Beans are one of those magical foods. They are as old as dirt, cheap as dirt and still a staple ingredient if not the main ingredient in cuisines all over the world. They are a food that can savory or sweet. A main course, a side, a soup, a salad and beyond. Beans are a power house when it comes to nutrients as they are packed with fiber, protein, vitamin b, folate, magnesium, iron, and on and on. Pure and simple yet so satisfying and familiar beans should be a mainstay in every home.
My favorite? Chick peas! I could eat them straight out of the can! They compliment any salad, puree up into delicious hummus and are awesome mixed into a pasta salad.
Home will always be Buffalo, NY but as a military wife I've called many cities home at one point. Currently, it's NC and will be for another few years.
I have a journalism undergrad degree and have always loved to write. I'm currently going back to school for an online dietetics degree through KSU.
I decided to start blogging because of my love of writing, cooking and healthy living. Maybe just for me but hopefully I can have a positive impact on someone's life.
I am a personal trainer at Gold's gym and I love learning more and more about how amazing our bodies work. I have a true passion for all things healthy and I think good nutrtion is the most important thing one could do for him/herself.
One day I plan on becoming a natural foods chef and writing for a major heath magazine or journal.
I cherish each and everyday of my life and am blessed to have such a wonderful family and great friends. I am married to my soul mate, best friend and all time hero who loves and supports me unconditionally. Each new day is a blessing and I wake up filled with gratitude every morning.
