Last Fall, I had so much fun hosting a “Healthy Tailgate” themed cooking demo for my local sorority alumni chapter! I LOVE preparing food for people I love, and showing how eating healthy can be FUN, so this was the perfect theme for a Fall event. It was so fun to share how I prepared the food, and then to enjoy it with some lovely sisters as well. With this big football game I keep hearing about this weekend (sorry, not a big NFL girl) and the onslaught of the polar vortex we are currently experiencing here in lovely O-H-I-O, I thought it would be the perfect time to share these recipes. They’re not just tailgate-friendly, but totally hit the spot when you’re looking for some healthier cozy comfort food!
A huge part of my wellness journey has been letting go of unrealistic expectations and goals motivated from messages and values that weren’t my own. The beauty in releasing the power from those things is that I can now look to the new year feeling refreshed an energized, not because I have a clean slate to start over and “do better,” but because I get to re-visit my values and priorities and set intentions to live in line with those intuitive guideposts going forward.
