If you didn’t catch it at first, my name is Liz. Some of you may know me from my “old” blog, Impatient & Hungry. I gave that up, thinking I didn’t have “time” to blog, but really I was just spending my time doing lame stuff like Facebook creeping and playing one too many Sporcle games. I’ve decided to return to blogging because I get a lot more joy out of it than I do finding out yet another one of my Facebook “friends” is pregnant for the seventh time or being able to name all 50 states in a certain amount of time.
Whew. Anyway, for those of you who are newbies, I’m 21 years old and in my fourth year of college studying psychology. For three years, I went to a university about 200 miles away but recently transferred to a school closer to home. This move sparked a lot of other changes in all aspects of my life – ranging from how I eat to what I do with my spare time.
Speaking of how I eat…I love to eat. The Food Network is my favorite channel and I could spend a dangerously long time in the cookbook section at any (well-stocked) bookstore. When I’m not eating, I’m usually thinking about food. This makes it easy for other people when it comes to gift-giving occasions such as Christmas…
I don’t like to use labels, but I’m a pretty standard vegetarian (stopped eating meat in June 2008 and haven’t looked back since) – something that’s not too surprising nowadays. I also have a corn intolerance, though, which makes for fun and interesting grocery store and restaurant experiences 😉 Somehow in the land where some form of corn seems to be in just about everything, I am learning to make it work.
As much as I love to eat, I do have a life outside of food. While I’ve dabbled in running, yoga and strength training for the past year or two, I have made the promise to myself that 2011 is going to be the year I truly commit to being kind to my body. Of course eating well is part of that plan, but exercise also plays a role. That being said, however, I don’t want this to be a blog just focused on eating or exercise. This is my whole life and there is more to it than that. I’ll probably write about food a lot because I think about (and eat) it a lot, but other things you can expect to see around here are book reviews, random stories about my life in college and living back at home (with my parents, younger sister, and three hounds), and whatever else strikes my fancy. Hope you enjoy 🙂
