Hello, I've recently started my journey and have found one of the biggest changes I've made other than intentional movement has been the change in what I'm eating. I hope by joining this group to expand my knowledge of food and find a few friends along the way.
Growing up I was never taught about food, I come from a plus sized family and healthy or nutrition was never discussed. The focus was always treats and flavors and reasons to eat unhealthy or processed foods.
I don't want this for myself, I love fresh foods and honestly think if I had more knowledge of how they help my body and how to prepare them I would do perfectly fine eating whole healthy foods.
Looking forward to personal growth and better health!!

A goal without a plan is just...a wish.

Good morning all! Would love to join the group as being diagnosed with Celiacs has given me a new need to eat clean unprocessed food.I have been pointed in the direction of a paleo diet by my Dr. So fresh fruits, veggies and grilled meats need to be my direction.Looking forward to meeting you all!

When I have to cook for our gang, I tend toward "put together your own" style meals, like taco salads, or sub sandwiches. I just lay out the fixings and I can control what goes on mine while no one else feels deprived.
Hi, my name is Kathy. I have been struggling with weight-loss partially because it is so overwhelming and partially because it is hard to find a meal plan that works for my large family, and my desire to avoid processed foods. I also don't want to give up an entire food group (grains, dairy...) except JUNK.
I have 5 children still at home, so I cook big, but simple (not boring though). Can someone point me in the right direction?
