In case you didn't know, here at GG we love food - and we love to talk about it! So much so, that we want to welcome to the first edition of a new series (yet to be titled) about Nutrition & Health! My name is Joshua Scarpuzzi and I'm a young, run of mill, self proclaimed health-food nut! I've transformed my diet from starch-n-carbs, into an all-natural, plant-based vegan one. This is not just a one-time thing either; it's a lifestyle. We're absolutely thrilled to share tips with you and help guide you on the path to your own nutritional transformation! We'll be sharing recipes and "fun facts" and hope you try them all!
First thing's first -- I want to make one thing very clear: getting healthy is NOT about weighing, measuring, or counting the fats, grams, calories, carbs, or points of the same unhealthy food you already eat! Its about making conscious daily choices in what we give our bodies to utilize.
Making the switch to a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle is undoubtedly an undertaking, and it's one that I struggled with for a while, actually. But the resources are out there and most importantly your body deserves it. Once you start to adopt it, you will feel healthier and more fit then you have in years! However, if you're not up for the switch yet, all of my recipes are meat friendly -- so if you want to add meat that's up to you. I will encourage you, though, to try them meatless at least once. You may just like it!
Remember, nothing tastes as good as healthy feels! And if you can't understand that yet, don't worry. You will!
Now, on to the fun stuff...
