The days of eating unhealthy is here, people are prone to get diseases like diabetes and hypertension from bad eating habbits. Bad eating habbits stem from your environment, if you have bad unhealthy foods surrounding you then that is what you will eat unfortunately.

I been cooking most of my life, and it's in a home setting and for small groups of no more than a dozen that I thrive. I like to be relaxed and mingle with my customers or fans.

What ever it is that you may want to eat, I am pretty certain, I can make it for you. I have a history of high blood pressure, and a fluctuating weight issue, but like you I'm trying to eat the best i can, and being able to cook for myself, you'd think I am eating right all of the time, but facts are, I am always somewhere in a vicinity that may not have good healthy foods.

I worked in a health food store as a chef preparing meals consisting of only vegetables and some dairy, and worked in all kinds of other food joints, so I can pull of most of the popular meals one may want to eat when they go out to eat with friends.

Call me for a quote and what is expected.

We live in a new world, we don't have to cook like the old school cooks or chefs, the simple way of cooking, such as the way the Asians prepare foods or Indians (India) can be much more healthy and beneficial. I try not to do any deglazing anymore, instead just use natural fruits or vegetables to make healthy sauces without butter or dairy products.

To get some good ideas when you are traveling and you don't own a laptop or an iPad, or e-reader, you can still purchase some good food magazines for less than 6.00, Eating Healthy Mag. is a good magazine to look through on a flight back home, or on a long bus ride. I do suggest anyone interested in vegan cooking to purchase Tal Ronnen's book "the conscious cook" it is a good book full of healthy vegan recipes, and the presentations are beautiful to look at.


Poaching foods is a good idea instead of frying, especially where saturated fats are concerned, when eating for a healthy heart, you want to minimize a few items, one is sodium chloride (salt), and of course the fats that are released from foods such as fatty beef, pork, and poultry. Poaching releases these fats in boiling water, the good news is, you can dump that fatty water out, and what's left is a low fat protein.

Good luck in your healthy cooking quest for a better life.
