 Your preparation of foods determines whether you get full health benefits from them or not. We share here simple and easy to prepare day to day recipes. I believe home-cooked food is the healthiest way of eating. Our recipes are also uniquely rated with a green dot (health-promoting), yellow dot (healthy balance), green-yellow (meal replacer), or red dots (watch out) to help you make a mindful decision about your food choices. So if you enjoy cooking simple and healthy foods, take a look and eat with intention, responsibility, and confidence!
