Welcome! To most likely no one.
Writing your first blog post feels a little bit sad. No one is reading. Your website is a mess. You have no archives, no recipes, no advice or insight to offer. It’s like the Sahara Desert. I have never been to the desert, but I imagine it would feel something like this website does with one lonely blog post. Hopefully that will all change soon! Through this blog I plan to share recipes, research, opinions, and other wellness information. Just like you I have been on the road to find a healthier lifestyle, and I want to share all that I have learned and continue to learn with you!
So why “Everyday Sierra?” Because I am an everyday, pretty regular person. And this blog is for everyday, regular you. You don’t have to be a scientist or fitness guru to understand the information and tips on this blog. You don’t have to be a five star chef to follow these recipes.
I love learning about health. I love learning about nutrients. I love learning about how and what those nutrients are doing in the body. That is why I majored and have bachelors degrees in both nutrition and biochemistry – because the body does some really amazing stuff! That being said, the career path that I have chosen has pretty much nothing to do with either. And that is 100% okay. I like what I do. But I will never stop being interested in health, wellness, and the effect on the human body.
Which is why I am here! Writing my very first lonely blog post. At the time of writing this, I have been out of school for a few years, and things have already changed so much. I remember my entry level nutrition classes and learning about Celiac Disease. I remember learning about how sufferers of this disease could not eat foods containing gluten due to an unfortunate immune response that attacks the small intestine when ingested. I had never heard of it before. I never heard of people who could not eat gluten. Now “gluten free” is a buzz word recognizable by pretty much anyone who has been to a grocery store or restaurant in recent years and has become one of the most popularly followed diets of this decade.
What does a gluten free diet do for those who do not suffer from Celiac Disease? That is one of the reasons this blog is here. To share with you! Share research, articles, and science backed information (plus my own opinions) about current health trends. And of course to share recipes and nutrition information, because it all starts with what we are putting into our bodies. I love to eat, I love to cook, and I really enjoy creating and testing out new recipes. And if you love to eat and you love to cook, then you know that sharing with others is really what it is all about.
So that is it for now. For future posts, look forward to some real information.
