TIP: always have healthy snacks available to curb cravings in between meals and to prevent making unhealthy food choices or overeating at meal time.

Favorite Cooking Oils

  • Coconut oil
  • Safflower oil – has a mild taste so you can easily incorporate it into recipes; has omega-6 fatty acids which have been known to help with the fat burning process; great for skin and hair health as well
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Seasonings & Spices

  • Sea salt, Himalayan pink salt, Bragg Liquid Aminos
  • Pepper
  • Italian seasoning
  • smoked paprika – provides a subtle smoky, chipotle flavor to any dish. Great in chili and burgers!

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
