Hi. I'm afraid I got ahead of myself and started posting before introducing myself. I'm your basic home cook who decided about a year and a half ago that my eating habits were disgusting and not helping my health any so I set out to learn how to cook healthier food on a regular basis. I took it one step further and decided it was time to go vegetarian as well (for several reasons). Unfortunately I didn't educate myself first and after about six months I started really feeling the effects of not getting enough protein. So I have regressed and am now eating poultry and some fish again but no red meat or pork. I don't really miss it at all and am looking forward to working my way back to vegetarianism in the future. Being somewhat restricted in what I eat has made me try more things and be a bit more creative in my cooking. It has also made me realize how much I don't know. I'm here to learn, and if I can, share what I have learned. Look forward to getting to know you all.
