My low point in food happened about three years ago while still at college in Indiana. I always liked eating, but I never put too much thought into what my food was actually made of or where it came from. One night as I was unwrapping some frozen Salisbury steaks from Kroger I noticed they had “grill” marks on them. Not even real grill marks. “This is bad. Really bad,” I thought.
Ever since then I started learning to cook for myself. My diet wasn’t vastly improved, but it was better. I read Michael Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food, and that really got me started on questioning what I eat and where it comes from.
I now truly believe in eating real food. I also believe food should be fun. So many family gatherings, holidays or life events are either based around food or food plays an integral part, so why not have a bit of fun with it?
Ever since I stopped eating processed junk and started focusing on real, healthy food I’ve felt so much better and have had so much more fun in the kitchen. That’s why I started this blog – to share some of the recipes I’ve come up with or recipes I’ve found that deserve to be passed on. Click here for a longer post about my philosophy on food.
