About Nourish Everyday
Nourish Everyday grew out of a desire to bring real, minimally-processed, nutritious food into the everyday. Working as a lawyer, surrounded by people living busy, high-stress lifestyles – interested in being healthy, but not spending too long working out what goes with what, and which foods to buy – I saw (and continue to see) the importance of bringing nutrition back to the essentials. Food doesn’t need to be complicated; using simple, whole food ingredients we can enjoy food that is truly nourishing, everyday. Our supermarkets are crowded full of products labelled ‘organic’, ‘healthy’ and ‘natural’, and far too often, they don’t give you any nutritional bang for your buck. Ditto with the various ‘diets’ and ‘cleanses’ out there.
But where to start, then? Nourish Everyday sets you up with information to stock a healthy kitchen based on natural real food ingredients (mostly supermarket-accessible!), and shows you how to use your ingredients in an ever-growing collection of easy healthy recipes. You can make many ahead of time and even stock them in the freezer so you’re always set up for a nutritious day. As much as possible, I like to keep the recipes on this site to ingredients made out of the items listed on the Everyday Essentials Shopping List.
Nourish Everyday’s Food Philosophy
Nourish Everyday is not built on a particular eating style, and it’s definitely NOT about being on any kind of “diet”. It’s just about eating healthy, minimally-processed, real food. As a starting point, all recipes are gluten-free, additive-free and free of refined sugar. Where possible, recipes will always feature variations to suit vegan, vegetarian and/or paleo lifestyles (or, the recipe will naturally just exist that way). Many recipes do draw inspiration from these eating lifestyles because of their emphasis on using a rainbow of vegetables, fruits and unprocessed whole food ingredients.
