Feed the Run
My passion for cooking developed the moment I was old enough to "help" my Mom in the kitchen. There are videos of me at 2 years old standing on a step-stool in my apron, usually licking the bowl, or eating all the ingredients while my Mom cooked. I had homemade lunches until the day I graduated high school, and for that I am forever grateful albeit a little embarrassed.
Eating dinner together every night was a priority for my family. Some of my funniest memories happened while sitting around the dinner table: getting smacked in the head with a piece of ground beef; laughing so hard milk shot out our nostrils; and reciting ridiculous movie scenes from whatever movie we had just watched. Mom would always make too much food at any special occassion resulting in the inevitable over-eating. After our last bites we would succumb to the floor only to miraculously find a second wind when Mom would bring out dessert. These memories aren't just from when we were little, this tradition still holds true whenever my family gets together.
Having a positive relationship with food isn't always easy. Over the years I've figured out how to healthily fuel my body, while still being able to indulge in decadent food whenever the opportunity presents itself.
In May 2014, I was given a fantastic chance to share the recipes I make every week on my blog Feed The Run on the Canadian Running website (http://runningmagazine.ca/category/bloggers/feed-the-run/).
