Too Legit To Quit

On Friday night, we took the plunge and became a self- hosted site! That’s right, we’re a legit website now!

Check it out: www.thefeelgoodfoodie.com

Now, it’s still a little rough around the edges (visually) but hopefully in the next few weeks we’ll work out all the kinks.

If you currently subscribe to *this* blog (and want to keep receiving Feel Good Foodie updates) then check out the right hand side of the new website for a “Subscribe To This Site” box. Add your email address and POW! You’ll be a subscriber to the site! I hope this isn’t a super inconvenience; my subscribers were the only part of the “thefeelgoodfoodie.wordpress.com” blog that I couldn’t transfer.

Thanks for all the support!

Hello Everyone!

First of all, let me just say that I am beyond excited that The Feel Good Foodie Facebook page is only 12 “likes” away from it’s September 1st goal of 100 “likes”! That is so amazing! Thank you so much to all the fellow foodies (and wannabe foodies) out there who are supporting this journey. I can’t wait to see where we’ll be a year from now! You guys are awesome…so, thank you!

Now let’s get down to the nitty gritty:

My husband is out of town this week for business. This is a big time bummer for JBird and I…but it also means I don’t have to cook. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love cooking with a fiery passion but every good chef needs a break from time to time. I’m currently all out of “thinkin’ juice” and can hardly put a bowl of cereal together correctly these days (Guess who used the expired almond milk on her cereal yesterday? Me! The bigger question is WHY did I not throw away the expired almond milk sooner? I knew it had gone bad…I just couldn’t seem to part with it…serves me right).

I didn’t even go grocery shopping this week. I literally plan on only eating things that we already have in the pantry, fridge or freezer. Which of course means aged cheddar and wheat thins for at least 2 dinners this week…possibly 3. (Actually, not going grocery shopping this week is in response to the obscene amount of money I spent on groceries in July. When we calculated all the receipts up at the end of the month…my jaw hit the floor and I threw up a little in my mouth…it was THAT bad).

This week off from cooking is also in preparation to NEXT week; when we’ll have out of town guests here for the week and I’ll need to be on my A-Game in meal preparations and delicious dinner ideas. The heat is on.

Since I won’t be posting recipes this week I’ve decided to dedicate this week in Feel Good Foodie Land to tips on meal planning, grocery shopping, ┬ásticking to a budget, and maybe a post on all the random things I eat while my husband is out of town (Miso soup and cinnamon shredded wheat = todays lunch!) .

And for your viewing pleasure:

Doesn’t this photo just crack you up?! It’s a corkscrew I found a Target. I think I’m going to have to go back and buy it. Too Funny!

Hello Everyone!!

Please excuse my lack of posts over the past week! My mind has been one jumbled mess! My family and I are currently camping in Northern WI. Actually, I am currently sitting in the Home Depot parking lot while JBird naps; while the hubster buys an extension cord! Then it’s off to Wally World we go…since SOMEONE forgot to pack pillows (and by someone, I mean ME..haha oops!)

I will return next week refreshed and energized to write lots of new and exciting posts!

But until then I will leave you with some fun facts that I learned last night at my Holistic Mom’s Network meeting:

-Adult males in the US eat 500 times more protein then they need to (and women eat 200 times more than is recommended); and the majority of this excess protein comes from processed food. So, next time you feel like you’re low on protein eat some legumes…not a triple decker bacon cheeseburger.

-Do you often wake up fatigued? That’s a sign that your liver is congested! Try cutting out processed foods (bread, pasta, sugar, soda, etc) and eat some leafy greens (LOTS of leafy greens)

-Fresh mint leaves are a great way to boost energy! Throw some in ice tea, ice water or just chew a few leaves!

-Do you often feel over stressed about everything? Feeling anemic? Do you crave salt? Chances are your adrenal glands are out of whack.

Also, when you let yourself get too run down and don’t take care of yourself (not eating right, not getting enough sleep, etc) you run the risk of messing up your adrenal glands..which can lead to chronic fatigue and even psychological disorders (like depression).

-Are you constantly constipated? Do you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Were you breastfed as an infant? Not being breastfed as a baby can lead to digestive issues as an adult. Breastmilk helps create and stabilize essential bacterias in our guts. In fact, an infant’s gut isn’t fully formed until they are about 6 months old (so they should be breastfed for at least 6 months; and not be fed solids until then either).

-Did you know that food poisoning is a sign that the bacteria in your gut are “off” (if everything was “normal” they would’ve been able to fight off whatever nasties entered your system..preventing you from getting sick in the first place).

Last night’s meeting was so inspiring! I’m hoping to schedule a consultation with our guest speaker Dr. Katy Wallace to get her input on my own health and digestive issues (and maybe score an interview for the blog while I’m at it!).

Enjoy your weekends! I will be “roughing” it until Sunday! Stay tuned for a Camp Cooking Post!
