I don’t believe in dieting or following fad diets. I believe in making lifestyle changes that you can maintain forever. I believe in eating unprocessed whole food as close to nature as possible. I believe in filling your plate full of vegetables and eating a wide range of colourful food. I believe that when prepared correctly, whole food can be incredibly delicious!
I mostly use the Oldways Mediterranean Diet Pyramid to shape my overall diet. And when filling my plate, I try to adhere to the Healthy Eating Plate designed by Harvard School of Public Health. Both of these frameworks are backed by evidence based scientific studies showing strong correlations to good health and disease prevention.
