Well, I spoke too soon. There was no sign of spring today. It was as cold as could be, with drizzly rain, hail, and everything in between! I still got in two walks with Noah, and I actually felt like running a good part of the way on both of them. Hoping for a weight loss tomorrow when I see Vicky. I have some thoughts on weight loss (or the lack of it) and will probably write about that tomorrow.
Today I just wanted to highlight a new blog that is definitely worth a look-see. The author is a young woman with a love of food, but she seems very talented at actually making food that is delicious and healthy–in fact, that is the name of her blog: Health Foodie. There are critiques of the recipes by her non-foodie husband, who enjoys the food in spite of himself. The pictures are gorgeous, and I want to try all the recipes. In addition, she has some very well-written and well-thought out articles scattered among the recipes. There is one about ‘good food vs. bad food’ that is excellent. The recipes have interesting facts, and all of the ones I have looked at have the nutritionals listed.
I look at a lot of blogs, but I can’t keep up with most of them. And if they have too many high calorie foods, or too much junk food talk, I just can’t go there every day. This blog I want to go to every day, and if I have enough time, I will be trying out a lot of her recipes. Roasted leek and garlic asparagus, spicy sweet potato fries, mango salad dressing (at 13 calories/Tbsp!) and Healthy Chocolate Truffles (35 calories each) are all on my list.
Welcome to the blog world, Christina. I hope you have lots more recipes. We are hungry people, and we love food!
