Have ya’ll ever been to Foodgawker.com? If not- first of all, STOP reading this post and head there IMMEDIATELY. If you love beautiful food, you can spend hours scrolling through impeccably photographed, tasty treats. I generally pin them to my Pinterest board, as I love the combination of gorgeous aesthetics and meal ideas together and it gets them all in one place. My food inspiration starts at Foodgawker a lot of the time!
So today I’m going to share some of my favorites with you. Most of these follow my general nutritional guidelines (high protein, lots of veggies, lower carb, healthy fats- Precision Nutrition style) and a few healthier desserts thrown in, too 🙂 The majority of these recipes would fall under the labels of “clean eating,” “paleo” or “low carb,” but I didn’t hold them to any strict nutritional barometer necessarily. I just enjoy eating nourishing foods that aren’t terribly carb heavy overall.
When I’m at home, I like to cook pretty on-target to my nutritional guidelines- so that I can enjoy “cheat” meals when I’m out with friends or in social situations. However I don’t really call it a “cheat”- I just call it moderation and eating mindfully. I don’t restrict myself of anything, so I end up not going all out “CRAZY” when I do. I just enjoy myself when I feel like I want to, then rein it in at home. (You can read more on my general nutrition philosophies here if you’re interested. I also recommend checking out Jill Coleman at JillFit Physiques– she’s like the mindful eating goddess and has excellent advice on her site and all of her social media accounts. I particularly enjoy her newsletter!)
Enjoy! And my apologies if this post makes you hungry.
