Now I'm cookin'

I didn't like to cook. It never seemed worth the effort. I thought fast food always tested better than anything I made. If I made dinner, I usually ate it while dreaming about what I would have ordered at a restaraunt. Amazingly enough that is changing.

Since trying to figure out 'eating clean' I've been cooking a lot. I'm learning to like the food I make. The idea of how much I used to eat McDonald's starts to make me ill.

But today....Today was the first time I really enjoyed the process of cooking. I made a roast in the crockpot and learning from my past didn't put the potatoes in there with it. They always turn out wierd. So I cooked those separate. But in the midst of it all I made my first loaf of wheat bread. Holy cow, it was yummy. I only did one, cuz I was afraid I'd mess it up royally. But it turned out great and I can hardly wait to make more. Maybe soon I'll even get a wheat grinder so I can make my own fresh flour for the bread. But let's take babysteps.

A question for any clean eaters out there.....Is honey clean? Should I be using something different for a sweetener? I know I've heard of Agave Nectar but haven't found it yet.

Any cooking blogs you love and want to pass along to me? I'd love to check them out too.

The bread looks great (love the bowls in the back!) I am so impressed with the cooking!

Okay, so if it is any help, Cassie (you kow how she eats and how skinny she is!) uses honey to sweeten things, and eats it when she is craving a sweet thing. I don't know what you mean by clena- but it isn't refined and processed, so I would say go ahead. Good job!
