I just can believe it has been 4 years since I have had a love affair with Cooking and my Kitchen….
I will never forget the day when I actually stopped in the food market, read a label on a 100 calorie snack pack, and realized that I was feeding myself and my family poison.
Why is it that we can not even pronounce some of the ingredients that we are actually ingesting?
Did you know that margarine can sit out in your garage for years and not mold?
Margarine along with many other foods are made with processed chemicals such as hydrogenated oils which is one of the leading causes of disease.
Food that is grown fresh affects us differently than food thats been sitting out for days or even weeks.
Think about a fresh loaf of bread compared to commercial processed loaf of bread.
Which molds quicker?
The fresh loaf, as it is prepared with fresh ingredients. Processed foods allows food for longer shelf life.
My motto is,
“IF IT MOLDS, IT IS SOMETHING YOU WANT TO PUT INTO YOUR BODY, IF IT DOES NOT MOLD, STAY AWAY.”
With that said, I made a commitment to feeding myself and family SIMPLE CLEAN AND WHOLE FOODS.
Yes, it may take a bit longer to prepare, but the taste and the love you will be feeding your body is far greater than the price your health will pay in the long run.
Why am I feeling the love?
I believe that food prepared at home by a loving person has a different nutritional effect than the exact same food prepared in a restaurant.
When we feed our family, there’s love in the food and care in its preparation, which creates a higher quality of LOVE and ENERGY.
Believe me when I tell you that Fresh Foods paired with Cooking intimidated me!
These are a few steps to get yourself started…..
1. Give yourself permission to create Simple dishes without having the expectation of them coming out perfect.
2. Don’t take yourself so seriously!!!!
3. HAVE FUN!!!!!!!
Use your kitchen as a place to empower, gain confidence and re invent yourself!!!!!!
The gift that you will give yourself and your loved ones when they walk into their home, and smell your home cooking will be PRICELESS!
