Hello world!

I’ve decided to start this experimental food blog.  I figure it’s a very constructive use of my time 🙂

I plan on trying different challenges and themes as a way of adding some spice to my life (pun intended).  Some ideas I had were to cook a different dinner every night for a month without repetition; keep a weekly shopping budget; focus on seasonal, organic, and local ingredients; and manage my household’s waistline, just to name a few.  Obviously it can be difficult to be perfect in each of these areas, but I always strive to keep a good balance.

I find that documenting my progress helps me stay accountable and achieve my goals.  This is true not only in health and nutrition, but in any project you are planning and executing (thinking back to my 9-month stint as a wedding planner-thank G-d for Google docs and shared calendars).

Ok, hope that is enough for my premier post.  Stay tuned to my very first challenge!
