Happy New Year 2014!

I love the end of a year.  It’s time for reflection on what has transpired over the year: the good, the bad, the fun and the ugly.  I sit back and assess what I liked and didn’t.  It’s the only way to change and grow.  This blog is a great example of that…last year I decided I was going to do something that was just for me, something I loved and was passionate about.  Here’s to a New Year filled with aspirations of health, happiness, and most of all an inspiration to try new things!

Hello world!

This blog was really born out of a love I have for food.  All kinds really!  I have experimented with practically everything out there: asian, comfort foods, sweet, savory, raw, vegan, gluten-free (is my latest one to play with).  I try to implement my nutritional knowledge into my meals everyday.  I choose mostly organic (when it’s available), but if it’s not visually appealing I will pick conventional foods.  I buy local, in-season foods and cook accordingly. I’ve been known to cook according to my mood (i.e. PMS brownie’s).  I am a mother of 3 beautiful children and the wife of my best friend!  I am an acupuncturist by trade, so I take seriously the seasons, the time of year, when I will cook a specific food. I hope to inspire you to take the time to make your own foods.  I will put my quick spin, when I can, on certain meals and will also suggest accompaniments when it fits.  About Pics
