Welcome to Glamorous Bite with a Free eCookbook

Free eCookbook Recipe eBookHope you had a wonderful July. As you may have noticed (or not) we have been missing from the blog world this whole month and also changed our name from Wine Dine Daily to Glamorous Bite. Why Glamorous Bite? Because we are very excited to bring you more healthy recipes with the occasional indulgence that will make you feel more healthy and glamorous!

Everybody is talking about food these days and regimes like Paleo, Vegan, Raw Food, and Gluten-Free, which are beneficial for those with special diet needs. And then there are the fads like Cabbage Soup Diet, Cookie Diet, and South Beach Diet that come and go, but instead of chasing trends we focus on every day healthy and natural eating and what makes our bodies feel better.

Our July started with a family emergency and we decided to go to Europe (yes in the middle of the busiest travel season) to be with Judit’s elderly parents (Corina’s grandparents) that needed our help. Everything is fine now and we will be posting about our adventures soon. During the three weeks we were traveling, we had 10 takeoffs/landings on 9 planes with 7 delays, 1 missed flight, 1 missing suitcase (it was somewhere between Budapest, Berlin, and Oslo for three days). Besides that it was a wonderful trip filled with good memories, a little beer and lots of gelato.

Free Ebook Glamorous Bite SaladsThis year in the Spring our way of cooking changed due to Judit’s husband being diagnosed with a rare type of diabetes. To help him improve his condition and eat better we did a lot of research and a crash course in nutrition and how certain food affect your body. We examined how we cooked and how we ate and realized the effects of ingredients on our bodies. It doesn’t mean depriving yourself, everything can be enjoyed in moderation or with alternative ingredients, like instead of refined sugar we try to use coconut sugar now and instead of bleached white flour we use whole wheat or almond flour. Small changes can big difference and Judit’s husband has improved immensely and we both lost some weight, even without trying. During our travels we didn’t deprive ourselves of tempting treats, but made sure to balance some of the other meals more.

Hop you will find a few good recipes in our eCookbook to make your summer parties more delicious with your family and friends! Please share it so more people can enjoy.

You two have such amazing ideas and posts that I was really missing you – and I’m so glad you’re back. I’m sorry to hear about Judit’s husband, but I’m so impressed with how you’ve rallied around to support and address what is going on!! Welcome back everyone! Here’s to good health, yes?
