My name is Caroline Oswald. My goal is to share healthy ideas and recipes with everyone. I've made a website:
On my website I share the 12 actions I used which helped me in 2010 go from obese to healthy (I lost 40 lbs and 50 inches) mainly by what I chose to eat.
Here at food.com my Attainable Health Digest subscribers get full access to view, post, and review recipes in our Recipe Books.
If you'd like to subscribe to the digest go here:
Here is the criteria for sharing a recipe in our cookbooks:
Must be Grain Free (no white flour, wheat flour, semolina flour, oats, etc.)
May only contain Healthy Fats (olive oil, canola oil, butter, avocado, nuts, etc.)
Low in Fat (never more than 1/3 cup)
Low in Sugar (never more than 1/2 cup)
If sugar is used it may not be refined white sugar, acceptable sweeteners for our recipes are:
Fresh Fruit, Dates, Raw Honey, Evaporate Cane Sugar, Organic Brown Sugar, Organic Powder Sugar
No man-made highly processed sugar substitutes (sweet n low, Nutrasweet, Equal, Splenda, Stevia (white powder version; however the fresh herb leaves are fine)
No cornstarch or corn syrup (instead use arrowroot as a thickener, and for corn syrup you may substitute raw honey or a simple sugar syrup with is 1/2 cup evaporated cane juice sugar 1/3 cup water - bring to a boil until it thickens slightly, then let cool)
Preservative free, no artificial flavors or colorings, no msg or additives.
The recipe must also contain some nutritional content - at least one of the ingredients must contain one of these components: vitamin, mineral, fiber, protein, etc.)
Other things to take into consideration:
Try to keep the recipe simple - a few ingredients can go a long way and let the natural flavors of the foods shine
Flavor can be brought out with fresh herbs, garlic, onions, vinegars, fruits (especially fresh citrus juices), and a sprinkle of unrefined sea salt
Ease of preparation makes everyone's life easier! So try and simplify the steps involved in making the recipe.
Whenever possible when cooking, the fats should be added at the end of the preparation to add flavor instead of over-saturating the food in the fat (of course in baking the fat must be included prior to baking)
