Y’all may have noticed there’s a little less of me to love these days. I have lost 40 pounds, and best of all—I’ve maintained it! It was hard work because I was used to eatin’ traditional Southern meals cooked in delicious fats that just aren’t good in big quantities.
Since my weight loss journey began, I’ve learned this wonderful word “moderation.” It was never a diet; it was a lifestyle change. I realized that if I ate a little healthier more often, that I could still enjoy some of my old favorites. Whoever it was that said “ too much of a good thing isn’t always good” was right. But now I’m on the right track to becoming healthier each and every day.
In honor of my new lifestyle of moderation, I’m sharin’ two versions of some of my classic recipes. Something old represents the original version of some of my most popular recipes, and something new represents my new, healthier take on life—and recipes! I’ve had friends try my old and new recipes side-by-side, and most couldn’t tell the difference. I dare you to try both and see what you think!
