Welcome to my crazy world of real food cooking ...

Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly Plants. -- Michael Pollan

I wish I could take credit for that because I think it sums up how we should eat. Simply -- eat stuff that really is food, instead of stuff that is food like substance. The supermarket is almost entirely food-like-substances, and, my friends, you should probably never ever eat them.

Fortunately, there is a world of deliciousness out there, and it can all be had in a way that not only doesn't harm your health, but in a way that benefits you hugely.

I think it's important to eat stuff that satisfies you, that keeps your blood sugar stable, and that gives you stuff your body really needs to run optimally.

But baby, it's gotta taste good.

I really like getting experimental in the kitchen. I love cooking, I love layering flavours, and I love coming up with really super yummy food. I have very strong opinions about what constitutes food, and there are a lot of things I won't touch in the kitchen. Bottom line? Pretty much everything I make is ridiculously good for you even if it tastes decadent. Although there are occasional big fat cheats ... but even those stick to real food, my friends.

For food that is usual gluten free, usually free of cane sugar, usually super low on the glycemic index, full of protein, fiber, flavour, and excellent energy, join me and Alice down the rabbit hole.

Every recipe on this blog is my own original effort and idea, so please pass 'em on, giving credit where credit is due.

Many thanks, and come back often. I'm really glad you are here!

Broccoli -- our favourite way

We like broccoli plain and simple. Sauteed in a little coconut oil on low heat, sprinkled with a little sea salt. We received a very sweet bunch in our organic bin, and it was so good like that.



You know when the stalks are so sweet and tender they almost taste like sweet peas from the shell in summer?

Anyway, this is our favourite way of preparing many vegetables. Not quite plain, but simple and very yummy. As long as the produce is nice ... If you are a butter lover, by all means throw a little butter on your greens. And the sprinkle of salt really brings out the yummy. If you love olive oil, drizzle your steamed broccoli with your extra virgin cold pressed liquid gold. Fat is good for you, and helps you absorb vitamins that are only soluble in fat.
