Health knowledge made personal
Hello. After starting a healthy/clean eating lifestyle about a year ago I have had several opportunities to share what I have found out along the way. I am in no way an expert, but I have read many books, magazines, and cook books over the past year and have gleaned quite a bit of information from them that I am happy to share.
The nameâ?¦Rebeltarian. I mused over blog titles for quite a while and while there were many front runnersâ?¦rebeltarian came out on the top. The name has layers of meaning.
1. Some of my friends call me Rebel (my name=Rebekah). I think this is mostly because when you type my name into a cell phone using T9 rebel is the first thing it comes up with. It could also be that I am just crazy rebelliousâ?¦or not.
2. Since following a healthy eating lifestyle I have â??rebelledâ?? from the norm and what I had always known in the past when it came to food.
3. I wanted to include the suffix â??terianâ?? because I donâ??t really fall under any specific label when it comes to my eating habitsâ?¦thus I am a rebeltarian. I eat vegetarian 95% of the time. No specific reasoning or emotional attachment to animals, just a personal preference. There was however this one time in college when I was handed a pamphlet about the cruelty in the pork industry and I have eaten very little if any pork since this point. I am a closeted bleeding heart.
This blog will be a combination of:
â?¢Healthy recipes from other blogs and cookbooks.
â?¢Some crazy recipes I might just make up.
â?¢Product reviews on items that I pick up while aimlessly roaming the aisles of whole foods, central market, sprouts farmers market, and even aldi.
â?¢Adventures as I cook up what I receive every week in my CSA (community supported agriculture) from Eden Creek Farms.
â?¢I might even talk about my mis adventures in running as I train to run the Nike Womenâ??s half marathon in October.
â?¢And honestly, I have really weird dreams, so I might blog about them sometimes tooâ?¦..
