Hello to all and welcome to my attempt at blogging!
For those of you who don't know me (or much about me), I am an approaching 30 yr old, stay-at-home mom with 2 adorable girls (and another 1 on the way!) My love affair for cooking, baking and anything food related (besides doing the dishes afterwards!), has taken a journey to the healthy side. When my first daughter, Sofia, was born, I knew that I wanted to do everything within my power to raise her with an appreciation for healthy food, so she wouldn't have the love-hate relationship (and its effects...aka weight gain) with food that I've had! After doing a bunch of research over the course of a year, I arrived at the conclusion that the best way for me to keep my family healthy is to feed them a primarily vegan diet. (I say "primarily" because if you adhere to the strictest of rules in the vegan realm, you are really limited to what you can use...and since my desire is for health, and not due to my love of animals (not an animal hater, just to clear that up), my interpretation is to leave out all animal-based products in my cooking/baking). However, judgment is not passed from me to you for the way that you're choosing to eat...I'm pretty laid-back, and pretty accepting, so read this with an open mind, because you're here for some reason!
I've never blogged before, but my goal in this is to help give people easy to follow, very understandable recipes, so that your families will be able to appreciate healthy food for what it can be, and not the tasteless plate of raw vegetables that most (husbands) are picturing! My OTHER goal is maybe a tad selfish...you see, I have a lot of people requesting my healthy recipes lately, and rather than typing them out for each of those individuals, I am hoping to "blanket recipe" people, in an effort to save time! (Don't judge me!)
So that's it...that's why I'm doing this: I'm very passionate about raising healthy families, AND I don't have the time (or energy) to reply to EVERY recipe request sent my way! Take that for what it's worth, and again, welcome!
