Thanks for visiting The Bahama Llama! I’m a little bit food obsessed, and I’m usually busy fantasizing about the beach. When I’m not occupied watching DVR’ed Food Network shows, or working my “day job”, I’m usually thinking about, eating, or looking at pictures of food. My favorite things are cooking, traveling (yes, to sample new food), my puppy dog, and going for a run, and that’s what I plan to share!
For me, food is a way to celebrate special occasions and a way to connect with friends and family. So many special events and traditions wouldn’t be the same without the special foods that go along with them! At the same time, I always try to keep in mind how important our food choices are to our health, so my food point of view is simple. I focus on keeping it healthy (most of the time), choosing most things in moderation, and emphasizing whole foods and real ingredients. My inspiration can be summed up in the following quote from Michael Pollan:
“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
You can click on the link to see his article about conflicting evidence concerning food and our health. And if you find that your POV sounds a little bit like mine, I hope you’ll keep coming back to check out recipes and other posts about enjoying life whether it’s on the beach or at home. (Or if you’re really lucky, maybe your home is on the beach?! I am currently resenting you from over here in land-locked middle America…)
I hope you’ll join me on my culinary adventures! 🙂
