The idea truly came like a light bulb over head in the middle of a conversation. I was enjoying some final time with Amy, and she mentioned the upcoming challenge of good food ideas while moving to Lubbuck, Texas. At first I blurted out, "I will send you recipes as I prepare them for Paul (my husband)" Then the light bulb burst: "I am going to create a blog and send out the weekly meals I prep, pics, and ideas to share what I do and just how easy it is."
After she cheered wildly, ok maybe a little exaggeration, she said, "I can't wait to eat healthy." Now, granted, she already eats healthy, but the point is that she was fearing getting in a rut. The idea of seeing someone else's weekly meals open the door to new ideas.
My conversation with her is not a new one. It just came at the perfect time, Dec. 31st. I was in need of a resolution and sharing healthy meals for the year seemed like a great one.
I am like so many others: up before 5; get a workout in; work a full day; get another workout in if I am lucky...and somewhere in the mix: go to the grocery; do yet another load of laundry (how much workout clothing can one man actually wear); oh yeah, and in the end prepare healthy meals. It is in this mix that I have a passion. On most weeks, I love creating these healthy meals, and sharing the fruits of my labor.
So here I am...over the next 52 weeks I am going to share the meals I prepare; how I prepared them (think recipes); and pics of the end result (the pics should improve with practice).
Although, I could do this alone I thought it would be more fun to include your creations, too. With this comes an on-going monthly contest. Submit your creations; readers will vote; and winners will receive gift certificates to Whole Foods or a local grocery store!
Let the fun begin!
Highlights from Week 1 will come tomorrow!
