In case you haven’t figured it out yet I have never been a “foodie.”  I have never really cared for food, rarely planned for it, never payed much attention to it, and certainly was never this dedicated to food.  But I have become what I see to be a “food ninja”  Allow me to explain…

You see, as long as I have a handle on either my home-life or my work-life than I am able to maintain a reasonable level of sanity.  Currently, work-life is happening at break-neck speed, and home-life is practically in chaos, thus I am just trying hard to stay above water on all fronts.

My high level of commitment to have my family eating real food distinctly obvious to me recently.  This is because when life gets out of control one would think that the resolve to eat well may be the first thing to go out the window.  However, I am pleased to report that is not the case.  I have a meal plan posted and real groceries purchased, and the determination of a, well, something that would be really determined, like a Ninja.  Yeah, a real food ninja is what I have become.  That, and I’m lightning quick too. 😀
