Nutrition Information

All of the recipes will include nutrient information in the form of ACTUAL nutrients. They will not include nutritional fact labels. Eating for nourishment and pleasure is different from eating a designated number of calories each day. Instead be gentle with yourself,  listen to the still, small voice within you to know when you have had enough wholesome foods and are no longer hungry. Full is not the opposite of hunger.  Enough is the opposite of hunger.
