A Note From the Author
We know that the definition of “Healthy” is a loaded concept that is different for everyone. Here is ours:
Eat. Real. Food.
We try to keep it simple and always come back to this basic concept when defining healthy. If most of meals are made up of real food that doesn’t come highly processed from a package, we are on the right track.
