I can honestly say I love golf and have been very lucky to have started at a young age. I was fortunate to not have to deal with knowing the bad swings, shots, or playing in the trees. At that age it was all fun and new. Now fast forward 30yrs and I find my emotions are not so much in check! The frustration of a bad shot now overrides that youthful joy! Sort of! You see, now that I am older, I understand where that bad shot came from, whereas, when I was 13 I had no idea. With that knowledge I now can correct my swing and forget the bad shot. Well we really don't forget and that can be the reason why we hate it at the same time. I know for me it's the challenge of wanting to improve my game. I think for those that started late its an even bigger challenge to overcome and so it takes a lot more effort to play. I can now say that I am extremely happy about my new venture in Golf Performance, with my experience of 25yrs in the fitness industry and 30yrs of golf it is a perfect match and I am opening up a Golf performance studio in Bellevue, and its called GO Long Fitness. I will be blogging about golf performance and how to bring back that love of the game.

This is my first attempt at writing something so I chose to start with some of my favorite dishes that will serve your health well. I like to use the seasons to guide my meals so i look for the freshest ingredients to start with. I try to stick with whole organic wild foods if available and that typically is called a hunter/gatherer diet, nothing comes in a package. This way I know for sure my meals are "clean" so to speak. As for the season, it is Fall and fish here in the Northwest are the best in the world, (my opinion of course). So the choices are abundant from Halibut to mackerel, which, by the way, is some of the best for your omegas......anyway if you can think of it, the Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean will have it. I try to find local fishermen to source from to encourage responsible fishing practices because we all have heard that certain species are threatened on a daily basis. If you don't like fish that's ok, you probably haven't had it prepared to your style of eating and therefore not had the right flavoring. I like to try new ways of preparing old meals, I always seem to surprise myself and discover a new spice or oil to enhance the meals. It is so refreshing when you find new spice of the week, mine this month was smoked paprika. I must have put it on everything including the fish. Anyway, in closing, I plan to post a few recipes in the coming weeks or so as I remember that I have a blog now so see ya next time
