For anyone looking to upgrade food choices and eating habits in the home, Chef Aran Goldstein is your man!
Aran begins by talking about what he’s been up to this past year, creating the Farm to Table and Nose to Tail School Lunch Program in Austin, Texas. He describes it as the most rewarding work of his life.
Aran says he’s just trying to show up and make the highest “vibing” foods possible for the kids, staff and community at the school.
When it comes to deciding what to eat & resetting our food choices, Aran says people can ask themselves this important question: what kinds of foods do I deserve? He strives to get food and nutrition right first.
For Aran, the food part of his life is non-negotiable: “and so, I organize my life to accomplish this first. Everything comes after this. Everything.”
Aran explains that when you know exactly what you will and won’t eat and are clear about your line in the sand, it simplifies your choices. It’s worth the extra effort to spend time in the kitchen preparing the most nutrient dense foods possible.
