Hi, I’m Heidi. Welcome to my Food Doodles. I’m a 23 year old stay at home mom of two – an almost 4 year old boy and a 17 month old girl. I’m wife to a total carnivore and I’m very fortunate that he loves me enough to put up with my veggie loving ways(and me sneaking veggies into his meals :D). I love to bake and cook and experiment in the kitchen. I mostly like to keep things healthy, choosing healthy fats, natural sugars and whole grains and keeping the quantities of fat and sugar lower than they are in traditional baked goods and treats.
I’m very interested in nutrition and try my best to do a lot of research on the foods we eat, so hopefully I can pass a little bit of information on to you as well. It’s so important to me to feed my kids well. At the same time we’re not 100% strict about anything. We eat a mostly plant based diet, but we aren’t vegetarian. We do buy eggs and meat locally, that is something that’s important to us. Movies like Food, Inc and books like The Omnivores Dilemma by Michael Pollan have influenced how we choose to eat, but there are always times when we bend our food rules 🙂
One of my favorite hobbies is baking bread, although I’ve found it’s very difficult to make a bread 100% whole grain so you will find most of my bread recipes contain white flour or gluten to help it rise. I still consider it better for us than storebought. I’m very picky when it comes to processed foods from the grocery store and as a result I make mostly everything we eat from scratch, but I’m always open to trying new things.
I’ve always had a love for photography. I took classes in high school but never pursued it. Now I finally have a chance to learn and experiment with it. I’m very new with it, so any help is appreciated.
