Recently, I published a cookbook called Fit Food for Foodies with very tasty recipes that are gluten free, dairy free, and sugar free. The recipes are quick and so wonderful that you will never know that you are eating “healthy food”. I have found that Bob’s Red Mill gluten free products are widely available and are excellent (that is saying a lot because I am picky). I have several Bob’s Red Mill products in my pantry including a variety of the gluten free flours, baking mix, oats, and brown rice farina. By the way, the brown rice farina makes an excellent polenta (sorry the recipe will be in the next book but maybe I will post it on my website healthygoodeats.com for free- please ask). I made crepes with the teff and gluten free baking mix, they were yummy too.
There has been a lot of media attention lately about obesity linked to the Western diet heavily influenced by processed foods. The problem afflicts millions of people that have adopted a Western diet and can lead to serious health problems such as heart disease, adult onset diabetes, and high cholesterol. Many are allergic to foods such as wheat and dairy, knowingly or unknowingly. It is difficult to find processed foods that do not contain some amount of wheat, dairy, or sugar.
Eating healthy, whole foods is healthy and people are becoming more aware of how foods affect energy levels and overall health. Benefits include more energy, weight loss (if you need to), clearer skin and eyes, reduce aches, pains and digestive problems, release yourself from addictive habits, and feel empowered by your choices to take control of your diet and health.
What we eat affects our bodies in many ways. The time is now to eat healthy, wholesome food and live life feeling great. Your health is in your hands and life is a gift, so make the most of it.
