When I first started making my diet changes there was this horrible transitioning phase. I had two major difficulties. The first was I had just started purging out my fridge and cupboards and didn't exactly know how to refill them. So I basically ate boiled chicken and raw fruits and veggies all the time. The second was that I was still sick. My body hadn't quite purged and healed yet from all the stuff I had been eating. It was on one of the days when I was miserably sick and not knowing how to add real flavor to anything that my friend Jennifer brought this soup over and I just had to have the recipe! It was perfect! There was so much flavor and I could actually eat it! It also gave me some hope that I really wouldn't be eating boiled chicken for the rest of my life. It's one of the reasons why I started blogging. To help and inspire others to live happier and healthier lives. Even if some (or all) of these recipes aren't to somebody's liking I hope that it will give people hope that they can find healthy options they enjoy. After all life should be yummy!
