What is this!?
Well, it’s a blog, obviously. But what is it about? Good question! It’s about eating, cooking, healthy living, exercise, all with a potentially geeky flavour. Don’t be surprised if tangents on unrelated stuff crops up, too.
Why not? Well, actually, let’s face it; as geeks (or nerds, or… whatever), we can be pretty bad about taking care of ourselves. The image of a gamer sitting on a couch, bottle of Mountain Dew at his side, his face dusted with the remains of a bag of Cheetos is a stereotype for a reason. My hope is that I can help by providing easy options to improve our health and diet.
I love cooking. I love sharing my love for cooking. I love sharing recipes, tips, tricks, and flavours. The only reason I have cable is for the Food Network (and Glee…). I hope I can help other people to love food and cooking, too.
Who are you!?
Well, I’m not a nutritionist or a doctor. Or a chef. Actually, I’m a researcher involved in eye research and stem cells. But I’m passionate about food (and eating!) and trying to lead a healthy lifestyle.
I’m overweight (by about 30 lbs for a ‘healthy’ weight). I recently signed up for a gym, but I know I’ve got a long way to go. Again, hopefully this blog will help.
I’m a ‘gamer’ (though I loathe the term). I love sci-fi, action movies, and Nerf Guns; also anything the guys at loadingreadyrun.com do. Is that enough geek cred?
How’s this gonna work?
I’ll try and post regularly. Sometimes big posts, sometimes small. Some posts will just be recipes, or a summary of a workout. Others may be ‘guides’ to doing things in the kitchen or rants of various sorts. And odds are I’ll go off topic from time to time.
Anyways, hope you like what you see. If you’re on Twitter, this blog’s twitter username is lrn2cookn00b. My personal Twitter is Metcarfre.
Cheers, bon apetit, & etc.!
