Recipe Idea Shop: Simple Food for Healthy Living
Hello. Welcome to Recipe Idea Shop. Thanks for visiting. It’s Lois & Don at Recipe Idea Shop, our simple food for healthy living website. Most of our recipes are easy and require little preparation. We give you simple, step-by-step instructions, a picture and the nutrition of each recipe. (Read Why Read Nutrition Labels.) When you know how many calories, fats and carbs you are eating, trust us—you will choose to eat a reasonable portion size or make a better food choice.
We encourage you to eat a variety of foods. That’s what we do, and we are healthy (even though we are older). We try to eat a balanced meal every time we eat. Sometimes that doesn’t happen; sometimes I make a meal of popcorn or Don eats a big piece of steak. But overall, by knowing what’s in our food, making everything from scratch, watching the portion sizes and taking our time eating, we eat more healthfully and truly savor our life.
Ready to Focus on Healthier Eating?
As Don and I have gotten older, like most people who thought they could eat fast food forever, we have experienced weight gain and, in my case, some serious health issues. (I’m healthy now, thanks.) You can read my story about How I Healed Myself with Food to learn more. We’ve learned to take better care of ourselves.
Made-from-scratch recipes using whole foods are cheaper, healthier and tastier than ready-made, store-bought meals. Don and I teach you how to make amazing meals that fit into a working schedule (take a look at my Gluten Free Tomato Basil Breakfast Tart with a Fried Egg on Top (picture above)—it’s pretty darn easy and OH! So tasty. We also offer some takes-several-hours-and-some-skills recipes. Try Don’s Apple Cranberry Tart for one of these (you will be glad you tried it).
