Recipes in Recovery: Steak Chimichurri
At The Foundry Treatment Center Steamboat, a healthy lifestyle is an important part of complete recovery. The link between the body and the mind is powerful, and a healthy diet combined with regular exercise is an integral component of lasting recovery from Substance Use Disorder.
There is a common misconception that healthy food is bland and without flavor or excitement. Our goal is to shift how our clients define "healthy food" and shift their lifestyles towards sustainable nutrition. Serving bland, flavorless food would only set the stage for old eating habits and patterns to return down the line.
