Yep, times they are a changin'! What I Gather began as just a little ol' recipe blog where I could share my real food creations with the world. My love for real food pushed me to go back to school and get my Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University and write The Everything Paleo Pregnancy Book while I was at it. Now that I've graduated I am ready to share my real food knowledge bombs with the world and it's time for my little corner of the web to reflect what I truly have to offer you.
I no longer follow a strict Paleo diet, as I did for about three years after first discovering it. I believe the majority of people can eat all types of whole foods, including grains and dairy. The focus should be on food quality and sustainability and eating to support your health and fuel your activity. The tricky part is that this looks different for everybody. What makes one person feel good may not make another person feel good, but I don't think that is a reason for everybody to eliminate entire food groups. That is what I hope to show you---what real food is, how to know which foods may not be working for you and how to make all of it practical, approachable and budget-friendly!
I won't be updating the blog for a while because I'll be hard at work creating a shiny, sparkly new site for you! I need your help, though. I'd love to know what YOU are struggling with? What do you need help with? What kind of recipes do you want to see? Shoot me a message and let me know so I can make What I Gather your hub for real food recipes and healthy living tips!
See you soon...
