Hey y’all, welcome to My Texas Kitchen. A place where I will share lightened up recipes from the Lone Star State. I am a wife, Registered Dietitian, and an amateur cook. I have a passion for creating healthy, tasty recipes. I am blessed to have a husband who serves as my brutally honest taste tester. Clyde, our Bluetick Coonhound, sometimes serves as a taste tester, but he approves of most things.
My goal is to help take some of the uncertainty out of making healthy swaps in your diet by providing delicious and nutritious recipes. You won’t see any overly boiled broccoli on this blog. Join along and we will try out tasty, mostly healthy recipes and maybe a few treats for balance.
My food philosophy is that life is too short to eat bad food. I believe in celebrating the special moments and eating wholesome food the other 80% of the time. My recipes will be tested by my meat and potatoes husband to get his seal of approval. Unless they are sweets or chocolate then it’s all me.
Why I Started My Texas Kitchen
As a Nutrition professional, I wanted my family to have a well-balanced diet full of vegetables, whole grains, and fruits. After a few years of marriage, I learned that is easier said than done. I have challenged myself to create recipes that my hearty Texan will enjoy and will share my results along the way. Maybe you can relate to that with a family member or even yourself. If so, I hope you give my recipes a shot!
We’ll be seeing y’all now. Come back soon!
