8 Are all recipes sugar-free?
This point must be made clear, in my recipes I do not use refined sugar, neither white nor brown, nor do I use panela, syrups or honey.
I usually sweeten my recipes with other healthier sweeteners like erythritol, stevia, birch sugar, (also known as xylitol), lucuma and coconut sugar, they are characterized by having a low glycemic index, but still you will see that I always add them in discrete quantities, since it is not convenient to abuse them.
In some recipes I recommend the use of some fresh or dried fruits that provide sweetness without adding other sweeteners.
9 Are the recipes low in fat?
Not necessarily. In my recipes there are usually healthy fats, some of the ingredients rich in fat that I usually consume are avocado, coconut and other products such as coconut oil.
The nuts are essential in my kitchen, (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecan nuts, pistachios, etc), are also frequent blue fish (salmon, mackerel, tuna).
As for dairy, although I eat them more occasionally, I like them whole, Greek yogurt, skyr and kefir are some of my favorites as well as aged cheeses, fresh milk and butter.
10 Where can I find the necessary ingredients?
In my recipes I try to use fresh seasonal products and if possible proximity. The ingredients I use are mainly vegetables, all kinds of vegetables and fruits, nuts, seeds, meats, fish and eggs.
Most of the ingredients I use in my recipes are available in markets and supermarkets, however there are some products that are only sold in specialized stores in healthy food or herbalists.
11 Is it very expensive to elaborate this type of recipes?
No, most ingredients are within everyone's reach, fresh products, if they are seasonal, usually have a lower price than the rest of the year and that circumstance must be taken advantage of.
It is true that some of the products I buy in herbalists have a higher price, but if you take into account their performance and the benefits they bring to our health compared to other products in common use, I assure you that it is worth it.
