The Hot Mess Life

November 20, 2009


Again with the food, I don't want this to turn into a food blog, but food is a major part of my life.  And I am beginning a journey of what is called a holistic diet.  I am eating a lot more raw and fresh veggies and fruit and exploring new recipes, not a lot of meat at all, in the last week I have only eaten salmon and i think tomorrow night will be halibut.  A lot of beans, lentils, and spices.  Oh yes, and teas.  I looove teas so I figured this would be a pretty easy sell for me as well. 
I am only on my 4th day and already last night I "strayed".  I made something called pumpkin spice cake.  It is very easy and there a lot of variations.  But, you take one can of pumpkin filling and a package of spice cake (a lot of people do carrot cake) mix together and bake as usual.  It is pretty low in fat and as long as you don't put the homemade cream cheese topping on it, it is pretty good for you.  So I made this last night thinking I would be nice to my husband and give him a treat.  Of course I had to have a piece or two, again, like I said it would not have been so bad if I didn't put the cream cheese frosting on it. 
So, I hope to come back with some feedback on this new adventure of food, as well as some recipes and how I am doing.  My main goal for this is that we hope to have children within the next year and I would like my body to be very healthy so I am able to have a lot of energy to care for my children and I hope it will make them healthy as well.  I also figure if I do this now, I will be used to it by the time we do have children so I am not so overwhelmed. 
So folks, stay tuned to find out more.  So far only one recipe has not been the best, all the other are very good.
