Welcome!

Hello and welcome to Delia's Kitchen! 

I am super excited for this new blogging adventure. The idea for Delia's Kitchen has been on my heart for a long time. I have been hesitant to start this blog because I have a fear of people hating me for trying to tell you what to eat. Let's face it. Food is a sensitive topic for a lot of us, myself included. It is not my intention to tell you what to eat or make anyone feel guilty for eating certain foods. Although I am incredibly passionate about food, I don't have a perfect diet. I have been known to polish off a pint of {organic} ice cream, especially during finals week. (Did I mention I am in the process of gaining a degree in dietetics and nutrition?) I strive for moderation in my diet and not perfection. With that being said, I am so excited to share my thoughts on nutrition with all of you. You can rest assured that all information on this blog is factual and scientifically based. No crazy gimmicks here! Since becoming a mother three years ago, I have taken a huge interest in what foods we put in our body because I firmly believe that every bite we take is effecting our body in one way or another. I strive to feed my family whole, organic, unprocessed foods at home. There are huge misconceptions about organic food being "too Expensive". I hope to show you that it doesn't have to be expensive. With a detailed grocery list, and careful planning, everyone can afford to eat organic, whole foods. 

A huge thanks to my husband James and my brother Ethan for their very hard work behind the scenes! It has been a fun journey bringing my vision to fruition.  Within this blog you will find a lot of topics including: Genetically Modified Foods, Organic Eating on a Budget, How to Decode Labels at the Grocery Store, Real Food Recipes, and much more!  Whether you are single, newly married, raising five kids, or retired and lovin' life, I hope this blog can be a resource of sound and helpful information about how to choose healthy, delicious food for long term health and longevity.


Now onto the more exciting stuff. It is my greatest intention to educate my readers on what normal, balanced eating looks like. I hear a lot of questions from friends and family about how to eat healthy, but the # 1 question/complaint is, "I want to eat healthy, but I just don't know where to start". Rest assured, because I want to tell you exactly where to start!  Starting on May 7th, myself, my husband, and my daughter will be embarking on a 30 day challenge of whole, unprocessed foods. For these 30 days we will be eating absolutely no processed foods. In addition, I will be posting our meal plans and grocery lists each week for those who want to follow along.  We will have one "cheat day" mid challenge where we will be celebrating our four year wedding anniversary. I am choosing to put in one cheat day because I want to illustrate how to indulge without overindulging. Our foods will be mostly organic and local because I want to show my readers that it is possible to eat organically without spending your life savings. For those of you interested in hopping on this whole foods bandwagon, be sure to check out my previous post for details.
