Health knowledge made personal
Hello Readers! My name is Reshma and Iâ??m a whole-foods culinary enthusiast and avid cook. My style of â??EatFree Cookingâ?? evolved out of the challenge of creating exciting meals for myself that were both nutritionally sound and that would finally put an end to the eternal â??diet trainâ?? that many of us (including myself at one point) seem to be perpetually riding. This â??diet trainâ?? seemed to me to be fraught with too much emotional negotiation around eating: calorie counting, â??cheatâ?? days, strict regimented diets, "guilt-free" treats, and the like. After years of developing recipes that incorporate whole-foods ingredients to create dishes that utilize a balanced and impactful array of tastes and textures, I reached a place in which I was able to eat whole foods based dishes without feeling deprived or unsatisfied and in which keeping myself from eating processed junk foods was no longer a matter of strict self-discipline and a warding off unnecessary feelings of guilt, but rather a matter of a lack of desire altogether. What else can be more freeing than a life devoid of fighting guilt and exerting strict discipline on oneself when it comes to food? Yes, you too can look at your once favorite red velvet cake and walk way simply because you donâ??t want to eat it rather because youâ??ve just barraged and berated yourself with all the reasons you shouldnâ??t. My original recipes for savory dishes, which rely on an abundance of fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts and whole grains, and those for desserts, which make no use of any refined sweeteners or flours, will teach you how to transform whole foods into gastronomical extravaganzas so you can retrain your taste buds to detect â??real foodâ??! So letâ??s start taking out the emotional negotiation from eating one recipe at a time so you canâ?¦EatFree!
