The first time I heard the word “foodie” my ears twitched a little. The term was a new one for me. What on earth was a foodie? At the time I didn’t know what the word foodie meant, but I strongly suspected that it applied to me. As it turns out, a “foodie” is a person who has an ardent or refined interest in food; a gourmet. It was somewhat of a relief to discover that there was an entire following of people who suffer from my exact affliction, and there is a diagnostic label for what I have…
My name is Bethany, and I am a foodie.
I love to eat food. I love to cook food. I love to read about food. I love to grow food. I love to write about food. I love to dream up new ways to display food. I love to nourish my family and friends with food.
One distinction must be made. I am a CLEAN EATING foodie. My strong preference is to consume foods whose ingredients are as close to their natural state as possible. This means whole grains, unprocessed meat and dairy, and organic when possible. This does not necessarily mean low fat or low calories. For example, I have nothing against cheese and chocolate as long as it is REAL cheese and chocolate, and it is consumed in moderation. I do not want to put things into my body that have ingredients my great grandmother wouldn’t recognize.
In our Food and Recipes category you will find recipes that I have developed, or that I have taken from other sources and adapted them to a cleaner eating approach. I do not pretend to be a trained chef or a food photographer. However, I will do my best to communicate my favorite recipes as clearly as possible. I hope you find them to be as yummy as I do!
