Posted in Where it all began

My story begins 2 1/2 years ago with my son Nicholas. At the age of 3, Nick measured 37″ tall and weighed 47 pounds. For anyone who might not be familiar with children’s sizes, he was considered average height but off the charts heavy. As a mom, I panicked, cried and worried over what was going wrong. From then I decided to take action. For the last 3 1/2 years, I have been monitoring his eating at home and anywhere else. He now eats an average of about 1200 calories a day and, at his 5th birthday checkup, measured 43″ tall and weighed 53 pounds. Although he is at the top of the chart in weight, at least he’s now on the chart.

Over the last few years, one of the things I have developed a love for is low fat/reduced calorie cooking. This is where our story begins together. I want to share my experiences and recipes with you. I want to share my experiences in preparing dinners, organizing get together with friends and/or eat out to help anyone who is interested in eating delicious meals with less calories and fat.

I promise to share the honest opinions from my family and friends on anything I prepare. Sometimes I take an existing recipe and modify it to cut out the fat and sometimes I just make it up as I go along. I have been documenting my cooking for about a year and already have over 150 recipes.

I hope you join me in this journey so I can help you as well as learn from your feedback. Welcome and let’s get cooking!
