About Kathy

I’m so glad you’ve dropped by for a little visit. Let me fill you in on why I created this website and how it can help.

Confused about what healthy diet looks like?

It’s no wonder since there is so much conflicting information everywhere telling you what healthy is. Together we’ll tease apart this information and resolve the conflicts by going to the core of what’s important, what is the best possible proof of what a healthy diet looks like. That core is historical proof and it points to traditional diets as the best possible diet. Before we dig in let’s get to know each other a little first.

Nice to meet you …

My name is Kathy and I live just outside of Austin.  I’ve had a long career as a computer programmer. And I have a confession … I’m a reluctant cook. I wasn’t born with a spoon in my hand. I didn’t cook alongside my Mama when I was growing up. I only really developed an interest in cooking as a young mother trying to find healthier food for my family. It’s been a long circuitous journey to learn both how to cook and what to cook with lots of mistakes and course corrections along the way. I am still learning a lot about how to cook well. What to cook has become pretty clear in the past few years. And what I’ve learned through trial and error can help you and your family.

Let’s become ‘Modern Day Granny Women’ together …

I don’t mean growing old, though age is gaining on me, I don’t know about you ;-). What I mean is let’s learn to make our food the old-fashioned way, the traditional way. Granny knew how to make everything from scratch. Granny used farm fresh ingredients in her cooking and we would be a lot better off if we did too. She made biscuits and gravy, fresh sourdough breads, sauerkraut and pickles, hams and roasts, and homemade desserts. Her food was delicious as well as nutritious. Her family and neighbors were mostly free of the modern diseases we suffer from. Illness’s that are caused by poor eating were largely unknown to all but the poorest of the poor in your Grandmother’s day.

Let’s learn to be Granny Women in the midst of the hustle and bustle of modern life. We’ll need good planning and good habits to get there. Let’s build them together and keep each other company.
