I am a 41 year old mom of 1. I am a realtor, enjoy fishing, travel, animals and cooking. My favorite things to cook are new recipes or trying to make unhealthy ones healthy. My new favorite ingredient is cauliflower as I can use it as rice, potatoes, pizza crust and just raw and cooked many different ways. My main objective is to try and limit the amount of sugar that goes into my body so I read labels very closely. I have even just started making my own seasoning blends and sauces so that I know what I am actually eating. I don't eat many things out of a box or bag anymore and stay away from things that list more than 5 ingredients or things I can't pronounce. That didn't happen overnight so if you are attempting to change your lifestyle don't do it all at once or it won't stick. Little changes every couple months really do add up.
I was diagnosed with Graves Disease 2 years ago. That's a thyroid condition. Anyone with thyroid conditions can already feel my pain. My goal is to attempt to fix it by healthy eating, exercise and alternative medicine. My endocrinologist thinks I am nuts but he is willing to let me try it my way as long as I continue to take my meds.
