Welcome Healthy Obsessionners!
My name is Boussy (short for Bosaina), and I am the person behind this blog. Aside from my "real" healthy obsessions, I actually have a normal full time job that keeps me busy on most days. I also have 2 awesome boys and a lucky naturally-fit husband who thinks butter and sugar are two ingredients that should be used on EVERYTHING.
A few years ago I joined Weight Watchers and reached goal in 4 months. Since then, I became increasingly obsessed with everything health and nutrition related (hence the name for my blog). While on my journey, I realized two very important things that had to happen if I wanted to lead a healthy lifestyle for good:
1) I had to food prep. Meaning plan and make all my meals and snacks ahead of time
2) I had to change the way I cooked in order to make my meals leaner and more satiating without compromising on taste.
Immediately I noticed how hard it was to juggle work, a family, and a new way of eating and cooking. And in no time, I found myself in need of recipes that are quick, easy and yummy enough that my family wouldn't notice that I am cooking any differently (because there was just no way I was going to make separate meals for me and them! Ain't no body got time for that!!)
So with the encouragement of my family and friends, I decided to put together a blog where I would share all the healthy recipes that I come up with so that others can maybe get inspired and start using some of the tricks (both food and non-food related) that I post to help them get on the path to great health. You'll see all my recipes are healthy, diet and Weight Watchers friendly, as well as gluten-free, dairy free and mostly sugar free. And since I'm big on flavors, I made sure to share recipes that are big on flavors, texture and have great health benefits.
On here, you'll find all my readings, teachings, experiences and acquired knowledge in one spot. I wanted to share everything with the world because ultimately, I would love it if my blog touches others in ways that would inspire them to turn their life around the way I turned mine: from young, overweight, & naive, to young, fit, and smart (and a bit obsessed). I couldn't be prouder!!
