Welcome to WonkyWonderful…where the food is quick, easy, nutritious and most importantly tasty.
My name is Nicole and I am a frazzled working mom that is barely keeping it together. I just wanted to get that out of the way first thing.
The internet is full of perfectly styled and designed families, homes, kitchens and lives. You are NOT going to find that here! Far from it.
No I do not own a white suede couch. It is an absolute impossibility for my kitchen sink to remain empty for longer than 2.2 seconds. And there are days that I resent the fact that I have to feed a tiny human 3+ meals a day. I am a coffee-dependent Mom just trying to make good food and lifestyle choices while juggling whatever life throws my way.
What you will find here are recipes that are nutrient based, whole foods, made from scratch and EASY. I am a busy Mom so I understand not having 3 hours to slave away in the kitchen preparing a four course meal for my family.
There is no judgement, righteousness or pressure here. Eat as well as you are able. Buy grass-fed, organic and/or pasture-raised when you can. Sometimes it’s not possible due to availability and/or budget. That’s okay. Make the better choice when you can and all the other times. . .good enough is good enough.
Choosing to make food for your family using whole ingredients means you are already winning! Don’t be too hard on yourself.
Perfection is not the goal here. The goal is to do our best for ourselves and our families with the resources and abilities that we have. And I’m here to help you do that. My goal is to give you nutrient packed recipes that are quick, simple, delicious and affordable.
Whole Food For The Whole Family . . . That’s What It’s About.
Cook Life To The Fullest,
Many of my recipes do fit in with certain diets. I label these recipes accordingly for informational purposes. WonkyWonderful is not a specific diet focused recipe site. But if you are following an eating plan, more power to ya! I hope my recipes help.
More about my experience with dieting. . .
I don’t like the term intuitive eating because sometimes my intuition tells me to eat an entire chocolate cake. I got issues 😆
I’m not about this diet or that diet. Nothing against certain diets and lifestyles, they just never work for me long term. I do label all of my recipes according to the diet that they fit. But, I’m not here to tell you how or how not to eat.
I’m just here for the food ← my life motto
