Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my blog! I’ve wanted to write a blog for quite some time but never got around to it until now. I’ve wanted to write a blog for several reasons such as documenting memorable events, having a place to jot down my thoughts, and to share my Real Food journey (I have lots of yummy, nourishing recipes!).

My first exposure into the Real Food movement was by randomly running across a post from The Healthy Home Economist blog back in 2012. I don’t recall what the post was about but it was interesting enough that I bookmarked  it. I didn’t go back to the THHE until months later and at that point something just clicked and I became more interested in the things Sara blogged about. I started reading more and more of her content and noticed she kept referring to the book, Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon Morell , so I added it to my Amazon wishlist…. and there it sat for several weeks, if not months. Finally one day I decided to just go to Barnes & Noble to pick it up. I started pouring over it and everything about how I ate and what I considered healthy has never been the same. It was pretty shocking and eye opening. I started slowly making changes that year and set a New Year resolution for 2013 to start learning and incorporating more Real Food dishes and techniques into my life. Living a Real Food lifestyle was overwhelming at first but the more I practiced the easier and more routine it became. I enjoyed cooking before discovering Real Foods but now cooking is something that I absolutely love and look forward to.

Here I am almost 11 months later and I still have so much more to learn and implement. As I write this post, I can smell yummy and nourishing chicken bone broth that’s been simmering for 2 days.  I remind myself that I haven’t purchased store-bought broth since January so I must be doing pretty well already 🙂

PS. Today just happens to be my 29th birthday. Happy birthday to me and to my little blog 🙂
