Welcome! loveandbutterblog.com is a site dedicated to the health and food, the hobbyist.

On the topic of food, I am always trying to “get the junk” out of my family’s diet.  But in reality I cannot just buy all of our food at the health store or spend hours in the kitchen each day.  I cook from the heart.  Food must always taste good…really good!  And we must reconcile taste to our body’s needs.  I use ingredients I can pronounce and try to know where they come from.  I read the ingredient list not the nutritional facts.  I want to feel balanced and energetic and I create meals that warm the bellies and the hearts of my family and friends.

One reason I want to blog recipes and techniques, is because I want people to know it doesn’t have to be that hard.  As you’ve heard, the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.  And so it is with real food.  Each time you pass the drive through and put a real meal on the table you have conquered a battle.  Each time you begin a new habit that will ensure healthy eating, one more mile down.  I would love for you to join me on this journey, of health, of awareness, and of self-reliance.  You can read how I began my own journey here.  There is a better life than prescription drugs and fast food…real life, and it begins with REAL FOOD!!
