Welcome to Foodie on the Side! Here I’ll be chronicling my journey to feed myself in the most delicious, real, & cost effective way I can. If you’re like me, you love to eat out at restaurants, but you’re on a budget. Oh, and you LOVE to cook! So you know how satisfying it is to cook something delicious that makes you and your loved ones smile. I watch tons of cooking shows, rip recipes out of magazines all the time, and even daydream about running a restaurant, so of course I’m interested in learning how to make everything I love to order at restaurants, at home – for less – with lots of leftovers that I can save for easy weekday meals!
Food is one of the greatest joys in my life. I love making and eating delicious food. All the time. As much as I can. My diet is generally centered around buying organic/cage-free products, keeping meat to a minimum, avoiding processed foods, and making vegetables taste d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s. Because the more vegetables the better. The healthier. The leaner. I love to eat, but I’m also trying to lose weight. And thankfully I’ve learned that I CAN have everything I love, just depending on when and how much. Eating delicious food AND losing weight. That’s why I love to cook! I make the tastiest, freshest, quality friggin’ breakfast sandwiches money can buy, and save money by doing it. And money is good. :)
