There always has to be a first in order to begin. Not only is this the first post to this blog, it's the first blog I've ever created (aside from the provided myspace blog).
What do I hope to do? I was complaining to my husband this morning, while building the weekly menu, that I have a hard time finding good, healthy vegetarian recipes with basic nutrition information that falls into the expected American food pyramid for food consumption. We subscribe to Cooking Light as a gift from my parents, but 95% of the recipes are NOT vegetarian, and the ones that are vegetarian always seem to consist of the same recipes....pasta, cheese, pizza, stir-fry's.... Much of the time, the recipes include a lot of mushrooms and onions, things we try to avoid when following a somewhat Ayurvedic diet. So, I hope to accumulate a base of recipes that are Vegetarian/Pescetarian in nature, that are healthy, healing, and make one feel good! My husband suggested that I start a magazine...and this seems to be the second best thing!
In addition to the above, I hope that this blog helps me cultivate my creativity and helps me move away from recipes and towards my own palate for what tastes heavenly. I hope that people read it, that it is useful to those reading, and that those reading will help me out by posting their comments.
Thanks and talk to you soon!
