Cooking for your loved ones can be a challenge. You want to give them the best foods but the sweetest foods may not be the healthiest. Tip #110 in my book says “Today’s modern diet have become high in processed foods. It is both acid-forming and leads to disease and ill health around the globe. Acid-forming foods could lead to kidney and liver damage, potentially even increasing your risk for diabetes.”
My dad loves desserts. Glutten free deserts may be the best option for himself and yourself alike.
Enjoying a delicious dessert at the end of a great meal is one of life’s sweetest pleasures.
Moist vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream… warm pumpkin pie… crème brulée… carrot cake with cream cheese frosting… fresh brownies…
Or just imagine the smell of freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies wafting from your kitchen…
Just thinking about these decadent creations makes your mouth water and few of us have the willpower to resist.
But we often feel guilty for indulging in sweet treats. After all, most desserts are filled with sugar, refined carbohydrates and unhealthy fats, and they pack more calories than the meal itself!
Too many “sweet treats” like this will not only make you fat… it could ruin your health! This book is a guideline on how to enjoy the foods you and your loved ones like to eat and snack on but through glutten free and healthy avenues. It’s been my main source for myself and parents.
Hands down, Mediterranean food is the best! As both a full time graduate student and full time caregiver, my time to cook was very limited. However, i do remember visiting a Mediterranean restaurant for lunch each day, (and yes, I became a regular customer). The food was satisfying and delicious, not to mention healthy!! Mediterranean food has its benefits. I didn’t feel heavy and stuffed, which gave me more energy to stay up late during the wee hours of the morning. Tip 24 in my book says “A Mediterranean diet is rich in healthy fats (like olive oil),fish and produce. A study done by the University of Gothenburg show the chances of living longer increased 20% from eating a Mediterranean diet.”
