At the beginning of every year, Dean always goes on a low fat/reduced carb diet to lose the pounds he had packed on during the holiday season (which for Dean starts in October with Halloween). I always start the year with giving my liver a vacation by cutting out meat, poultry fish and gluten. I then follow it up with a low calorie diet to lose a few pounds.
The next few weeks of recipes will be the inspired by our current life style shift from just low fat to also eating in a more healthful way. Hopefully, you will also be inspired and check out how tasteful a healthy meal can be.
