So, sorry about the vulgar title. A lot of blog names were taken, this one wasn't. So it's mine, for better or worse.
Anyhow, I'm a guy that loves to cook. After quitting smoking a few months back, I gradually gained weight, felt like crap, and decided to get back on track through diet and exercise. I run a mile and a half every morning, spend some time doing crunches, and what not, but that's not why you're reading this, huh? You wanna know about the food.
I'm a big believer that you should cook your own meals, limit the amount of processed, prepackaged, instant, or whatever food you intake and eat fresh ingredients whenever and wherever possible. Save your fast food and pizza intake for the times when you just don't have a choice. Those days happen due tio circumstances beyond your control and you just need food in your system, but leave that food to those days only.
If you go food nazi and deny yourself everything you love and eat rice cakes and bean sprouts, you're not gonna enjoy it and you're not gonna stick to it. You can eat healthy without giving up flavor or taste. Just find the shortcuts you can live with, give up the things you know you can do without, splurge in moderation, and find new things to cook that you actually like. Hopefully, this is one way to find somethings you like to make. Otherwise, you're gonna binge on whatever you've been denying yourself once you hit the magic number and gain it all back. Just know yourself, know your habits, what you can improve, and what you can get rid of.
I'll post some recipes, some tips, and whatnot and hopefully, you'll find something you will like in the days ahead...
