Welcome to Recipes by Ryann. I wanted to post a quick welcome note and tell you a little bit about myself and why I decided to start this blog.
My interest in health and nutrition started about eight years ago when I went to work as a writer and editor for a prominent alternative medicine doctor (Julian Whitaker, MD) in Newport Beach, California. New to the world of vitamins, supplements, and nutritious eating, I quickly learned that food can truly be medicine and what we put into our bodies has a huge impact on our health.A few years back, I had the amazing opportunity to help edit and test recipes for a diet and weight loss book and it was then that I realized how much I enjoyed cooking and tinkering with recipes. Now that I have children of my own, it’s more important to me than ever to find tasty, fun, and—most important—healthy dishes to feed my family.
Because I’m a stay-at-home mom with two crazy kids under the age of two and a half, I’m always on the lookout for simple recipes that require minimal prep time and ingredients that I actually have on hand in the cupboard or fridge. If you’re expecting fancy pants entrees such as Duck a l'Orange or Liver Pâté, you have come to the wrong place. However, if you like good food that is good for you, stick around and see what I have to say.
I look forward to sharing all sorts of recipes, cooking tips, fun food facts, and more with you.Until next time,
