Good Food. Done Right.
For some of us, researching and experimenting becomes too difficult or too restrictive—or worse, it takes the joy of eating and cooking away.
We should never have to feel bad about what we eat or how we eat it. When I tell people that I am all about “Good Food, Done Right,” it is more than a catchphrase; it is a philosophy.
I wanted to capture it in a way that anyone can take charge of their eating and not look over their shoulders to think about “what will people think if I eat this?”
So here is my unofficial proclamation of culinary independence—my Bill of Rights that anyone can uphold when it comes to food, cooking, and mealtimes. You may just find you enjoy the process of making meals that much more!
Section I ...We the Foodies...
Section II—...in Order to Form a More Perfect Meal...
Section III...Establish Rights on How and Why We Eat.
Balance your food intake. Gorging all the time is not good. Fasting all the time is not good. Food is nourishment, fuel, medication and enjoyment. Finding that balance with food and life is one of the biggest reasons Americans differ from Europe. Enjoy, savor and love your food.
A lot is to be said about laughter and love during a meal. Besides, we cannot overeat when we are too busy eating or laughing!
Listen to your body. Your body speaks to you in a language—pain—it wants you to understand. When it does not respond well to something, it knows—and it shows. When the alarm bells go off, start by removing the biggest culprits (Sugar, Grains and Dairy). Think about removing “carbage” from your diet. Get them out and feature them as a treat in your life rather than part of a complete meal.
