This page is dedicated to the purpose of this blog.
Let’s first discuss the main goal of the blog:
The main goal is for reader’s to feel empowered to take control of their own health. This blog is a safe space to ask any questions that you are hoping to have answered. Feel free to send me an email using the contact page if there are certain topics you would like me to discuss, or would like more information on. I want you to be comfortable taking steps to prevent, manage and/or treat health conditions with diet, exercise, medical compliance, etc.
I plan on giving you tips, tricks, things to consider, info, and lots of yummy recipes to show you that you don’t need a lot of time, effort, or resources to either get, or keep your health on track. The blog will also (hopefully) give you a good dose of humor relating to my crazy, daily life.
Remember, treating disease is good, but preventing it in the first place is better. The best way to accomplish this, I feel, is to give you the insight and power you need to be successful. So I implore you to take up this challenge and please don’t hesitate to use me as a resource.
For medical readers out there, I will be here whenever you need someone to commiserate , or feel free to contribute in the comments in your area of expertise! For empowered readers, I will be here whenever you need a sympathetic ear, or to run questions by. Feel free to share your stories! I love to read them and hear from you!
Let’s now talk a bit about my cooking style:
-For the most part, I try to use only whole and clean ingredients. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard, “Oh it’s too hard to cook, or it takes too long etc” and I love sharing some and easy tips to get people started. I’d love for people to cut down on relying on processed, packaged food and learn how easy, quick and delicious cooking your own food can be. Eating real food can do wonders for your health as well. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
-I am cooking for one here so many of my recipes are made as a single serving unless I’m doing bulk freezer meals that I can grab and take to work for lunch. If you need more servings, just use the serving tab under the ingredients section to adjust for the number of servings you want. The ingredient amounts will automatically adjust to whatever serving number you put.
-I tend to just throw things together. A dash here, a handful there and don’t often use real measurements. I will do my best at trying to come up with approximations for you to follow. My goal, though, is for you to eventually feel comfortable enough with cooking that you can just “throw” things together too with a little bit of inspiration.
-I tend to have a lot of things stored that I have already pre-cooked and stored in my freezer for easy meal prep later. I’ll show you in different posts how and what I tend to store to make throwing a meal together super quick.
-I know people have different needs when it comes to their diet. For example, what a diabetic needs to primarily pay attention to is different than what a person with lactose intolerance needs to primarily worry about, for example. These tips and recipes are also great for people who don’t have any medical problems and are looking for ways to keep on track!
-Since most of my recipes are just thrown together, they also come with a lot of customization. I’ll try to give plenty of options, but if you need something specifically, don’t hesitate to ask and we can find something that works for you. My goal is for you to have a really good understanding of your personal dietary needs (if you have or need any) so that you can take recipes and modify them with confidence.
