About me

I started this blog in an attempt to start formalising a lot of my ideas and opinions, and develop a stronger focus in my life.  I have many wide-ranging interests, but am now learning that they may be all more closely connected than I ever imagined, and my goal now now is to see what I can turn them all into.

I currently live on the Sunshine Coast of Australia, with my younger son, and my aging cat.  I am at university full-time, pursuing a  degree in nutrition and dietetics (with a side of exercise science).  I am also a qualified personal trainer.

I love to cook, especially baking.  I am currently on a mission to eliminate most, if not all, processed foods from my kitchen, and only eat what I have made myself.  I already bake my own bread, but further goals for 2011, include making my own yoghurt and cheese.  However, I am not an extremist, by any means.  If the world did not include red wine and dark chocolate, then it would not be a happy place.

I also love to sew, although at present, that has been pushed to the side as university has eliminated most of my free time.  I also grow some of my own food, although renting places limitations on that.  But I always have at least herbs and a few salad vegetables.

My driving passion at present is the importance of food, and the part it plays in our lives (aside from the obvious, as fuel for energy).  I want to learn all I can- from how specific foods function and affect our bodies; to how it is produced and processed; the psychological/cultural relationship we have with food; and how it impacts on the rest of our life.

  1. I enjoyed reading some of your posts. I found your site through the Post A Day page. I just signed up for that as well. I, too, am trying to live a healthier life and am working towards eating healthier and becoming more fit. I appreciate what you’re writing about and will check back often. It’s nice to know there are others out there working to live healthier too.
