Welcome to Beyond The Peel! This site is devoted to delicious, real food that is uncompromising in flavor! 

Beyond The Peel was started because of a life changing transformation I had through whole foods. Since I’ve seen the impact of following a whole food diet (for the most part…I’m not perfect!), I’m excited to help you do the same!

At Beyond The Peel you’ll find recipes, stories, articles, and through video at Beyond The Peel TV, all geared toward helping you make amazing whole foods part of your life. If you’re already cooking with whole foods, I look forward to providing inspiration, tips, education and exciting new recipes.

What is Whole Food?

Whole food is just a fancy way of saying food that is real, unprocessed and in it’s natural state. Sadly, a large majority of the foods offered to us at the grocery store and restaurants are highly processed, nutrient deficient, and just plain bad for us. These are not the kinds of foods that our bodies were designed to eat.

Here you’ll find recipes and information to support a real food lifestyle – one that is free of processed foods and full of natural ingredients that taste amazing and keep you healthy, vibrant and strong.

Just a sample of the colorful and delicious whole food meals we’ll be sharing with you.
