Here are her thoughts on food:
“The food philosophy that seems right to me: Keep it real. Keep it unrefined. Try for organic as much as possible, and in terms of diet, I’m a big believer in eating what’s right for you. Just listen to your body. There’s no one right way, except the natural, real food way. If you are desperate to label me, call me paleo-ish but NOTHING and I mean NOTHING will make me part with butter, sour cream or a good piece of raw milk cheese when in France. Just saying. If you’re looking for a rigid purist, you haven’t found one. I might even enjoy rice from time to time or a bit of gluten free pasta or popcorn. Traditional foods & food as medicine are fascinating to me.”
You are a warrior Alexx – and a super talented cook!
