“The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison”
Welcome to The Honour System!
My name is Sharon and welcome to The Honour System!
What does this name mean exactly?
Let me explain.
An Honour System is how you act when rules are not enforced. It’s the ultimate in truth and honesty because the only person you are accountable to is yourself. No one is checking up on you to make sure you are doing the right thing. It’s totally up to you. You either benefit greatly or pay a price with your health.
My philosophy to eating (and life, really!) is similar to an Honour System.
Here’s a bit of my history:
I haven’t always cared about my health & nutrition.
My diet consisted of a TON of chemical laden, processed foods.
I was a serious pack a day smoker.
Something in me clicked when I finally quit smoking and became much more cautious about what I put in my body. I started reading labels and actually thinking about the ingredients in my meals and snacks.
By spending endless hours looking through pages of healthy recipes, I learned how to prepare my own meals and began to focus on the quality of my ingredients instead of how many calories or fat grams something contained. Tinkering with old favourites and ‘healthifying’ them has developed into this website which showcases my love for homemade food.
So be good to your body. I like to say:
“Treat yourself, but don’t cheat yourself”
On the pages of this website you will find variety.
I’m not a vegan nor do I suffer from food allergies, yet I enjoy many meatless meals and naturally gluten free foods. I like to mix things up with my eating and the only ‘rule’ I follow is that whatever I eat is real food. If there is something I can’t pronounce on a label, chances are I don’t want in my belly! For the majority of my diet I try to eat as naturally and organic as possible and am able to do so without feeling deprived.
My goal is to be a go-to resource for delicious food, that just so happens to be good for you. I enjoy eating well. Take some time to browse and you’ll see exactly how well. 😉
I publish this website from beautiful Vancouver, Canada.
This is why you’ll see a “u” in colour, flavour and … honour.
