What defines you as a food blogger and why should you be the next food blog star?
|At one of my favourite restaurants, Blue Plate Diner, eating Ranch Eggs.... DROOL!|
I am now a 23 year old Masters of History Student (hopefully for about only a week longer!) My teenage life was spent battling the bulge- some 35 pounds of it. I lost and gained that same weight around 5 times over the course of around 6 years. It was only in my 2nd and 3rd year of university that I lost all the weight for good. This was through dealing with my emotional issues with food, as well as self esteem issues. I got fit, strong, confident and healthy! My relationship with food and fitness has evolved over the years, perhaps most notably when I slowly stopped looking at food as only calories and fuel, but also as an experience to be shared and enjoyed. This past year while working on my Masters, along with developing what I believe to be carpal tunnel, has forced me to relax about food and fitness even more. Shocking news to me, I ate and drank my way through my thesis these post five months and didn't gain *much* weight. (The weight isn't the point, its the perspective and the way I deal and feel about it that matters.)
Anyway... with that ramble... you now know what pushes me, where my view on food comes from (ideally a mixture of health, quality, responsibility and taste all coming together!) Indulgence is a must (no deprivation here!) but a little moderation and lots of intuition to guide me along.
I don't have much background in cooking/baking, I just know what I like and hope that others like it too! Its as simple as that! I like to post recipes of my own and from those that I find. And of course, I love posting about my favorite meals when out to dinner! Expect a little of everything!

I hope you join me on this journey, no matter how it turns out!
Thank you all and much love!
