My Food Philosophy

I could tell you about the time my husband decided to eat nothing but beans & rice for a month. “That’s all people eat in third world countries,” he casually explained.

Or I could tell you about the three months I didn’t eat wheat, corn, soy, dairy, coffee, chocolate, or meat. All at the same time.

I have a love hate relationship with making meals. I love eating healthy yummy food, but I don’t love spending alot of time on it.

All my life I’ve struggled with hyperinsulinemia (similar to hypoglycemia) so I can’t eat alot of junk food or sugar. I also have had food allergies. So my food journey is constantly evolving.

I’m also vegetarian.

BUT in the midst of that  I’ve developed a simple easy approach to food.

Meals should be SIMPLE, HEALTHY and under 20 minutes to prepare.

I also sparingly use wheat, corn, soy and other ultra processed foods, which is great if you’re like me looking for other options.

I’m not a chef. I’m a busy mama entrepreneur who prefers many other activities to cooking. But I DO care about healthy food. And I love helping other people come up with quick healthy food solutions! I’m excited to share and hopefully inspire you to eat clean, simple and healthy. 🙂

My hope is that these posts will be an encouraging place where we can all learn from eachother!

So what about you?? How do you approach food and meals? Do you have any tips for eating healthy or not taking hours making dinner??! Do you meal plan? Share in the comments!

  1. Hey Suz,
    I’m a bit late to the party but great post!

    My husband and I always have baked potatoes on our weekly shopping list – easy to pop into the oven at a medium temperature and forget about for 45-60 mins. Simple to customise with chilli, beans, etc. (Easily made veggie or meaty, depending on individual preference.) We always have bags of frozen veggies on hand (peas, corn, broccoli, cauliflower) – super good quality over here in the UK as it’s typically flash frozen straight from the field and EASY to cook with a bit of boiling water. I’d assume that Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods has something similar.

    As for eating healthy, we rarely eat out and prefer to experiment in the comfort of our own kitchen – safer for food allergies, can make things just to our liking, and a fun weekend activity! Most of our weekday meals are quick and pretty simple, as he’s working during the day and I’m finishing my PhD, but we like to take our time on the weekends! I find that DIY-ing all of our restaurant faves (Fish tacos! Thai Green Curry! Pizza!) not only reduces calories significantly, but also allows us to save lots of money.

    We also don’t drink soda or sugary drinks BUT I recently got a Sodastream and I LOVE drinking sparkling water with some fruit.

    p.s. if you guys come over to the UK some time, let me know! You’re always welcome to stay with us and adventure – we love hikes and camping!
