About Dinner In Provence
Hiya, and Welcome!
Dinner In Provence is meant as a food resource for people in modern Western societies who want to reconnect with their food roots, improve their relationship with food ,and re-learn to eat more traditionally.
More sustainably. More sanely.
I have a small but growing collection of recipes that I’ve manually curated for balanced nutrition and hearty, wholesome nourishment.
My recipes regularly get comments like “OMG I could eat this every day for the rest of my life.”
And while I don’t recommend you ACTUALLY do that :), it’s nice to know that whatever you cook is going to be something you reallllly look forward to – even after a crazy stressful day of work.
I created this collection because I couldn’t find another food blog that focused on “diet food” AND “comforting, soul-healing food” at the same time.
I consider it my mission to create nourishing food that you look forward to eating every meal – that you can still lose weight or get healthier on.
Healthy comfort food, hearty salads, and family favorites like tacos. You’ll find all those here.
It’s really all about portions and balance. I either develop recipes from scratch, or adapt an existing recipe with reasonable fats and carbs. I typically amp up protein, veggies and fiber wherever I can.
In short, I’ve taken the guesswork out of healthy home cooking. I’ve done the work for you.
All you have to do is buy ingredients and cook.
I’ve also shortened up cooking steps where we can – because it’s Tuesday night not Top Chef, amirite? Sometimes you just freaking need dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.
But I also have plenty of slow-cook, “hands off” type recipes that are perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons. Because there are weekends you just wanna sip a glass of wine and use cooking as meditation, stress relief, and fun.
Maybe read a little book while the meat braises.
And that’s OK too.
Let’s Fall In Love With Food Again
In many Western societies, we have so many privileges that we have fallen ill to “Diseases of Affluence”. One of our primary challenges toward health is changing our belief systems about food.
We want people to feel permission to enjoy real foods again. Corporate advertising has made us more afraid of Pasta than Pepsi. That is a broken system.
Dinner In Provence is the Food Blog home for people who love food.
Food that nourishes and heals our bodies. Food that gives us deep, inexplicable pleasure. Food that your Grandmother would recognize.
This is the place all you health-minded food lovers will find a whole-food, non-exclusive recipe collection, adjusted for modern lifestyles – healthy, healing, and macronutrient balanced.
Welcome to Dinner In Provence! I’m so glad you’re here.
So now the real question: What are you cooking tonight? Check out my ever-growing, curated Recipe Collection here.
