Have you ever felt confused about what the heck you are supposed to eat? Assuming you say yes, as most people do, you've come to the right place!
Thank you for visiting Fresh Food Perspectives!
I started this site in 2007 to have a place to answer frequently asked nutrition questions that I received from friends, family and clients. I really enjoying simplifying complicated nutrition messages so they are easy to understand and inspiring people to live healthfully one decision at a time.
I believe healthy eating is a journey that allows you jump on the band wagon anywhere that fits you and ride in any direction you want to go. What I mean is, you don't just wake up one day and know exactly how to eat the right quantity of food, how to include whole, local or organic foods, or maybe even how to prepare healthy foods. It's a process and that's ok. I believe you should take your time with healthy living and adjust to each new change as it comes.
My favorite place to be is in the kitchen, cooking, writing, or dreaming. If cooking is not your thing, I hope some of my time in the kitchen will make it easier for you to prepare something tasty at some point.
One of my other favorite places to be is at any farmer's market or local restaurant. Local food inspires me and that hopefully shines through in my writing.
I am a wife to a head high school football coach (thus my frequent use of the hashtag #IamTammyTaylor), mother to two boys (ages 2 and 7 months), and a college instructor at the University of North Florida. All these things keep my life rather exciting (especially in the fall) and I love it. Adding motherhood to my list of job descriptions has caused me to grow in ways I never knew were coming.
I look forward to learning and growing, right along with you, and sharing those lessons with you.
