I know what you’re asking yourself. Creamy Baked Parmesan Chicken? How can that be healthy? This is a so-called ‘healthy’ website, right?

I’ll let you in on a little secret. You can eat SO many delicious things. The only rules you need to follow are the ones you set yourself. It’s my whole philosophy with the Honour System.  Living in a world of green smoothies and oatmeal 100% of the time is not realistic for me or for my household. We enjoy things like cheese, mayo, meat, potatoes, eggs, bread, you name it. I do source out the organic and non GMO varieties of all these things or, as in the case of the mayo, make it myself.

With anything that you intend to succeed at long term, it HAS to be something you enjoy. Why expect anything less with your diet and lifestyle? Yes, you have to eat your veggies, drink the water, get exercise and rest. But you also have to taste, savour and relish.

So indulge your sweet tooth. Just make it something like this Chocolate Hazelnut Torte.

Or is it creamy, cheesy deliciousness you’re after?

If that’s the case you came to the right spot. There is nothing BUT that here. 🙂

This baked chicken dish was also a huge hit with the man of the house, and I think that kids would like it too. Anything bubbling with smothered cheese brings smiles to faces young and old. 😉

I love your food philosophy and that's why I follow your blog - I totally agree that a healthy diet can definitely include all those foods, and in fact it SHOULD. It makes me sad to see people equating healthy diets with restrictive diets.

Agreed! There is such a misconception that a well rounded diet should be punishing. Love your food! :)
