Healthy Cooking Recipes & More: Homemade, Hip and Oh So Tasty!

Who Said Healthy Foods Had to be Ho-Hum?!

~ Skip to the recipe index ~

We're rolling out our spin on healthy cooking recipes straight from our home stash. Truth be told, we eat a lot so we cook a lot, or maybe we cook so much so we can eat so much. Whatever the reason, healthy cooking has become our source for entertainment, creativity, mindfulness practice and yes, health. Trying new foods and eliminating others keeps us on our toes and challenges our ingenuity while connecting us to what our bodies may need (and not need too!).

So how do we do that and what makes these healthy cooking recipes? For us, taste, health and conscious choices go hand in hand for recipes that positively affect us, others and the environment we all share. Our guide is to use made-from-scratch or real food ingredients that are as natural or organic as we can find, mostly grown in season from independent farms and food producers or bought locally as much as possible. Taking the time to find, cook and eat food in this way helps us slow down, stay grateful and better connected to our food sources, the stories behind them and to better health.

Mavenjoy Note
Do we use organic/local/seasonal/independently-produced ingredients every time, all the time? No (
Remember "do what you can, when you can, how you can"?), but that's our guide and when it's especially important, we try to call attention to it -- recipe by recipe, item by item.
For example, we'll include specifics when it's something you 
really, really want to use the organic version of (e.g. dairy, apples, berries, greens, corn) or that's sustainably-raised (eggs, meat, poultry, fish), and we base that on
EWG Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce, other food evaluation tools and a little intuition.
