My approach to cooking: This can be summed up in one line – it’s how I want to eat. And if I can’t find it, I make it. Just as I describe on my home page, we are all unique and how we eat is a huge chunk of our individual-ness. For example, I choose to use no dairy from COWS – but I do use Goat products. I have found that goat yogurts, cheeses, etc. do not cause me or my family any digestive issues – not to mention, goats, for the most part are not fed GMO grains, and thrive on a diet based on variety of vegetables and grasses. In addition, I do not use gluten in my recipes (or keep to trace amounts) – again, another ingredient that does not digest well for me and my family. You will also see a trace amount of sugar. I bend towards whole, organic, real foods – not processed or at least minimally processed. I have found this approach to work for me – however, you may have no issues (digestive wise) with the ingredients I do not use. Feel free to substitute out – but I cannot guarantee the outcome, as I may not have tested it. If you are curious about a substitute or need a little guidance on a recipe, feel free to email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to get back to you!
