How to Cook

My goal in cooking is to use fresh ingredients to prepare meals that are simple and healthy. I feel like good quality ingredients should be showcased, not overcooked, leaving them in as natural state as possible for the most flavor and nutrition. Everything that I share with you are dishes with this in mind. I know that like myself you are busy but still want to enjoy healthy foods so follow along with me to learn simple and healthy cooking techniques.

Cooking Techniques

Some of the techniques that I enjoy using to prepare foods are steaming, roasting, stir-fry, smoothies, fermenting veggies, making kombucha, making kefir, yogurt and butter. Everything that I make is filtered through the question

“Is it feeding my body or feeding disease”?
