I’m excited to announce that Alley’s Plush Peach Salad is one of the first personalized real food recipe dishes I’ve ever made!
As many of you may know, I run a Facebook community called Code to Wellness: Feeling Damn Good in Your Own Skin. Around the time of my birthday, I ran a few different giveaways in the group and one of them was entering a raffle for to win a personalized real food recipe designed just for you! I selected two winners at random and Alley was one of them.
We hopped on the phone and chatted about her favorite ingredients, her favorite dishes, her health goals, desired texture & mouth feel, and the experience she craved for in this new dish. I took notes like a madwoman as she shared her love for all sorts of fruits, veggies and proteins (avocado, peach, seafood), ethnic foods (Japanese, Thai, Indian), and creamy textures (especially in the form of soups and sauces). She also shared with me that she wanted a luxurious meal, that was filling yet weight-loss + health promoting – a combination between instant gratification (the kind we all desire from a bite of a favorite dish), true satiety, digestive peace and zero desire to “beat herself up” afterward.
