I believe in living life to the fullest, especially when it comes to food. Food excites me in all sorts of ways. I love to cook and experiment with new recipes while putting a healthy spin on some of my favorite dishes and doing my best to ensure flavor all the way. Believe it or not, you can eat healthy and have flavor at the same time, it just takes some thought, a little planning and a few tricks of the trade. Cooking has become a passion for me and I am always on a mission to find more ways to prepare nutritious, delicious meals that I can share with my friends, family and now you.
On this page, I will share my my food experiences from new foods that I have tried, healthy recipes that I have created and what I choose to eat when I am out at a restaurant to keep the healthy balance in my life. I will show you how to take what would normally be an unhealthy choice and turn into a lower fat Skinny Healthy food, like my spinach artichoke dip and homemade pita chips. Or even my “You’d Never Know It’s Lowfat Cheesecake Recipe”.
I have always had an interest in cooking, even when I was a little girl. I would watch my dad cook amazing food as I asked tons of questions and helped prepare the meals whenever I could. He taught me so much from how to make a proper roux to how to use a knife so that I wouldn’t cut my fingers, even though it sometimes comes with the territory, ouch.
In addition, my husband and I have had the amazing opportunity to work on a number of different Food Network television shows, so are always sharing even more knowledge with each other from what we have learned from the professionals. We travel all over the world together and food is a big part of our experiences everywhere we go. We will order foods in restaurants and actually come up with our own version that we plan to make when we get home while we are eating like our Simple White Bean Dip Olive Oil Dip below. I can’t wait to share all of my skinny healthy flavorful foods and recipes with you.
