One Year Anniversary: Looking Backwards and Forwards

What IF…? Gourmet celebrates its first anniversary this week.  It has been a transformative year, and I am grateful for all the positive changes in my health that have resulted from following an anti-inflammatory eating plan and a sustainable exercise regimen.  After a year of spending nearly all of my free time researching nutrition, testing recipes, and strengthening my body through yoga and running, it’s a bit of a relief to step back, take a deep breath, and ease up on all this self-absorption.  As the weather warms up and Iowa’s outdoor culture comes alive again, I find I want to be out there living, enjoying the health and mobility I have regained during this first stage of a lifelong journey.  I’ve got friends to visit, a garden to tend, a new pup to train, my first half-marathon to run, and trips to take, near and far.

I'm expecting the newest addition to our family to keep me busy this summer!

I’ll still continue to educate myself about nutrition, and I’ll still develop and post new recipes.  I’m just planning to scale back formally to once-a-week posts, on Tuesdays.  It’s going to be a great summer!
