Shake it up
I am looking to shake things up a bit on here.I think I am going to be asking for some guests recipe posts on here. I think it will be nice to give a little variety on this site. Another thing I think I am going to do was suggested to me by someone is updating old posts. Like, take new photos.
When I was looking back on some those older recipe posts here on Seduction, yes I was learning photography, and yes I was using my iPhone to take those photos, but YIKES! Wow! What was I thinking?? Ohh, wait, I was in that cast and bored out of my mind that was it. Seriously, the photos should be replaced. The recipes I will be updating I think will be:
That is just to start and see how the new photos, and also update the posts too. So we will see how well the photos look when I re-do them. Call it the makeover of the recipe photos!
What can I say, we girls like makeovers? Why do you think we change our hair or redecorate our living spaces. It is because we can, we are women and that is what we do.
Caprese Stuffed Zucchini Boats
Speaking of makeovers, I am in a constant makeover of my body with DIETS! It another girl thing, we are never happy with our weight. I think I have been on a diet since I was 10 years old.
I can ever not being on a diet. I am a plus size woman, I know this, been that way my whole life. I know how to eat healthily, my issue is the exercise, I know that.
I try to motivate myself, but I will be honest. I hate exercising by myself. Try to find friends, I get excited but they back out, with, “the kid has soccer, I am meeting my boyfriend.” Stuff like that. Let’s be honest, we all settle on an excuse when comes to working out.
Anyway, I am back to eating light and healthy again. Plus when we do have warm weather, the last thing I want to eat is heavy. That is what is perfect for this zucchini recipe, it healthy, it combines my favorite, which is the Caprese salad, and it just perfect for hot weather and a diet as well.
