About Me – The “Almost” Skinny Chef

My name is Sarah and I am 26 years old. I love to cook, and love to eat. I am a professionally trained chef (but I don’t work in a professional kitchen). I live in Northern California, with my Partner/Wifey Poo of 2 years, Her name is Beth. We have an adorable dog named Scarlet who is also 2 years old. I cook dinner at least 5 nights a week, every week…on $200 a month. We eat healthy, fresh, and delicious food.

A little bit more about us…

Heres what we love:
– Coffee (its how we met, we became best friends over many cups of coffee, and fell in love over you guessed it more coffee)
– Our Dog Scarlet 🙂

– Spontaneous Adventures
– Star Gazing
– Time with Friends
– Photography

– FOOD! (its a good thing I found a girl who appreciates good food!)
– Crafts (well Beth more than me…but I have been know to do a craft project or two…)
– Our LGBT Community 🙂
– Each other ❤

When I started this blog over a year ago I was at my highest weight of my life. 186 lbs. Standing at only 5’4″ tall that is quite a lot of weight. I was at risk for type II diabetes and heart disease and was altogether unhappy with the way I looked and the way I felt.

Now thanks to a year of eating healthier and some exercise with my wonderful partner, I am about 160 lbs. Its a slow process but for me this has never been about “losing weight” but about changing my eating habits and the way I treat my body.

I think thats pretty much it, now that you know me, I hope you will enjoy my blog, and follow my journey as I continue the road to a healthy weight, and healthy life!

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. When I clicked over to see what your blog was about I was delighted. Just last week I googled “eating healthy on a budget.” So I’m happy to read any tips you have to pass along. (Though I’m cooking for 5, so I’m sure I’ll spend more than you.)
