Anyone who knows me, knows that I have always been interested in food. Interested may not be the best way to describe the relationship; love, adore, obsess over might be a little closer to the truth. My boyfriend enjoys telling people that one of my favourite hobbies is reading restaurant menus, just for the fun of it.
Because of my love of food, I have quite often gotten into bad habits of eating a lot of junk that tastes ‘good’ but makes me feel bad.
It’s only recently that I have been putting some time into researching and learning about food’s relationship with our bodies. I have been fascinated and shocked at the effects that food can have on our health and wellbeing, so I decided to make some changes.
It makes sense, when you think about it. Food is the fuel that our bodies need to work properly, so why don’t we put in the fuel that’s going to make us the best versions of ourselves?
The answer is, simply, that we’re all big suckers for pleasure, and if food isn’t appealing to us then we just don’t want it.
That leads me to this blog, I want to give my body the best, I want to feel the best and look the best that I can, but I don’t want to mourn my love of food and munch on tasteless greens for the rest of my life. Here begins my search for the best food for both flavour and health.
As well as recipes, I’ll be posting some of the things I’ve discovered about the way that certain foods that we are addicted to can effect our health.
I’m on a mission to find the tastiest recipes minus the junk, and I want to share them with you, too.
