Eat To Lose Weight

When we think about losing weight, we often think about what not to eat. Another way to look at it is to think about what foods support the body to thrive and lose weight naturally. It isn’t very common to hear someone say you can lose weight without any calorie counting or portion control, is it?

Our Health and Natural Weight Loss program does just that. It has guidelines, but ultimately no restrictions. And the foods we recommend are so delicious that over time you have no desire to go back to old ways of eating.

We’ve been eating this way for over 30 years and we can both say that each week, as we eat these whole food, plant based, high nutrient meals, we feel great, have lots of energy and haven’t had so much as a cold for years. We’re both in our 70’s now and are so grateful for the natural regenerative power our bodies have to maintain an active, vital lifestyle as we age.

We talk more about our program in this week’s video that includes Dr. Neal Barnard’s take on what foods to eat to lose weight. Enjoy:

We are so thrilled that many medical doctors are stepping forward to encourage people to eat Whole Food Plant Based, High Nutrient Foods to heal the body and lose weight naturally.

Our work is supporting people to have a healthy relationship with food and be free from using food to numb feelings or escape a busy mind. By learning to listen to our body’s wisdom for what to eat we have an opportunity to let go of inflammatory foods naturally, without effort, and see the impact that it has on our health and energy.

We love this work, supporting others to know what foods provide the sustenance for regeneration and coaching people to be free of using food in ways that don’t support them.

For the recipe this week we’re sharing our favorite Simply Apples Applesauce. We’ve been doing this for years and here in Kelowna we have a friend who has an organic orchard. Needless to say, this time of year, when we can buy organic apples for 50 cents a pound that are small or scarred, we buy lots.

When we get them home, we simply wash them, core them and cook ’em up, skins and all. It is so much more flavorful than store bought, higher in nutrients and lower in cost. Find an apple farmer and support the farmer and your health.

To Your Amazing Health,
Connie and Bill

Simply Apples Applesauce

Use as many apples as you want, cored and cut in pieces, leaving the skin on. No need to measure anything with this recipe because it’s simply apples.

You can cut them into large or small pieces. The larger pieces leave larger pieces of skin in the finished sauce, which some people like the taste and texture of.

Instructions:
Cut the cored apples into a saucepan and turn it on very low heat. As the apples heat, the juice collects in the bottom of the pan so you don’t need to add additional liquid. This keeps the applesauce very rich tasting.

Check the apples after 10 minutes or so and stir from the bottom up to ensure the juice is forming in the bottom of the pan and the heat isn’t too high.

Cook for approximately 30 minutes or until the apples are soft enough to mash with a potato masher.

Mash and serve.

This applesauce is fabulous just plain, or you can add some additional fruits or spices to “spice it up” a bit more.

Enjoy!

Optional Additions:
Raisins
Frozen berries
Cinnamon
Cardamom
