When it comes to what our food philosophy is, it’s pretty simple and broken down into 4 ideals in which we try to live by.
Eat more real food. That means exactly what it states, buy or grow food that you find in nature. Things like fresh vegetables, fruit, meat, seafood, eggs, nuts and healthy oils. Avoid processed foods, especially the ones with a long list of ingredients you can’t pronounce. Go support your local farmers market, fresh is always best.
Keep it simple. When cooking we have learned that some of the best flavor combinations only use a few ingredients. It’s because it allows those flavors to be the star of the dish. To eat good doesn’t require a complicated recipe.
Find balance. Don’t feel like you can’t enjoy a special occasion or moment with a loved one. Sometimes eating a piece of cake your mom has spent hours preparing is better than turning down the calories. We also love going to lunch with friends and family, yet wouldn’t trade our social life for staying home, just make the best decisions you can while out.
Build on what you know. Often when someone comes to us wanting to change their whole diet, start fermenting, using natural yeast, making kefir, and the list goes on. We always give the advise to start out simple and build upon what you’ve learned. We didn’t know all the things we’ve learned in a day, a week or even a few months. Its taken years to find what works and doesn’t work. Be patient with yourself and never stop learning.
