There is no magic pill.
There is no spell that fixes aches, pains, and illness.
Healthy living can’t be bought as a potion in a bottle.
So how do we set out to live the healthiest life we can, while still enjoying the vices that exist around us? My goal with this blog is just that: healthy eating without sacrificing the glorious taste and enjoyment of food. Food is one of the most powerful things we can use to help us lead the best lives we can, and it can also taste real f***ing good – so let’s enjoy that.
When exploring the site, there are a few things to note. Two types of recipes exist: Good for the Body and Good for the Soul.
Good for the Body
Recipes that are created to taste delicious and provide you with a powerful concoction of nutrients to support your health.
Good for the Soul
While still having a strong focus on home cooking, these recipes will be on the gluttonous side. Think cocktails and cookies.
Most of the recipes on this site will be Good for the Body, just as we should all aim to have most of the foods in our diet be those that fuel our body best. That being said, I truly believe that to develop a healthy relationship with food, we need to occasionally indulge ourselves without guilt. Also, foods that tend to fall under this category are usually associated with good times and who wants to miss out on that?
So start brewing up those recipes.
