It's been awhile since I've posted and to be honest I've just gotten so caught up in what I think I should be doing, or creating, or posting that I just got too scared to post anything at all. But I have been reminded why I started this little blog of mine to begin with and that's because I love food and believe in the power of it to completely transform how you feel and your health.
But I have realised that not being able to post every other day doesn't make that any less true. The truth is, like everyone, life gets in the way. So I thought it important to share a couple things about me and this blog.
1) all the photos you see here I take. This photo is a photo of my shop from my local fruit store and is the basis of what I plan to cook this week. The table it's on is my actual coffee table and the plates, knives, etc are just what we use in my house to eat with. The vegetables aren't organic, they aren't from a farmer's market, and as much as I love those things my day to day reality doesn't always make that possible. But do I think this produce looks any less amazing or nutritious? Definitely not, and I'm really passionate about showing you how.
2) I do my weekly shop on a Sunday because I work full-time. This is the day when I get the chance to take my time walking through a shop and is my favourite part of the week. Sometimes I am swayed by beautiful seasonal fruit and veggies that are an amazing price because unlike sale jeans, they always make you feel good.
3) I cook on the weekend and that's when a lot of the photos of food that I share are taken. On the days I'm in the office it takes me two hours to get to work, so in the dead of winter there is no daylight when I come home. If you follow me, I'm actually going to start sharing that via my stories - I can't promise it will be insta worthy but I hope it'll give you some insight into how you can make food your medicine. How would I know? I'm studying nutritional medicine so on top of the full-time job I'm juggling study and assignments.
If nothing else, I hope you can take something away from my blog because I'm not just doing it for the gram, I really want to help and share the power of food 👍🍋
