?!
That’s what The Holistic Kitchen is all about.
There’s something about fall foods that are especially comforting. The weather is turning and we look to heartier fare for comfort, warmth and merriment. We also look to time tested recipes that have been handed down and embedded in our memories of holiday gatherings, in some cases because of their decadence! Again, I ask: WHAT IF those same delights could be made with healthier options, without sacrificing the delight?
It can be done – The Holistic Kitchen and I, Chef Nancy, exist to prove it! Here’s a recipe for Apple Crisp, that replaces every harmful ingredient and renders a delicious, anti-inflammatory version of this classic dessert (presuming you don’t ad ice cream!) If it ain’t Apple Crisp to you without the ice cream, make your own low glycemic coconut milk ice cream or buy the green label So Delicious Vanilla, coconut ice cream in your natural market. OR stayed tuned for my Walnut Vanilla Bean Chantilly in my next book!
