Who am I?
First, let me know what I am not.
I am not a healthy mom of three. I am not a nutritionist. I am not a personal trainer. I have no ebook. I am not vegan. I do not follow the paleo diet. I do not spend my days talking about healthy food and various gym workouts (although it’s totally cool if you do).
That pretty much sums it up.
Now, it is time to tell you who I am.
I am a student who loves to cook, amongst other things. I’m that girl who cries if her recipe goes wrong. I spend endless hours analyzing cookbooks and food blogs because I am constantly looking for inspiration. I spend way too much time in the kitchen. I guess I just can’t help it: food was my first love! I find great pleasure in cooking, but I find even more pleasure in eating! I won’t hide it: I love to eat and I love to eat a lot. That being said, when I eat a lot of unhealthy things, I feel yucky. Granted, at first, I feel as though I have died and gone to heaven, but once my plate is finished, I find myself rolling out of the room, which is really embarrassing if I’m eating at a restaurant.
I don’t believe that anyone should deprive themselves of anything! You love cookies? Enjoy them when you eat them!
You dream of nachos at night? So do I!
Can’t get enough of those BBQ ribs your mom makes in the summer? Have one for me!
You’re probably thinking: “Ok, this is the worst healthy blog advice EVER”. I would to, but thankfully, I have more to say!
I don’t believe in deprivation, but I do believe in moderation. That’s the secret! You can enjoy all the foods you’ve always loved, but don’t eat them to the point where you can’t move anymore. No one likes that feeling.
With that in mind, I don’t think you should moderately indulge in all your favourite foods on a daily basis; save that for a Friday night out or a Tuesday Treat if you really can’t wait. I created this blog because I want to give all of you readers healthier options to your favourite foods! That’s right! Cookies, popcorn, fried rice and pizza can be healthy! Stick with me long enough and you’ll see that I am right. I understand you skepticism, but wait and see all the goodies I have in store for you!
I am also a food snob. If I don’t enjoy a meal in my day, then that day is ruined forever. Harsh, I know, but hey! we all have our faults.
Before I end this rather long description of my nutritional values, I would like to say that most of these recipes were not thought out on the top of my head. Like all great chefs (not that I am one), I like to get inspired. I do not claim to have invented any of these recipes. I am a silly person who likes to make jokes, nothing else. If I offend you in any way, it was absolutely not intentional. I am writing this for fun, so have fun reading it!
And now, to the kitchen!
