My Food Style

New Year - New Resolution

With the New Year upon us, you may have the chance to look back to remember how far you have come. IC presents all sorts of challenges, but like the New Year, IC gives you a chance to start from scratch, an opportunity to reevaluate how IC affects your life.

In my first year of running this blog/website, I have learned that IC has not discouraged as many wills as it has starved. It has been my mission to meet you where the problem begins. I am still determined to feed you and therefore, this New Year, I present a resolution for all those with IC. May you never miss another party, may you begin dining out whenever you please, may you create a cookbook this very day, and most importantly may My Food Style be a stepping-stone towards a better life!
