So, I haven't posted on food in a while, which is a shame, because I've been cooking up a storm. I've worked with my Meetup.com group (Cooking Club for Women Who Don't Like to Cook), as well as the Western Wake Farmer's Market and several companies around the area to perform some awesome cooking classes and demos. I've been developing recipes and spending more time in the kitchen then I thought possible. I need a break!
It also came to my attention that many of my followers may be missing out on this food action that I'm posting through Instagram. For whatever reason, Instagram is not one of the social media sites I can suggest at the top of this page for you to check me out on. With that in mind, please follow me on Instagram at Jen.Singh.RD for all my great food pics.
Of course, continue to follow me here as well. As the year winds down, I will be able to post all of the things I've done these past few months, sharing recipes with photos and tips along the way.
Which reminds me, many people ask why I don't share more recipes on my site. I must apologize for that, but I like to keep most of my recipes for my clients. The world wide web is filled with a million different recipes, and while I try to figure out how to make mine stand out, I would prefer to share most of them directly with those I am influencing through personal consultation, workshops, demos and lunch & learns. However, as more of these recipes are developed and shared, I will be able to share them more freely with everyone else, as well. Who knows, I may even have a cookbook by the end of next year!
But I digress. I titled the post "I've been busy" to also highlight something I hear all of the time. A friend and colleague of mine that I co-author a newsletter for Excel Body Fitness with, Heidi Kleine, wrote about how we use excuses of a lack of time or money to avoid focusing on staying healthy. These really are just excuses. Just as my title is really an excuse. Yes I've been busy, but it does come down to priorities, and unfortunately, I back-burnered this website for too long. Don't do that to yourself. Make your health a priority and I promise, you will find the necessary resources.
