I started this blog to make public my personal commitment to a healthy lifestyle and provide resources to others who would like to do the same. I have a serious baking addiction and after my father, who has Type II Diabetes, suffered a heart attack I started wondering what my baking was doing to contribute to the poor health of myself and my loved ones. He has continued to suffer with heart problems related to his diabetes, and now months later I am finally trying to make mine an influence for good in the lives of those around me.
Healthy eating is not about looking good and being skinny and getting ready for bathing suit season. We have to realize that the food choices we make each day might seem unimportant, but they have a powerful effect on our daily and long-term health. I want to live my life so that I will be here for my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
