Happy New Year Everyone!
I thought I’d start off my first post by telling you how I came up with my Blog name: Noble Nourishment.
Writing out my New Years Resolutions, I came up with a potentially life altering list. Not for mankind or anything; but on a personal level. One resolution was to utilise my food obsession and make more of an effort to create wonderful dishes. Another was to start up a journal, lest I go senile (I swear, I fear it’s already starting; I am more absent minded with each day that passes).
It occurred to me that writing a food blog can serve to honour each of those resolutions, in an uncharacteristically (for me) efficient manner… combined with my love for writing, it couldn’t be more perfect! I haven’t written much lately, which, I have to admit has resulted in a rather malnourished soul.
We are all well versed in how to feed our bodies to function properly. Unfortunately, making sure your soul doesn’t starve doesn’t have a “how to” manual (unless those “Books for Dummies” folk have cottoned on!). This is why I said my New Years List could be potentially life altering. It’s like forcing enrichment upon myself; I’d recommend it to anyone! At the risk of sounding dramatic, the alternative just seems too tragic to comprehend.
Food, of course, is the primary form of nourishment; everybody needs to be fed in order to live and function. I’m starting to realise that I need to nourish my mind in order to really live though; not just function. For me, this can be done by making tasty food, reading great books and writing with passion and enthusiasm. Essentially, just making time for doing things I enjoy and not feeling guilty about it.
Hence the Blog name Noble Nourishment. My surname is Noble and this blog will be a tale of what I get up to in order to be truly Nourished. I have come across some wonderful food blogs in recent times and can only aspire to create something that gives even half the joy to read.
