I'm Laura and I live, love, cook, eat and work in Austin. I'm hoping to get my Masters in Nutrition and become a certified, registered dietician.
I like food. A lot. I like healthy food that tastes good. I believe in moderation. I'm also a terrible cheapskate.
So I've decided to write about how to cook real food that tastes great and won't give you a heart condition or make you need to change into your baggy sweat pants, and that won't drain your bank account.
I didn't always think this way. I used to eat about 10 fun-size Snickers bars every night and lay on the couch. Then, in college, I lost some weight. Wanna know my secret? Learning to eat right and exercising! I started running, working out and watching what I put in my mouth. And guess what? I lost 43 pounds and kept it off. It's a miracle! (Not really. Lots of people do it.)
So here, I blog about what I eat, what it costs, how it tastes, and occasionally, my dreamboat of a husband and my funny dog, Maple. Thanks for checkin' in!
