Little of me…

Due to changes in my life, I had gained a lot of weight (around 40 pounds to be exact) that the previous 5 years I had worked so hard to burn off.  As my 28th birthday fell on my doorstep, I thrust the door open to a new world of healthy eating and exercise.  As a child in the Midwestern States of America, I had been brought up on the traditional Standard American Diet (SAD). Half a year into university, I began investigating healthy eating and touching upon exercise. Since that first day, I have always been a healthy eater but likewise still have that junk food eater/drinker hidden inside of me.  Basically I’m a naturally chubby girl living in a skinny body. This basically means I have to work for it instead of just being given it, which is probably around 90% of the average people.

At last, Yin and Yang must meet again…  From here on out I intend on working on educating myself and taking you along the path with me.  It’s hard to change a lifetime worth of destructive living but it is worth it in the long run. Thankfully I wear a lot of hats in my life at such an early age, I am a recipe developer, avid cook & baker, photographer, runner, gym bunny, eco-friendly advocate, loving wife to the most amazing husband (Genki Husband) and loving momma to my two furry babies.

Please note I am not a certified doctor nor a nutritionist so all the contents of the Genki Kitty website are my own opinions based upon professional advice and research. It is a place where likeminded people can come together and share experiences & recipes to better all of our lives together. It takes one person to spark an idea but a group to make it happen. Let’s make it happen together in a caring, non-judgmental are to make the world a healthier, happier place to live.

  2. Hello,

    I was wondering how your saurkruat turned out?? I follow another recipe for mixed vegies/salt and it just sits 3 days,,,I’ve got yours brewing right now.

    • It didn’t turn out so great. We figured it needed to be closed tightly instead of having a sauerkraut jar. Our kitchen is too moist, so there was mold in the end and couldn’t eat it. So sad! I’m sure it will turn out in a different environment and also in a tightly closed jar.

  3. Too bad!! This is day 4 and no mold or bubbling, so not sure(thought there was to be some bubbling action?)my last 2 batches did. Also my recipe says to have a lid on, but not tightly, because of possible explosions(bubbling). Thanks again for info, will try mine out today and maybe just stick with recipe for now 🙂
