"RULES" for recipes

1. A combination of single ingredient foods (ex. carrots, beans, ground wheat, basil) combined to
make the dish is ideal.

2. When adding foods with multiple ingredients, the goal is to find items with
a. Ingredients you recognize and can easily pronounce and explain where they come from!
b. The fewest number of ingredients as possible.

3. Try to use ingredients that are organic and locally grown/raised.

5. Try to use an alternative to refined sugars and flours, if possible. (some alternatives to sugar
include: agave syrup, honey, maple sugar, evaporated cane sugar are all alternatives. For
unrefined flour, grind it yourself or purchase whole wheat flour, etc)
