You watch the cooking shows on TV and the food looks great, but let’s face it – real life doesn’t come with beurre blanc. Real life is waiting until everyone is grumpy and irritable and hasn’t done their homework and then slapping some hot dogs diced up with macaroni in the microwave. Real life is survival.
Maybe that’s where the extra 30 pounds came from. I see myself as a bear saving up fat for lean times. A fifteen minute chef who covers up guilt with potato chips and dessert cereal.

So how funny it felt to find myself in the second row of a healthy cooking class (3010 Weight Loss for Life), raising my hand, taking notes, asking questions, what?? Healthy fried rice? Healthy Orange Chicken? Am I really going to make this?
Um. Yes. Yes I did. And it was amazing. Even without a sous chef, I knocked it out in the 15 minutes before Zoe’s bus came. She walks in the door, I put a spoon in her mouth before she realizes it’s healthy. “Yum. That’s good,” she says. It is…
And good for me. I’ve lost 22 pounds and feel better than I’ve felt in years. My idea about cooking is changing. Even people who slam things together fast like I do can eat healthy. The next 30/10 cooking class, I’m sitting in the front row.
