Healthy Recipes

Eating a healthy diet is an important part of living a FIT lifestyle.  Your definition of healthy may be different than someone else’s ~ organic, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, vegan, paleo, low carb, food pyramid, low sugar, yeesh! ~ and that’s ok!

I personally believe in all things in moderation.  The 80/20 rule as we call it around here… eat clean 80% of the time and allow yourself some cheats… you have to enjoy life!  I grew up with a mother that made me eat my vegetables, but I always looked forward to dessert.  My maternal grandmother’s mottos were ‘never trust a skinny cook‘ and ‘life’s uncertain, eat dessert first‘ and we could always count on her to spoil us with treats.  So although I love splurging on chocolate, carbs and red wine, I do know that eating healthy is important for staying fit, living longer and having more energy.  To contradict her other mottos, my grandmother (& mom) also always said ‘a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips‘ and ‘nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.’  Talk about having a confusing childhood! 😉
