However in the past, we have fallen victim to TONS of unsustainable crash diets.
We believed that starving ourselves was the best approach to avoid adding body fat.
In other words, we had a bad relationship with food.

And that’s why my mother and I teamed up to create the Fearless Foodie Cookbook.
We’re going to be real with you.
We haven’t always been as fit and healthy as we are now.
There was a time when we struggled with cellulite, pockets of fat, and embarrassment about our bodies.
We thought the only way to get skinny was through willpower.
We also believed that if we did get fat, it was our own fault for letting our guard down and indulging in guilty pleasures.

Eating good healthy food to the point of feeling happily full (plus working out) will bring your body into perfect balance. For some that may mean losing weight. The key is to eat enough to feel satisfied, but avoid over-eating. We’ve designed all of these recipes to have a balance of carbohydrates, fiber, protein, healthy fats, as well as vitamins and minerals that will nourish your body at the same time as providing a pleasing and satiating experience. We find that with the right balance in your nutrition the temptation to over-eat becomes less, therefore your weight naturally maintains the right level.

We would not call ourselves professional chefs, but we are experienced and enthusiastic and we have tried each of these recipes multiple times so we know that they work.
Preparing delicious healthy food transforms your fear of food and cooking for yourself helps you become aware of what you are eating. We feel that you will lose your desire for fast or take out food after you learn how to make delicious high quality food at home. You are what you eat and it is best that you know exactly what you are putting into your body. Over the years we have learned that developing a love for healthy cooking and making food at home has helped us overcome our fear or eating the wrong foods or over-eating. Often times over-eating is a symptom of previously under-eating, so keeping a steady stream of balanced nutrition is the best way to fall for either trap.
It’s up to you. All of our recipes are pretty balanced and macro-friendly. When you eat whole natural foods like the ones in these recipes and you are getting a variety each day, you don’t have to worry so much about the numbers. If you have a specific weight loss or gain goal you may want to create a meal plan that aligns with your goals. We’ve provided calorie and macro info on each recipe for your convenience.
Absolutely. The recipes in this book are all plant based, so if you want to make a dish into a vegan or vegetarian option, you can easily substitute beans, eggs or cheese for meat or other animal products. We do not recommend soy, but tempeh once in a while is an option as it is fermented.
No, sorry we do not offer a hard-copy version, but you can certainly print out the recipes if you like.
Desiree Rumbaugh (the co-author) is 58 years young! and many of these recipes are staples in her diet. Eating well at any and every age is important and there is certainly no age-restriction on healthy balanced eating.
It’s been our experience that we don’t need to use it as a meat substitute, we either choose chicken, fish, turkey, eggs, or the occasional red meat as our regular sources of protein. Vegetarians can use tempeh, beans, nuts and sprouts to replace animal meat protein in these recipes.
Yes! We enjoy eating red meat on occasion though we do use it sparingly. In this book we decided to share with you only our most frequent and regular dietary staples. There are many reasons for using red meat sparingly, one being in favor of the environment. We are very particular about the type of red meat that we will eat, preferring grass fed and grass finished over conventionally produced beef. This is a very expensive type of meat but once in a while it is a great treat and it has a lot of health benefits. We might choose to eat grass fed red beef out at a nice restaurant for a special occasion or treat ourselves at home once a month.
Depending on your body size, we recommend about two to four per day.
Definitely keep the yolks in! Egg yolks are very healthy for you. We recommend cooking them very gently over low-heat to retain as many of the nutrients as possible. Desiree puts two organic egg yolks in her smoothie every other day and then cooks the whites to enjoy with her salad at lunch.
Unless your doctor or nutritionist has specifically recommended supplements, you may not need any if you are eating a clean well balanced diet. if you have your blood work done and find that your thyroid is out of balance or anything else for that matter, we suggest you consult with a qualified nutritionist. Desiree did this at the time of menopause and it made all the difference for her. She had low thyroid and adrenal fatigue, but now, with the proper supplementation, nutrition and exercise, she is feeling better than ever.
There is a lot of press about gluten these days. Organic wheat might be fine and digestible for many people, but when you eat stop eating gluten in the form of refined flour and substitute it with more plant food your digestion and assimilation of food improves dramatically. Refined flour products turn into sugar during the digestion process and too much sugar causes inflammation which is the root of many diseases in the body. We find that gluten containing foods are not necessary and you can have a full and vibrant diet without them! So regardless if you are gluten tolerant or not, we figure why not try to live gluten-free? Bread and pasta are inferior food sources to plants and best to save for only occasional use.
