CUhlFood Wellness Corner
This page is here to interactively share facts, tricks, tidbits and research about how you can improve your life by improving your relationship with food.
I am not a nutritionist! I'm just your average adult, so this page has a lot of my own opinions and ideas and is not meant to be an official guide to any type of diet or wellness practices. Always take medical and dietary advice from the internet with a grain of salt and be sure to consult your physician if you're concerned about adding or taking away anything from your diet. Everything I am sharing on this page has worked for me individually, but it may not work for you and is a very general overview of how I personally have been reshaping my perspective of food.
I am in process of building out this page, but here is an outline of all the content in the works. There will be lots of pictures, videos and links to relevant information...
Coming soon stay tuned....
Welcome to the CUhlFood Prep Table! Here we will be featuring articles, ideas, and videos about all the different ways you can prep the food you buy in turn learning how to develop habits that reduce the amount of food waste our households produce.
Ever wondered exactly what is in an apple? Here we will break down what is in unpackaged foods one by one highlighting each attribute of the food we've chosen and then explore ways to use it, how to prep it, best practices when cooking or using it raw, etc. We'll essentially be building a guide for digesting what you put into your body mentally as much as you digest it physically.
Work in progress, please check back soon
CUhlFood was originally built around the idea of highlighting the experiences we have while dining. After the pandemic hit, we have had to readjust our spotlight from focusing on restaurants to reframing our content around food in general. That said, we're opening up our articles from just restaurant reviews to include product reviews as well. Much of our common diseases have sprung up after the industrial age of food where agriculture took over and conditioned us to trust everything that is put in the package as something that will not negatively affect our health, when in fact many of our ailments are packaged directly into our food and advertised as "healthy." This section will review products one by one and discuss everything from the contents in the packaging and how it reacts with our bodies to the design and transparency of the packaging itself. This will be a broad opinion column for product reviews.
In this section we will be taking a very deep dive into the world of supplements. We will be exploring the regulatory practices, company ethics, along with how to use these things and who might truly benefit off of them as well as known dangers and side effects. We will compare supplement brands and ingredients in them and talk to people who have used each kind. This will serve as a guide for people who need specific information about specific supplements in a way that will simply lay out the facts we have been able to gather.
This section will serve as a bridge for linking our relationship with the industrialized food we eat daily with it's natural origins and the innate and distinct relationship we have with the natural world in which both we and the food we eat came from. We will discuss gardening, identifying edibles, covering the way our foods grow and discussing the amount of people involved in its production. We will talk about sustainability in an overly industrialized age and what each of us can do to help reconstruct our links to the natural world.
This is gonna be a super fun space for the kiddos. In such a technologically driven era, kids have been more and more disconnected with what they are consuming and parents have had a harder and harder time adjusting to their little one's "picky" eating habits. This space will be filled with an approach of helpful guides, articles, links, and life hacks surrounding food while discussing best practices for eating habits and teaching kids about cooking and working with food. It will incorporate gardening, learning our way around the kitchen, mom tricks and dad tricks, and explore food safety from a young lens.
"I am extremely excited about this new direction for CUhlFood and building out this Wellness Corner will have a wonderful impact on the way we look at food and all the glorious things this planet has gifted us to nourish our bodies. Thanks for being here and please come back soon!"
