A challenging break

It’s been a tough decision for me, but this week I have decided to take a break from my US National Food Day Challenge.  This is for a number of reasons, but the main one is that I found myself totally consumed with what I needed to make each week, and making lots of food that I didn’t really want to make (or eat), rather than just having fun in the kitchen.  This also led to many instances of eating way too much and feeling sick (even when not using any refined sugar).  

You all know how much I love cooking and baking – I’m not going to give that up.  But my plan is to go back to making what I want to make, not what some calendar says I should eat.  I will try to keep this website up and running with recipes that I test and find to be successful – some healthy, some not.  I will still cook for the family, I will still bake for reasons – like potluck dinners, special family events etc.  But I don’t want to continue the cycle of baking 2-3 lots of cookies or other sweets, as well as cakes/slices and various lunches that only I would eat … and so I have them for 5 days in a row.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this decision – and what type of recipes you’d like to see me concentrate on to better meet your needs now that I’m not just following the US National Food Day calendar.  Even just some encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

Until next time, enjoy cooking at home!
