When it comes to healthy eating, we tend to hear all the things we SHOULDN'T be eating. All the things we have to CUT OUT. All food we have to GIVE UP.
Of course it seems unmanageable.
It goes something like this:
1. We read an article talking about how sugar contributes to weight gain and disease.
2. We think, "I could never live without dessert. Screw this."
3. We plunge into a pan of brownies to substantiate our claim.
While I'm a huge proponent of cutting out the crap, and I do think that eliminating certain foods for health purposes can be valid, I don't want people feeling like mealtime is boring or restrictive.
(NEVER restrictive. When we restrict food, we restrict nutrients. And we want ALL THE NUTRIENTS.)
Runners, athletes and other busy-bodies should REALLY not restrict nutrients. I created this recipe for Blueberry Coconut Crumble for Saltmarsh Running - it has no gluten, no grains, no refined sugars AND it's vegan. Still super yummy.
