A few years back I had this magnificent idea. Each week for one year I would attempt a challenge. Once the challenge was complete I would blog about it explaining the difficulties I had doing the challenge, or stating what I learned from each one. I miss that blog sometimes. It was so refreshing to make myself do and learn new things. I am also the type of person who enjoys a good challenge both physically and mentally. I love to set goals and accomplish them. With all that being said today I really want to give this a go again. There are a million amazing health and fitness blogs out there (maybe not a million, because I did not actually count all of them). Each of these sites peak my interest to great extents. So taking part of the idea from Julie and Julia, and the other part from my own crazy curiosity I am planning on trying a new batch of recipes per week via various websites. I will try them; taste them, and then blog about them, giving each one a review. (I have my eye right now on a Vegan recipe from www.ohsheglows.com which looks amazing). I don't believe in cutting out certain foods from our diets (unless it means overly processed junk, which I am all for). I don't exactly think that it is completely beneficial to our health to completely take out things such as diary or even some meat; I am more of a “moderation is key” kind of girl. (Many people argue both ways whether diary is good or bad for you, same with meat etc.). I do however feel that the benefits of eating a more natural diet are obvious, and have the potential to be delicious. So therefore I am willing to try it, to be the guinea pig per- se, to experiment. So once a week I am looking to try at least one Vegan recipe, while the rest will be just healthy and delicious. I will post the links to the sites for you to glance over as well, and tell you all about my tasting experiences! Stay tuned I go grocery shopping tomorrow!
