About the Blog
Hi and welcome to Feasting not Fasting!
This website has a bounty of healthy recipes for you to try and hopefully fall in love with. Everything you eat doesn't need to be good for you, but making some small changes can have a huge impact on your life and overall health. Feasting Not Fasting focuses on incorporating better options into your diet, instead of taking foods away... cause who wants to give up ice cream? Not me.
My goal is to create sustainable changes instead of short-term restrictive diets that fizzle out as soon as they're over. If you're sick of fad diets and want to make changes that can become a part of your daily lifestyle, you're in the right place.
Most recipes on this site are relatively simple, from scratch, using non-processed ingredients. I don't follow any hard and fast rules and know that we're all busy so I try to find shortcuts anywhere it doesn't detract from the end result. Food is such an important part of life and feasting and having fun with it is what this blog is all about.
I am born and raised Alaskan, but live in the Portland, Oregon area with my pot farming husband, pug-mut Berney, and daughter, Stella. I have an MBA and worked in the energy sector as a consultant for over a decade, spent a few years in sales and now get to spend my time running this website and taking on fun photography and other freelance projects. Cooking has always been my favorite way to spend time and I also love traveling, wine, eating out, gardening, and am always up for an adventure. Food is my love language and I feed pretty much everyone that crosses my threshold, hungry or not.
I'm so happy you stopped by! Dive in, try a recipe and join me at the table.
