Being on a healthy diet doesn’t mean having to give up tasty, comfort foods. Whether you’re trying to lose weight, eating for a fitness goal or just trying to eat more healthily, enjoying nutritious, tasty foods should always be a priority in our lives! It’s no use eating healthy but bland, tasteless food if you dislike every bite of it because it's an unsustainable diet.  Building a good relationship with our food is just as important as getting the right nutrients.That’s why we make it our top priority to make sure none of our recipes lack in either taste or nutrition.

A great example of this is our grass-fed meatballs and green beans fettuccine with homemade tomato sauce. We took the classic meatballs and spaghetti formula, and tweaked it a little bit so that it’ll keep you looking and feeling great. Check out our recipes for this below, and see for yourself that homemade, gluten-free, high fibre, and low carb foods don’t have to look or taste like they’re designed for rabbits!
