In August 2012 I joined Sparkpeople; overweight and bordering on obese, out of shape, depressed and cooking anything that was premade for me. My idea of cooking from scratch was wrapping up some pasta sauce, shredded cheese, canned pineapple and mushrooms, ham lunchmeat in a Pillsbury Cressant Roll.... mmmmm pizza.
It's been a little over a year now and I got my butt in gear. I lost 45 lbs, got fit and have tried hundreds of recipes, even creating a few of my own. Cooking has become one of my passions and I love playing artiste in the kitchen. Anything premade has become utterly unappealing. I cook from scratch and anything less won't do.
I went from the Pauper of frozen entrees to the Spinderella of cuisine design. I love searching and collecting recipes online and using them as inspiration to create my own unique dishes.
You won't find nutrition perfection here. I aim to eat healthy but enjoy all things in moderation. There are simply no foods that are off limits in my text.
