Once upon a time I believed pizza was healthy. As long as I chose to top it with peppers and mushrooms, it was practically a salad if you asked me then. I ordered those bad boys twice a week. Back then, one 30-minute Zumba class per week was exercise enough.

The in-between of then and now is probably boring. Time has raced by, and the details are too fuzzy anyway. One day I bought a bag of lentils. We moved to Baltimore where I can find a Farmer’s Market every day in the warmer months (except Monday’s for some reason…why, Baltimore?). Mostly I began to find more fulfillment in not just feeding my children the foods they love, but preparing this food at home from nutrient-rich ingredients. I dropped 20 pounds with regular at-home exercise. Certain things happened, and now here we are: healthier than we were, continuing to learn more every day, and striving to find better ways to live.

Skillet Season is my way to help people who feel like I felt: eating healthy is expensive, cooking is tricky, and foodies are dorks. 

Every recipe I stir together begins with a simple scrounge of the grocery store’s produce section. Just grab all the vegetables: whatever you like, or whatever you don’t hate.

This is a blog about mindful living & eating written by a recovering middle-of-the-grocery-store shopper, for others like me: raised on boxed instant stuffing and Steak Ums, and trying to figure out an affordable healthy escape from it.
