So it has been a WHILE! I suppose a new baby will do that to you.
While our Savannah isn’t a baby anymore, she is still quite a handful. Her 2nd birthday was this past Friday and I have been wanting to get back to blogging about stuff I cook and things I make.
It was really last Saturday night when I was home and Wes was at a motorcycle race when I watched ‘Hungry For Change’ on Netflix and was inspired to eat better and come up with good recipes that DO NOT have preservatives and all that crap and the 50 names for MSG. This documentary was JUST what I needed, as I have been feeling down on myself, lethargic, and overwhelmed with work, my commute, my husband working full time AND attending school FT, being a mom, and trying to hold it all together. The time for exercise is limited and eating right is my saving grace right now.
I have been eating ‘clean’ for just over a week and I feel amazing and inspired to find new things to make and try. It makes SO MUCH SENSE. We need to eat what grows more natural, meat that is raised without preservatives and additives, food that doesn’t sit on a shelf and doesn’t have a shelf life of 3 years at a time.
So I have starting cooking lots of great things and will be adding lots of great recipes that I have found, tweaked, made easier, and loved so far.
I still plan on making some of the things l love, the shrimp and grits, the gumbo…but making these things ‘better’ and cleaner than before…mixing it up!
Thanks for reading and I hope to put some good stuff out here tomorrow – have to organize photos from my phone on this newer computer we have, as everything ‘blog related’ is on our old computer with the crapped out screen.
