Too often we are focused on calories, fat, carbs and protein and we aren’t eating food for its vitamin, mineral and phytochemical content. Eating whole foods, including healthy fats and protein, help to keep us feeling satiated, balance our energy and mood and keep carb cravings down, all of which aid in maintaining or achieving a healthy weight. So, not only does a diet full of whole foods alleviate food guilt, it also eliminates the need to count calories.
Great, super rich,vven taking short cuts with recipe! We loved this cake. I took a couple of shortcuts and it still came out great. First, I made this in a cheesecake springform pan without the water bath around it ( these pans would leak) so it would be easier to get out of the pan without inverting. Baked fine without the water bath around it and came out of pan. Secondly, I did not do the sugar, flour mixture in a pan as I thought I might burn it. I melted the chocolate in a double boiler and added the sugar and milk right to it in the double boiler. Thirdly, I did not make the topping but thought I might serve it with thaws frozen raspberries. S all in all, I made the recipe easier and it was rich and delicious. Pros: Delicious Cons: None
I’ve worked, and I’m working really hard, not to be weird about food. Like many women, especially, it’s been something I’ve been conscious of having to keep an eye on since school, where eating disorders were a core lesson of Key Stage 3, then through adulthood, where an essential facet of feminine bonding is sharing a hatred of our own bodies, and where, in the past decade, the idea of dieting to lose weight has morphed into a far more complicated and expensive concept of wellness, classing foods as either good or bad, right or wrong.

It's nearly the end of November, the traditional kick-off to holiday temptations. And it's a long season — Thanksgiving, family get togethers, office parties, New Year's Eve celebrations, right through to Superbowl Sunday. Many people find healthy eating difficult this time of year. Maybe you've settled into an exercise routine and eaten wisely for months and are worried about undoing all the good you've done. Or maybe you want to simply avoid adding pounds.

Because healthy foods are delicious and are supposed to be!!!! Have you ever went through a long period of no sugar and realized how tasty fruits and veggies really are? The problem is, our taste buds are desensitized to naturally delicious, natural foods thanks to processed foods. And I once heard on Dr Oz, we are addicted to our food people! So no, I do not buy your argument to justify to continue to eat processed, high fat, and high sugar foods, that we are addicted to. I guarantee you, if you ate all natural foods that our bodies were designed to consume, we would naturally return to a normal and healthy weight, and we would no longer overeat. Read the latest research on epigenetics…..our cells rely on certain vitamins and minerals, and many genes of certain diseases are turned on later in life bc of our bad habits.
When people think about limiting their portions, proteins and fats often come to mind. Contrary to popular thinking, these food groups don’t typically require as much attention as carbohydrates because they tend to have self-limiting properties. It’s difficult to binge on plain avocado, chicken, or olive oil, for example. Fill no more than one-quarter of your healthy plate with lean proteins (preferably organic, pasture raised) and quality fats like coconut oil, avocado, and nuts, and you’ll feel satisfied. But be sure you’re eating healthy fats. French fries and greasy prepared foods have no place in your regular eating plan.
It’s a while since I ate a burger, but there they were, nonchalant and fast on Oxford Street, so I slid into a booth and took a bite. And oh God it was fantastic. Rich and salty, a nostalgic ooze, the vivid memory of being eight years old and delighted, and yet, as I swooned into this moment of pleasure, I was conscious of having to trample a familiar guilt. As well as the guilt about eating meat, there was a whole lasagne of additional guilts, layered one on top of the other and softened with a rich white sauce.
Haven’t heard of a frittaffle before? Time for your life to change. This frittata-waffle is made of potatoes, bacon, eggs and cheese and then cooked in a waffle maker (mind blown). Super easy and super delicious! This savory treat will get your taste buds dancing and keep your hunger off longer, with the high protein and low sugar content. Now that you’ve heard of it, go try it!
Hey, guys! I don't know about you, but we often find ourselves craving something sweet, especially after dinner. It's a thing. We shared our favorite sweets a couple weeks ago, and now we are going to switch gears and give you some healthier options. A lot of them involve chocolate and they are still pretty guilt-free. We'll take it! First off is this non-dairy chocolate pudding made with avocado (it's amazing).
Targeted Ketogenic Diets (TKD) are geared towards bodybuilders. This variation of the ketogenic diet allows athletes to ingest high-quality carbohydrates within a half hour of a workout. Since the athletes are performing high-intensity workouts, they are able to burn the additional carbs off very quickly in a workout. They literally burn them before it affects their state of ketosis. If the carbs aren’t burned completely, or in a short period of time, the body is taken out of ketosis.
Butter, cheese, full fat milk, yogurt, sour cream, cream, beef, pork and nuts - The common thread here is that many still are confused about fat since it was wrongfully demonized in the 1970s. The fats that are found in these foods are long chain fatty acids (LCFA) and form the core structural fats in the body comprising 75 - 80% of fatty acids in most cells. LCFA, along with monounsaturated fats (MFA) are the body’s preferred fuel source. Well conducted and replicated research has shown that these fats reduce the risk of heart disease by increasing HDL-cholesterol, lowering triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol. These fats also help to increase muscle mass and stabilize energy and mood.

Forget the arbitrary recommendation to drink eight glasses of water a day. Instead, calculate half your ideal body weight in pounds, then drink that number of ounces of water each day. So, a 150-pound person would aim for 75 ounces of water per day. Hydrating yourself this way helps distribute micronutrients to the cells and keeps you feeling full all day long.

Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Run the tip of a tablespoon down the center of each half, scraping out a shallow layer of the seeds. Lay the zucchini side by side, skin side down, on a small nonstick baking sheet and lightly mist each shell with spray. Sprinkle each zucchini half evenly with salt and pepper. Next, sprinkle the garlic evenly among them. Bake for 16 to 19 minutes, until tender. Sprinkle the goat cheese crumbles evenly over the zucchini, followed by the sun-dried tomatoes. Bake for another 4 to 6 minutes, or until the cheese is just barely starting to melt. Sprinkle the tops evenly with the basil, about 1/2 teaspoon each. Serve immediately.

Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When a spritz of water causes the skillet to sizzle, working in batches and respraying between each batch, mist the skillet with spray and pour 1/4 cup of batter per pancake onto the skillet. Cook until there are bubbles on the top and the bottom is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Flip each pancake and cook until lightly golden brown on the bottom, about another 2 minutes. Transfer the finished pancakes to an ovenproof plate, cover with foil, and keep them warm in the oven until they are all cooked. Serve immediately with 1 teaspoon maple syrup per pancake.
Raw desserts often feature a short list of whole, unprocessed ingredients like nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. They get their sweetness from dried fruit, raw agave nectar, and other natural sweeteners. No refined or artificial sweeteners here! They are no-bake! Great for the warmth of spring or summer, and also for energy conservation, you can avoid cranking up the oven to 350 when making a raw dessert. Most raw desserts are gluten-free and vegan!
What else? There is never ‘guilt’ as an ingredient. I promise. Go check the back of your favorite “guilty” food, it won’t be listed. When we label foods as ‘guilt free’ it makes it seem like we should feel guilt about foods that aren’t labeled guilt free. Yikes. What’s really happening is that the labeling of this product is using basic psychology and marketing principles to make you buy their product - but it’s also changing how you feelings and thoughts about food.

Oh well. From September, tourists in LA will be invited to marvel at these greasy artefacts of a more ignorant time, when humans ate what they wanted to eat, regardless of how processed or sugary it was, or if it was classed as “clean”, or whether its calories were “empty” or if it was presented in a cartoon-charactered tin. Before the complexities of food, and comfort, and class, were boiled down to good and bad, and then liberally distributed through supermarkets and Facebook, like a sprinkling of fine table salt.
The recipes include a selection of comfort foods and indulgent treats that have been made healthier by reducing their levels of fat and calories. For example, a typical slice of chocolate cake has 746 calories and 38 grams of fat, whereas Alexander’s recipe for Dark Chocolate Layer Cake with Buttercream Frosting has just 294 calories and 6 grams of fat.
