Welcome! To Good Decisions…Most of the Time!
Your gluten free, soy free and dairy free resource for healthy recipes!
Because life is too short not to have chocolate or red wine, or whatever your favorite treat may be, I have titled the site, Good Decisions… Most of the Time.
This is not a diet, which is only temporary. It’s a way of life. You don’t have to count calories or limit your portion sizes. The primary components of the Good Decisions way of life teaches you to eat healthy food, learn to be in tune with your body, and honor it by eating only when your hungry, and stopping when your body tells you to. The Good Decisions way of life is not about limiting intakes, but rather excluding unhealthy foods and incorporating nutrient-dense whole food, and learning how to self-govern effectively around food.
All Healthy Recipes
You will not find any unhealthy recipes on this site; it is designed to be a reliable resource for healthy recipes, nutritional information and other information regarding health. Most of the recipes you will find on this site are gluten, soy and dairy free. We do this because they are common allergens and can be problematic and inflammatory for many people.
If your body does well with dairy you may click on the “Dairy” category recipe tabs to find delicious dairy recipes.
