Le Chateau Soleil is the restaurant I have not yet opened. So many of my friends encouraged me to blog about food and seek my advice when it comes to cooking, nutrition, and eating sustainably that I could not put it off any longer.
What is this blog about? It is about elevating food to a new level. It is about elevating health to a new level. It is about elevating our environment to a new level. Our food choices are the most immediate and powerful impact we can have on our health and our planet.
America is a food wasteland right now filled with pesticides and chemicals, marketing schemes and a tremendous amount of misinformation about cooking and nutrition. This blog will help set the record straight.
This blog will feature:
Whole Foods - We will constantly ask the question, "Does it grow that way?" The further away from its natural state the further away it should be from your plate.
Plant-Based - 100% animal-free foods. No meat. No dairy. No cheese. No questions.
No Processed Oils - America has an obsession with oil, and we're not talking sweet crude. We're talking about extra virgin olive oil, canola oil, butter, margarine, etc. If it is yellow and sloshes around in a bottle or a tub, you won't find it in these recipes. The only use for it is occasionally greasing a pan and even that I will avoid wherever possible.
You will learn to cook better than you ever have before. You will learn to eat better than you ever have before. This site is for foodies with a conscience.
To Your Health,
