Healthy, non despotic, fuss-free food that’s bursting with flavour (seduction), yet makes us feel and look our best (wholesome). Wholesome Seduction isn’t just about what we eat, it’s a way of life.
I find I’m less impressed by a dish, however tasty, if it makes me feel like I’ve been hit by a truck the next day. And somehow STILL crave more of the same lethargy inducing addictiveness. Or if it prompts the button on my jeans to pop out.
As a result, over the last 20 years (yep), I’ve avoided a biblically proportioned list of ingredients – sugar, gluten, yeast, dairy etc. I’ve done my time as an Orthorexic (the growing result of our latest, literally, ‘right eating’ obsession) and swung back to somewhere in the middle. I’ve found that some things (yeast!) aren’t my friend; I’m partial to a cacao ball; and my body’s a machine when I start the day on a green smoothie.
As it turns out, however, ‘raw’ doesn’t in fact, take ten years off, or help me drop a dress size; it makes me tired, bloated and, well, not very nice. Juice diets cause me to almost faint / vom, or both. If possible in a meeting. And my favourite travel picks don’t necessarily live by the somewhat prescriptive Clean Eating mantra, yet my body sings and I’m happy. For the record, these are my findings, everyone’s bodies are different. Cue: Wholesome Seduction.
Some universal rules: Yo-yo dieting does not a slimmer figure make (trashes our clever metabolisms) and a menu hijacked by wheat, carbs or dairy is sloppy – I’ll give options, no one likes a preacher!
By employing a modicum of consciousness into your daily nourishment (I’ll do that bit), wholesomely seductive eating quickly becomes a way of life. I promise you won’t miss the floury bloat or Pick ‘n Mix saccharine sweetness. And quite frankly, if you do, just have a little; chances are, you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about.
Follow my recipes and tips and I promise you’ll feel healthier, have more energy and, should you so desire, lose weight in the process.
If you’ve got the above nailed, tap in for my pick of the best travel spots, design picks and Wholesome Seduction yoga holidays. It’s a dirty job…
