From Our Kitchen to Yours!

Eating well is as much a part of promoting good health as running or walking, so we want to give you something healthy to do between workouts. You can read more about our guidelines for a healthy diet in either the Chi Running book or the Chi Walking book

We recommend using fresh organic ingredients whenever they're available. It might cost a bit more now, but the lack of chemical sprays and fertilizers in your system will pay off in the "long run."

Most of our recipes are meals in themselves. We usually serve just one, rich, healthy course for each meal. This makes prep and clean-up a lot simpler and helps you regulate your caloric intake.


Calculating Quantities

You'll find our way of calculating ingredient amounts a little different. We begin by calculating the total cups of food needed for the meal by adding up the total amount of cups eaten by each meal guest. For most of our meals eat about a 2 cups/adult if it is going to be the main course for the meal. Maybe 1 cup/person if it's a side dish. In our diet plan we eat two hearty meals a day (breakfast and dinner) with a light snack in the afternoon. 

We have found that when we cook using this total cup method, we don't overeat or have many leftovers.
