Changing with the Times

Larissa at Mendocino, CA Sept 2012

I have taken a bit of a break from blogging over the last few months….not that I’ve stopped thinking about blogging (and about posts that I’d like to write) but I’ve been struggling to sit down and actually write a post. For a number of reasons I just needed to take a break. This year has been such a crazy whirlwind of a year for me. It’s definitely had it’s highs and lows, but fortunately the year is ending on a high for us, and I’m so happy with how everything has worked out.

I feel ready to start blogging more regularly now, but I want to do it a little differently this time. I initially set up this blog to focus on recipes, and only recipes. But the reality is that my life is about much more than just recipes, and for this blog to survive and thrive, it needs to be more closely aligned with my life.

Recipes are just one aspect of what it means to eat real food. I want to share what it’s like to be a real food girl (and mama!) trying to live in a fake food world. I want to talk about food sourcing and specifics about my local area (Sonoma County, California). I want to profile specific foods and talk about how and why I use them. Sometimes I may even touch on non-food related topics as I come across things that inspire me. And finally, I’d love to come up with a way to somehow blend my love of photography into this site.

Some of the things I want to post about soon are…..

I am 4.5 months in to my elimination diet which has removed all of the foods that I am sensitive to. I’m feeling better in so many ways, but I still have a way to go yet. Food sensitivity is a very important topic and can be a considerable barrier to good health, so I definitely want to talk about this in the new year.

Our family has grown! Yay for a new little baby!…. and bye bye to what little spare time I already had LOL! More details to come very soon 🙂

I also have a bunch of new recipes to share (of course!)

So that is where things are at….I apologize for the long silences over the past few months…..I’ve been thinking a lot about blogging, just not doing much of it 🙂 But I hope that will start to change now……stay tuned!

    Sounds like the break has done you some good! It definitely got you thinking and taking you in a direction that is more comfortable and closer to your heart. And that’s what blogging should be about. When I started blogging the thing I read over and over was the write about something that you are passionate about. Looks like that is the direction you’re taking. I’m looking forward to it! Congratulations on your new baby!!!!!
