Today, living a healthy lifestyle is at the top of our list, and we’re always looking for simple solutions to help us live a better life. I can remember 8 1/2 years ago, when Travis, my fiancé, moved into his first apartment. At that time, I didn’t know how to cook, and neither did Travis. All we ate was fast food, and processed, frozen junk. It was convenient, cheap, and easy, to grab a cup of ramen noodles for lunch, but I’ll never go back to that.
Eventually, the fast food diet got old, we both wanted healthy, home cooked dinners. When we moved into our current home, four years ago, I really buckled down, and taught myself to cook. I watched video after video, on youtube, trying to teach myself the basics. I stalked Pinterest, and built up a pretty big recipe collection. I had lots of dinner disasters, but somewhere along the line, I started to pick it up. I didn’t have to constantly look up the basics anymore, I just knew them. I started to branch out and cook with healthy ingredients I never tried before. It was a lot of trial and error, but I’ve found what works for us, and what doesn’t.
