Frequently Asked Questions
You’re always talking about superfoods. What is a superfood anyway?
I define a superfood as a nutrient-dense natural food … a food that has the most amount of nutrients per calorie. I’m not interested in semantics, and see “superfoods” as a general philosophy of eating: an ongoing adventure to acquire the very best foods available (and transform them into delicious cuisine).
What are the calorie contents and nutrition values of the recipes you post?
When Julie bring foods into my kitchen, Julie don’t track calories, She collect nutrients. Julie also aim to make recipes that are loosely “balanced” in macro nutrients as well (fats, protein, and carbohydrates). If you’re keeping track, She recommend using one of the free online counters like FitDay.com to find out the quantity of nutrients in the recipes, and then divide your results by the number of servings.
Is Julie a nutritionist or dietitian?
No. Nor a doctor. She is simply a chef who loves working with the best foods I can get my hands on, and I find it rewarding to share the results of my research. I appreciate the work that goes on in these fields, but for the average person I also believe one should not have to get a degree in health to understand how to eat well.
