My beginning …..

I’ve been struggling to begin writing this for months. Do I really know enough, what can I possibly offer; more importantly, who will want to read it ??? Well, today I woke up and decided it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if I know enough, it doesn’t matter about what I think I could offer and it doesn’t matter who reads it. I’m going to begin this journey because I really love the new lifestyle choice I’ve made and I’m loving the recipes and route it’s taking my life in. I don’t mind if no one reads it or finds it interesting but if it brings a smile to just one persons face and makes them think about what they are putting in their mouths, then that’s enough for me.

My journey began at the beginning of the year when my younger brother visited and started talking about this “new” low carb/high fat “fad”. When I say started talking, what I really mean is he went on and on and on sending us links to various You Tube videos. He didn’t just stop there, oh no, he then moved on to ebooks and yet more You Tube tutorials. Now I love my brother, but when he has a new idea we all have to hear about it. So, I didn’t take too much notice and just tried to nod in all the right places. He didn’t give up. More ebooks, more You Tube ……. long and the short of it was my better half gave in and began watching the videos. This in turn led to him then banging on about it, read this, watch this, OMG this is amazing just watch this, did you know……

Tbh, I simply gave in. I started to read the book, I watched the videos and then I didn’t know whether to be annoyed or amazed, I think I was probably both. It appears everything I had ever been told on how to eat and prepare food was actually incorrect. The more I read, the more it makes total sense. So I too have embarked upon the new eating regime of cutting back carbs and increasing fats and I feel fantastic. I, like my brother, have become that annoying person banging on about it and texting friends with You Tube Videos and ebooks until they too give up and join in the fun. Did I mention, red wine and cheese are acceptable – Pass me my wine glass and the cheese board πŸ™‚
