Loving food can be hard sometimes. and I love food. Yes, I am the type of person that might've just had breakfast and already I am thinking about what I am going to have for lunch...and I blame it all on my Mexican roots. As a little girl, we couldn't leave the table without finishing the entire plate of food. When we were teenagers, my female relatives (aka as my grandma) would tell us that the only way to a man's heart was through our cooking. So yeah, go figure. Anyways, throughout the years I've been educating myself on the science and value of food. I've experimented with almost every diet you can think of, from South Beach to Atkins to Weight Watchers. Also I've always had gut problems (which I won't go into details here because this is a freaking delicious food post!!!). Until recently, I've discovered that I am sensitive to gluten. Because of this, I have been even more careful about what I put in my mouth and even more persistent on continuing my research about food and what it does to your body. From all of this, here is one major thing that I've learned and that I would like to share with you: eating healthy can truly be delicious and rewarding.
This New Year 2018, one of my resolutions is to commit myself to myself. I want to be the healthiest version of myself and give my body the nutrients that it needs to perform at its best- emotionally, spiritually and physically. Super cliche, but research has indeed proven that you are what you eat. The nutrients you put in your body determine your emotional state, your energy levels, your concentration levels- I mean literally EVERYTHING.
With that said, since we (by we I mean us the foodies) know that completely cutting restaurants from our lives is not option, here I have listed my favorite healthy restaurants in Austin:
