“This year, I’m going to eat better”, the Average Person proclaims every January 1st. If you needed any evidence, Google released their top ten “how to” search spikes for the 2015 new year. 6 of the 10 had to do with losing weight or preparing healthy food.
Our purpose here at Average Dude Food is not to dictate your diet. Our mission is to give you easy recipes that save you money and keep you from deliberating too long on what to eat. In short, we want you to cook at home as much as possible. We also want to keep health in mind.
Most of time time, cooking at home and eating a good diet go hand-in-hand. However, our overall philosophy towards nutrition and diet is simple. We think Michael Pollan says it best: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
We aren’t here to help you watch calories or make big gains. We’re here to help you take control of your time and money while eating food that will keep you filled up and ready to go during the day. How much you eat and what you eat between meals is none of our business. (Note: For those of you who are not meat eaters, we are doing our best to incorporate recipes that are vegetarian or can easily be modified to make vegetarian, so bear with us).
Just to make it clear: we are here to save you time and money by cooking at home. We want you to spend your time and money on things that matter to you, and we think cooking at home is a great way to make that possible.
We want Average Dude Food to be a community where you can share your ideas. We do not have degrees in nutrition or professional training, and we don’t pretend to know it all. If you have recipe ideas or easy ways to add nutrition to your diet, please share by leaving a comment.
Thanks for visiting, Average Dude (or Dudette). We’re glad you’re here and taking control of your money, your health, and your food.
