I love food. Like, a lot. A year ago I went to a nutritionist to see why my stomach always hurt and he basically said that eating like a frat boy was the culprit. (What? Wings and nachos and pizza are bad for you??) I was told to clean up my act and my food intake. Eat as close to the original source as possible. I just can't quit the Cape Cod chips...ever.
My nutritionist suggested upping my appreciation of food and what it can do for the body I live in. So above is a great example of the easiest lunch that actually tastes completely indulgent. Avocados have replaced peanut butter in my life and figs with honey have (kind of) filled my hankering for something sweet. I make the tomato and cannellini bean salad above all the time and highly recommend it. Read on for how to get a little more healthy in your life...
