JO’S HEALTHY KITCHEN came into being when I learned that I was both gluten and lactose intolerant later in life. It came as quite a blow – food and cooking have always been very important to me.
Initially, I ate simple, safe meals – meat or fish with a couple of vegetables or a salad but I wanted more than that and began the process of educating myself about what I could and couldn’t eat and what was really in some of the foods on the supermarket shelves – it was enlightening!
I soon realized that what I had thought of as a negative was actually a huge positive. Not only was I forced to eat a healthier diet but my cooking became more creative and interesting – experimenting with combinations of herbs and spices, different cuisines, discovering new ingredients. It was very exciting – finally cooking without compromise!
Enjoy my healthy recipes cooked from scratch.
