Cooking Class Every Night
I grew up cooking with my Mom and Mema in Miami, and we cooked every night. My husband laughs when I say, "We never went to restaurants, because every night was a cooking class."
Mostly Southern food back then, and we cooked every possible dish. So I gained a lot of experience with spices, seasonings, and the difference that could make in taste.
As we entered middle age and started to put on a few pounds, I started experimenting more with healthy eats. I became obsessed with low carb food in the 2000's during the Atkins craze. I found that particular diet, and those food choices, to be too restrictive, and very hard to make palatable.
About the same time, I was reading books and content on the South Beach Diet and Mediterranean Diet. Now I was starting to see some real possibility with lower carb, healthy foods that were also fabulous to the palate. So my attention turned to understanding these diets, and all the possibilities around these very healthy eats.
So my culinary tastes started to evolve in this direction. Still some delicious Southern food and all that offers, but more in the direction of healthy, lean, low carb recipes that are ideal for weight loss and weight management.
My Very First Customer
My first customer to try out my new culinary passion was my husband! He had mainly resisted the low carb diet for the first few years. He would try it on occasion, but as a creature of habit, he would revert back to fattening, unhealthy options that he had become accustomed to. That's what he loved!
But by the age of 45, he had packed on the pounds and his PCP told him that it's time to get serious about weight control. At least if wanted to see his daughters' weddings.
So he came around (slow but sure) to the low carb lifestyle! He started to realize that these low carb recipes were very healthy, but they were also really appetizing! And after a year of steady progress, the results of a healthy, low carb diet were profound.
He lost 80 pounds of fat over the course of 18 months by eating my low carb recipes. Now he still had his cheat days when he would indulge his old dietary lifestyle, but most of his diet was healthy and very light on carbohydrates.
The photos below show his before and after journey with the low carb lifestyle.
