Let’s wander into the land of “Food, Glorious Food”(name that musical!).
Try something new!
I grew up with very little to no restriction on what I ate or when I ate it. Being part of such a huge family made it nearly impossible for us to have an actual sit-down-dinner, even on a semi-regular basis. Dad was working late into the evening, and Mom was usually driving multiple kids to and from baseball practices, piano lessons, basketball games, riding lessons, pitching lessons, and whatever else any of the 8 children were involved in. So, since Mom was often gone during dinnertime, we fended for ourselves. For a child this was delight- top ramen, cereal, mac ‘n cheese, mint chocolate chip ice cream, and whatever sounded yummy for dinner. Needless to say, I was not the healthiest child and struggled with being overweight for some time. I had also developed an unhealthy perspective of food; food meant fun. Beach, baseball games, Disneyland, you name it- the fun was in the food (bad food), and events weren’t enjoyable without it. It wasn’t until I went to college and lived on my own that I began to take control of my health and the way I viewed food. And it wasn’t until I became vegetarian that I finally began to understand my health and enjoy food that was not only delicious, but also nutritious! I now eat a vegan diet mostly comprised of raw fruits and vegetables.
Here are my promises:
I only post food that is absolutely delicious. Not just good, but delicious!
I post food that fosters the welfare of animals, meaning that all recipes are vegan.
I post recipes that are rather simple- I don’t have much time to cook, and I doubt you do either.
I try to alter every recipe I come up with or follow so that my final recipes are a healthy(er) alternative.
