I am slowing moving What’s for Dinner Doc to www.MyBajaKitchen.com. I hope you’ll join me at the new location and subscribe via email so you don’t miss any part of this adventure in the Baja.
Take a walk with me around the neighborhood. Loreto Bay, Nopolo, BCS, Mexico.
The new site will focus on more traditional recipes from Baja Mexico with a healthy twist and a Mediterrean flare. It occurred to me while living in Mexico between the desert and the Sea of Cortez that the climate and foods grown there are very similar to the Mediterranean. We have evidence that a diet rich in seafood, fish, legumes, vegetables, fruits and olive oil is a healthy alternative to the SAD, Standard American Diet. Unfortunately, Mexicans are now suffering from the SAD as well. Mexico, with her close ties to the U.S. has seen a marked increase in childhood obesity, diabetes and heart disease. I believe that Baja cuisine can improve on traditional culinary themes by using fresh local produce, healthy fats and the abundance of seafood.
And you know that there will be stories to tell as I stumble through life in Mexico with my terrible Español and my grand ideas about healthy living.
As many of you who have moved your blogs to WordPress.org know, it’s sometimes a painful transition. I have to reestablish my blog relationships, learn new programming skills, and find the time to create new amazing recipes. I will be moving recipes and some photos from here to there but I plan to improve the recipes and their presentation. There is a cookbook in the works as well and I hope you will share your hits and misses with any recipe I post.
PLEASE COMMENT. I welcome any and all criticism in My Baja Kitchen.
Grab an apron and follow me to my Baja kitchen.
