Ever since I could use a step stool, I would plate my food in an artistic way and make believe it was fine dining. As a kiddo, I read cookbooks, admired mom in the kitchen, and later binge watched Food Network. Little resentful still of Rachael Ray for taking my name to build a Culinary Empire- that was my dream! But luckily there can be two Rae’s… Just not In the same kitchen.
My thirty something year old body can’t get away with eating what it used to. This doesn’t mean so long Mac and Cheese or Hasta La Vista nostalgic casseroles. But it does however mean altering recipes into a healthier version that agrees with the body and medical concerns.
Educating myself about health trends and using food as medicine is a top priority. I get creative in the kitchen from low FODMAP to anti inflammatory grain free options to substituting squash for pasta. Transforming tasty restaurant favorites into lower calorie options…But always aiming to preserve the flavor. It brings me such joy hearing people moan in delight over my dishes and then be surprised to hear that it’s healthy too!
Join me in my kitchen for some home cooked RAEcipes.
