Thanks for visiting my blog! If you’re new here the best place to get some info and what this blog is all about is here, my first post from February, 2012.
I am a 36-year old single woman living in Los Angeles who has decided that enough is enough and am embarking an a true effort to make better food and lifestyle decisions for myself. My main goals are to get off all of my medications, to eradicate or, at the very least, greatly reduce my migraines (both their frequency and intensity) and to simply feel better. A bit abstract, yes, but I know I’ll know when I feel it. This blog is to both record the journey and to keep me motivated to stay engaged.
I’d love to hear from my readers. Tell me if you suffer from migraines and how you deal with them, how you manage a whole-food diet in a processed-food world and feel free to ask me any questions.
Hope to hear from you!
Recipe Method Disclaimer:
I am really good at following recipes created by other people. I’m even better at not following recipes created by other people. But when it comes to writing a recipe, I’m woefully inept. When I’m in my kitchen throwing things together I never measure anything. Sometimes I’ll know I added a tablespoon of butter but only because of that little mark they put on the butter wrapper. And, what’s more, I encourage this type of cooking for you in your kitchen. It inspires and requires more creativity both of which are needed for learning how to cook better and for learning to use what you have on hand rather than going out and buying new ingredients for one recipe that you may never use again. Sure, sometimes you’ll have a complete disaster but so what? And, sometimes, even a complete disaster can be saved. For example, a few months ago I cooked a crock of baked beans and put in WAY too much salt. So I simply used them in a chili and didn’t add anymore salt. That was amazing.
I plan on posting lots of recipes on this site but I do not plan on “writing” lots of recipes…so please follow along as un-closely as possible and be sure to let me know how you’ve tweaked and changed things to make them even better because, like I said, I am really good at following recipes created by other people!
