So, it's been (almost) one week and I feel really good. It could be the fact that I took time away from the internet or that I spent time with a friend, but I think a lot of it is food. I have been told a few times "eat to live, don't live to eat", but I'm learning there has to be some sort of medium. If there weren't, I would never have had this delicious black bean chipotle burger this past weekend. And gosh-dangit if that wasn't one of the best things I've ever tasted. 

Plus, after relaxing about what I ate, I actually lost some weight! 

So, I'm trying to figure out exactly what I want to do with this diet. I want limits, but to not overdo it. 

And finds this week (if anyone wants to know): they weren't kidding when they said broccoli helps your hair grow, Grocery Outlet Bargain Market isn't just for junk food, being happier helps with (at least my) physical health. 

I hope everybody had a great week and want to thank everybody who left nice comments last week!

Off to recreate that burger.

I feel like I am constantly on this 'diet' rollercoaster. I try to eat healthy, drink lots of water and eat the bad stuff in moderation. It's a constant battle but it can be done. Good luck!

About Me
I'm a teacher. I teach piano to kids and am getting my degree to be a preschool teacher. I spend most of my time working, cooking, playing with my dogs, with my friends or playing the ukulele
My favorite things to cook
I believe in healthifying recipes. I've tried diets and have finally realized that just doesn't work for me. I've got to be able to have what I love, just with a twist.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great grandma used to cook for people who needed food during the great depression. She passed on the tradition of sharing food. Food can be used for good.
My cooking triumphs
I have made vegan recipes that even my sister enjoys. That's a huge triumph.
My cooking tragedies
I am forgetful. There have been many tragedies due to this.
