This little blog is finally seeing the light. My husband has been bugging me for years to write down my recipes. You see, I can’t seem to follow one without changing at least one thing. So, I give up. I’m going to write things down.
About me… I live in Colorado with my wonderful husband and darling 7-yr-old son. We moved from Virginia last year to be closer to family and get away from the hectic East Coast. We love it here. I work full time and need to get healthy dinners on the table quickly at the end of a busy day. Many days, dinner is on the table just before we zip off to karate or swimming or whatever else we have planned.
So here’s the thing… I love to cook but just don’t have time during the week. I’ve just discovered Wildtree spices. And I’m a devoted Ideal Protein diet believer in the process of losing 20lbs. I dabble with once a month cooking. I don’t claim to know everything. I’m not officially a nutritionist or dietician. I don’t pretend to be one. I do eat gluten free and I learned at the end of last year that I’m allergic to eggs. I didn’t have symptoms per se, but I feel so much better now that they’re out of my diet completely. I guess I never realized how many gluten-free products have eggs in them. The intersection of those two things has proven to be detrimental to my food choices. It’s almost a blessing in disguise, though, because it really does cut down on the variety of junk that I can eat. I do love dairy, so you’ll see dairy in some (but not all) of my recipes.
I will figure out this wordpress thing as I get going, I guess, but my plan is to label things so that everyone can filter and find recipes that work for them.
Welcome to my adventure… I hope you enjoy reading (and hopefully trying!) some of my recipes and learning how I make healthy, organic meals with the help of Wildtree, some simple planning ahead, and a tiny bit of free time.
