adopt a blogger
there is someone i would like you all to meet - Cheryl
from Healthy Lessons
. we are participating in Adopt a Blogger
together. Adopt a Blogger
is an awesome project from Kristen
of Dine and Dish
where a veteran blogger (me in this case) adopts a newbie blogger (Cheryl) to help them navigate the blogging world. this is one of the many reasons i feel so lucky to be a food blogger - the community is just incredible!
Healthy Lessons is a common sense approach to healthy living. i was excited to get paired with Heatlhy Lessons because i think presenting healthy living in the way she does is needed and missing. you will not find the latest fad diet, crazy diet aids, or any "get skinny quick" gimmicks on her blog. what you will find is informative posts full of common sense advice.
you will find many delicious recipes there like...
you should also check out her posts where she puts her common sense spin on ...
after getting paired with Healthy Lessons - it caused me to stop and think - am I healthy? what is my take on being healthy? i came up with four main points....
1. moderation - i may bake all the time but you may be surprised to learn we give most of it away to family and friends. i am lucky that i simply cannot eat a lot of the same thing - i get sick of it. i have one or two and i am done.
2. i quit eating just before i feel full - seriously the plates of food they serve in restaurants could feed a person for a week. when i cook at home, i only serve myself what i need. i know that if i am still hungry, i can always get more, but i rarely do. putting less on my place really helps me to stay on target with not overeating.
3. vegetarianism - being vegetarian i believe is one of my biggest commitments to my health. we consume tons of veggies, fruits, beans, pasta, grains, nuts and rice.
4. buy organic and avoid genetically modified food - i have made the commitment to avoid pre-packaged food whenever possible and buy organic as much as i can. i believe that putting good foods in your body is an easy way to be healthy. simple, fresh and local is always the best!
i know there is more i can do. i really need to exercise more, but i am working on it. that is one of the reasons i am glad to know Cheryl - her posts inspire me.
go say hi to Cheryl at Healthy Lessons - read her posts and check out her recipes. you will enjoy her blog.
