Cooking therapy from a former travel nurse

Resolutions January 5, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — freerangenurse @ 9:13 pm

It’s that time of year, isn’t it? Time to make resolutions to lose weight, improve health, exercise more. I am among those trying to set out on a new journey to a better, healthier tomorrow.  My 40th birthday is coming up in a little over six months and it’s time for me to start taking care of the body that has been taking care of me.  I have joined Weight Watchers and Gold’s Gym for the new year and together with some dear friends of mine, I am determined to learn what, really, I have known all along – how to make and eat healthy food and incorporate physical activity in my everyday life.

Will this affect this blog?  Well, of course.  I blog foods that I cook, so if I am making healthier foods, they will be reflected here.  I will probably still do some desserts because I take those treats up to work.  I hope you’ll stick around and try some of the new things posted here.  I promise to make food that is tasty, even if it isn’t loaded with cream and cheese.  I may occasionally cook up something decadent, because part of re-learning healthy eating is knowing that the occasional rich dish is not forbidden, but can be enjoyed in moderation.

Cheers to all of you and to a healthy new year!


Delia, the Free Range Nurse

    Stay away from the Choco Tacos. They are evil!

  2. Good for you Delia. I’m envious that you are motivated to do this. I turned 40 in November and in a perfect world I’d lose 60lbs. Eeeek! Maybe I’ll just start by trying a few of your recipes!

    But I LOVE Choco Tacos! 🙂 Still following, still inspired by you, and -now that I’ve joined WW, too, I’m ready…bring it on!

    • I love the ideal choco taco. I tried a real one a few months ago and was disappointed. The waffle shell was soggy and the ice cream didn’t taste real. I am determined to make one from scratch….someday.
