Welcome back! Thanks for bearing with me through this awkward beginner food blogger stage (because you’re totally here for me and not the cookies that are waiting at the end of this post, right? Don’t answer that…). Anyways, while I’ve got you here, let’s chat a minute. 

Nowadays, it seems like healthy eating has taken on a whole new (and more complicated) meaning.
