I’ve never been a big New Year’s resolution person — dieting for a year or giving up chocolate has never seemed appealing or feasible. However, I do like a fresh start, a chance to de-clutter and reorganize, and an incentive to come up with attainable goals. I have a hard time picturing what I’ll be doing a year from now, but I work better with short-term goals and projects. All this to say, I’m going to try a new, more organized and hopefully more helpful format for the blog over the next month.
The next four weeks I will focus on specific ingredients — how they can boost our health, the best way to pick them out and prepare them, and a couple of recipes highlighting each ingredient. Below is an outline of what you can expect each week:
Day 1: Ingredient Overview & Basic Prep (ingredients & recipes will include grains, beans, produce and dressings/sauces)
Day 2: Recipe #1
Day 3: Recipe #2
I might add another post at the end of the week about something unrelated to the given ingredient – just for fun. 🙂
If you would like to add some healthy ingredients into your cooking repertoire for 2013, or if you’re eager to learn a variety of basic cooking techniques and recipes, I hope you’ll join me!
And now here’s one Christmas picture of my cute nephews in their new aprons preparing some delicious fake food!
Cheers to 2013 and healthy cooking!
