Welcome to the Palmerston Pantry!
A name inspired by my street and therefore where the majority of my kitchen playtime takes place. I have created this blog as a platform to share recipes and nutritional information that can be incorporated into your day to day life. The recipes shown are based mostly upon a wholefood and sugar free choice of eating – however every now and again I may get a little bit crazy and put something up that may not meet the above criteria and before you go into panic mode realise that it is actually quite ok to treat yourselves on the odd occasion.
My food philosophy doesn’t come under a specific heading in fact I have a strong dislike for headings and disagree with those who limit themselves so narrowly that when they accidentally consume something that does not fit under their “eating definition” they punish themselves for it which totally contradicts the point of healthy eating – it is meant to make you feel good about yourself!
I am a firm believer that we are all different and what may work for one person does not necessarily work for another. My diet consists of 99% fresh fruit, vegetables, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds. I do eat dairy in the form of greek yoghurt, eggs weekly and have the occasional serving of white meat and glass of pinot grigio. When I do choose to eat meat I am adamant that my selection is grass-fed, free range or organic which means the price tends to be slightly higher and therefore purchased not as often (winning for all) but find a “protein hit” in a number of other forms. I have found that eating this way works for me and makes me feel great.
Remember don’t give up practice makes perfect. I was previously banned from my family kitchen from years of burning/curdling/undercooking/serving food you wouldn’t serve to your pets type cooking and now can comfortably say I serve a pretty mean dish of goodness.
I hope you find what you read useful and thank you for visiting.
