What is health anyway? What is it that we do that makes us healthy? Is it what we eat? How much exercise we get? How energetic we feel? Is it how we handle stress, a 40 hour a week job, our kids, financial issues? For most people, they would answer every question I just posed with “YES, ALL OF THE ABOVE!”
I myself don’t know what the secret is to anything. But in the space of this website, I will tell you that I am trying to create a central location, a kind of “health home” where anyone can visit, without judgment, and discuss health and how they can achieve it.
Most people today focus on food as their first way to health. It is a daunting task. It seems that everything is bad for you unless it’s organic, or non-GMO, pasture-raised, grass-fed... Who can keep up with the latest news on any of this?
I will share personal stories here and that is really all I can vouch for. I can tell you of my own health experiences and how certain foods affect me. Food is extremely personal and no one should tell anyone that a certain food is completely off-limits. Unless you are allergic or have Celiac or a medical condition that does not allow you to have a certain food of course.
There are many different diets out there. From all the books and articles I have read, and from many “diets” I have tried myself, the two things that always go hand in hand are cutting out processed food and sugar. I am going to try and help you figure out how to do that through homemade food. I don’t think it’s a secret that making something in your own kitchen is definitely going to ensure that you know exactly what you’re eating. I will be sharing many shortcuts I have learned to save time and money and most of all - your sanity. We can drive ourselves crazy trying to figure out what to make for dinner alone each day, never mind trying to cut out processed food and sugar from our pantries, cabinets, and refrigerators.
At the end of the day, I really feel it’s about staying grounded and realistic in what’s achievable and affordable for you and your family. There is no harder job than feeding all the members of your household daily. We’ll try to do that together with easy, small goals and a good sense of humor.
