My first order of business is to include more fruits, vegetables and whole foods in my diet. Really what we hear all the time about how to improve our diets.... and promptly ignore.
My problem? I don't cook. Seriously. My first apartment's oven was a desk that I stacked papers on. I literally never used it. A dear friend of mine Linda Walker used to tell people that I went to the drive through and picked up two cheeseburgers... one for now and one for later. I just never learned, I look at a cupboard and I do not see food, I see random items that might as well have japanese written all over them. Once baby sitting when I was younger I screwed up hot dogs.. oh yes hot dogs. KA BOOM, Ker SPLAT, however you would like to imagine what happens when you put hot dogs in the microwave for 5 minutes. It's sad, but some how I have made it this far!
I am betting that I am not the only one like this and that's why this adventure is so neat, if I can do it, ANYONE can do it!
With that in mind, you can see how adding a vegetables to a diet in a substantial manner could stump someone like me. Vegetables = salad = rabbit food. Boring.
Well I am setting out to make it happen, to learn how to eat a whole foods based diet (majority of which is fruits and veggies), cook, and live a healthy lifestyle so that when I do eventually become pregnant and have a family of my own I can set my kids up for success.
I am excited to share this part with you too. Look for more to come!
