There seems to be a lot of talk these days about "clean" food and eating right. Consumers are tired of chemicals being passed off as food. We want real food that makes us feel good and keeps us healthy right?? BUT...it has to taste terrific and I think it should be fun!! Making a meal shouldn't be all about what you HAVE to do for your family or how many calories you are counting. Living a fabulous lifestyle includes eating foods that just simply make you feel satisfied and happy right?
Food Is Just One More Creative Way To Live Life to It's Fullest
I have never been a great cook. I can bake up a storm - sometimes - but I never really knew what I was doing so I kind of stuck to the same old stuff. These days, I have realized that cooking is fun. I don't even need a recipe or a plan and I can bring my kids into it and have a lot of fun!
3 Ways to Make Food Fun Again
I remember when I was a kid, I loved food and enjoyed easting all of my favorite things. As an adult, it can be easy to make food our enemy instead of the pleasurable necessity it should be. I want you to get excited about food again and stop thinking of it as our enemy.
- Fix Your Favorite Foods from Childhood - Whether it was your mom's fabulous goulash or that amazing chocolate cake from the little shop that closed long ago, it is time to recreate and share those glorious and delicious memories with healthy organic ingredients.
- Take One Day a Week or More to Just Enjoy Your Food and Eat What You Like - I take each weekend as my time to stop counting calories and just eat what I enjoy. It is very satisfying and frankly fun to look forward to the weekends when I know my taste buds will be treated to almost anything they desire.
- Make Food Shopping a Joy not a Chore! - Part of making food fun again means dealing with the not so fun food shopping chore. I do most of my shopping online at the Green PolkaDot Box and it is inexpensive, guaranteed nonGMO (no genetically modified organisms) and I can do it at any time of day or night. I love it so much I am a Founding Trust Member! I have found tons of great (and yes healthy) finds I would never have had the time to uncover if I was shopping on a time crunch in a place like Whole Foods with my kids!
