Recipes For Evolution ™

When I started my transformation, I wanted to find a diet that worked for me.  Instead I found a nutrition plan and I set up my own guidelines.  Bill Phillips and his program Transformation have provided me with the information that I needed to help me come up with a nutrition program within his.  I personally am a little more strict with mine but it comes down to what ever works for the individual.  If you don’t enjoy the food, than you will never stick with it.  I had started with a different diet and realized that it was set up to fail.  At least for me.  I started getting my nutrition within Transformations educational guidelines and started to stick with Free Range Chicken and Eggs, Grass Fed Beef and Seafood for Protein and Organic Fruits and Vegetables.  The food that I was making was so good that I knew that I could eat like this for the rest of my life.  No More bland diets for me.  I’m eating food that tastes so good that you would think that there was no way that it was healthy.

Start the day out right with both protein and carbs.  You have heard, “breakfast is the most important meal”

One of my favorite meals is out of Bill Phillips cook book “Eating For Life” :  I use RAW honey as the sugar replacement.
