How exciting that you're here!
This blog has been a labour of love for 7.5 years but it is now time to change course and take things in a new direction. Actually, it's not really so new because if you've been reading along for awhile you will know as a family we have made some big (but simple) changes to the way we eat.
A few months ago I ran a survey asking readers why they are here, what they like and what they want to see more of. Thank you to all those wonderful people who replied, you made my day! The top 3 things you want to see more of are:
- switching the family to whole foods
- healthy food on a budget
- meal planning
I hear you.
Those are exactly my issues on a daily basis and I think together we can take some amazing steps this year!
To make sure you don't miss a recipe please update your RSS feeds!
This will still be predominantly a recipe blog. It's what I love. But I will also be sharing my tips and tricks on switching to, planning and shopping for whole foods.
I also really love making-over recipes. Like finding an amazing looking dessert in a magazine that is full of things we don't eat, and figuring out how to make it in a more whole foods way. So if you have a favourite recipe that you wish was a little (or a lot) healthier, send me an email and I will see if I can make it over for you. Same thing if you find a recipe from my archives that you would like to see made healthier or dairy free or whatever. Let me know.
So to answer your question, no I won't be removing any recipes from my archives. Even the ones full of white flour, white sugar or packaged foods. I love being to look back on what we were doing years ago, get nostalgic over how little and cute the kids were and honestly, get inspiration for dinner sometimes!
So in essence we have a new look and a new direction for the New Year.
I think it's going to be fun!
