Health-Bent Headquarters has relocated. If you’ve looked at our last few posts or followed our Facebook page at all you may already be aware. And what started as “we’ll get new appliances” turned into “let’s gut the entire kitchen and start over.” The good news is that (eventually) we’ll have a kitchen that is very much like what we’ve dreamed about for a long time. To us foodies, this is very exciting; you understand. It’s gonna be Christmas in July.
The bad news is: in order to afford this kitchen…we are doing all the work ourselves. Sure it’s kinda fun and rewarding, to a point…but it also has meant neglecting the blog and missing out on the start of bountiful seasonal produce. We also won’t have our garden this year. The transition from cooking and photographing to tiling and installing has certainly taken it’s toll on our diets. It’s hard not to use it as an excuse to just grab the fastest thing you can shove in your mouth to keep going. And as we all know, without the ability to cook it’s damn near impossible to eat the way we like to eat.
This is only temporary…but we’re definitely longing to get back in the kitchen and eat real foods. We’ve always said that the benefits of the diet isn’t necessarily in 100% compliance but in the power that comes with knowing the difference. We will return…and we should have a better space to create recipes and photograph them when it’s all said and done.
We’re grateful that the index of recipes has seemed to keep people coming to the site…and we thank the Foodee for still linking to us.
As romantic as “Paleo” is…this is 2011 and let’s be honest, I think we all have to admit that a modern kitchen is more helpful to your healthy diet than a campfire (more to add to the Paleo reenactment argument). You guys know we’ve never been after a recreation anyway…and I think most of our readers agree. After all, a kitchen is just a tool; and all tools are Paleo.
We are hopefully less than a month away from completion. Stay tuned and thanks again.
