We are what we eat:
Garbage in; garbage out.
If you put low-grade fuel into a high-performance machine, it’ll run like a low-grade machine… if at all. The bottom line is that our bodies run on the fuel we give them. If you can provide better fuel, your body will perform at a higher level.
Let’s eat better.
Healthy Vegetable Soup
While this takes a little effort to put together, it’s really quite simple: Veggies, broth and spices.
We love some good tomato soup and it turns out to be easy to make. Four ingredients and minimal prep.
Butternut Squash Enchiladas
This is a great way to eat healthier with something that tastes great. Don’t let the word “squash” turn you away. These are pretty easy to make and did I mention tasty?
Red-ish Enchilada Sauce
It easy enough to buy enchilada sauce at the store, but this just tastes better. And it’s pretty easy to make. And, yeah, it’s not very red. But it isn’t a green sauce, so we call it “Red”.
Spicy, Slow-Roasted Almonds
Slow-roasted Almonds are a tasty snack, but add a little spice and they are that much better. Making your own means you can be sure they are slow-roasted (healthier!) and you control what goes into the recipe.
We discovered fresh-made Guacamole on the San Antonio Riverwalk. Since then we’ve been making it at home. This isn’t as simple as some of our recipes (it has eight ingredients!), but it’s still pretty easy to make.
Making Almond Butter
Almond Butter is a staple around our house: It’s such a great, healthy snack. But it can be expensive, too stiff and sometimes the oil separates out. So we started making our own and we’ve settled on a method that produces great results every time—with none of the downsides.
Versatile Peanut Sauce
This sauce is quick and easy to make and can be used for a couple of different meals.
Working with Avocados
We use a lot of avocados, so let’s look at ways to store and prepare them—including cutting an avocado using Terry’s Method for Not Going to the Emergency Room!
Avocado Toast (Guac version)
I know, I know. Very trendy. But I happen to like avocado toast, so here is a simple take on it.
