Good health is about balance, but more importantly it’s about listening to your body and discovering your own personal food code. Diets shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all; our bodies are much too complicated and nuanced for strict observance of just one philosophy. Whether you hand-select a few of my personal recipes or choose to make them all, together I hope that we can reshape our understanding of healthy living and reestablish respect for real food. It begins with the first bite.
