10 By Design Recipes in Under 10 Minutes

One of the foundational requirements of health is an adequate fuel supply…aka food.

The food you eat drives energy production in the body and provides raw materials for cellular repair and growth.

At The Powerhouse, we teach the principles of Eat By Design.

Eat By Design focuses on fueling your body for what your genes expect. The focus is on foods with the greatest nutritional density with the least toxicity.

With that in mind, we’ve prepared a list of 10 easy, By Design recipes you can prepare in under 10 minutes.

For those of who have been through the 30 Day Eat By Design Challenge, you know it can be tough to constantly think of new meal ideas, especially when switching from a primarily processed food or grain-based diet….

…so we want to make the transition as easy as possible for you.

These recipes include breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks…
