For all of my adult life I've been striving to be a healthy eater. I can say that healthy looks very different to me now than it did 20 years ago. I restricted so many foods from my diet and constantly counted calories, that it made food not fun. It was almost forbidden!
But I secretly I loved food and loved cooking. I loved cooking so much I spent my days off making things to share with my family and friends.
I came to the realization that I could live a healthy lifestyle and still enjoy my favorite foods in moderation.
