Hi! Thanks for stopping by Chocolate Covered Lily Beans! I started this blog to document my transformation into a healthier lifestyle through eating, activity and social awareness. You can read more about my first steps in my Getting Healthy Page, journey to the half marathon. I’ve come a long way from boozing every weekend in college and eating dominos pepperoni pizza late night, and I only hope to continue moving in the right direction. I tend to document what is important to me in the moment, whether that be a meal or visiting a local farm. I also like to talk about current food issues facing Americans today because we seemed to be kept in the dark on many of these topics.
What is a Chocolate Covered Lily Bean???? Well long story shot, when I created my blog my favorite cat in the world had just died (Lily), and I love chocolate and beans. Simple enough but it is kind of a mouthful.
I currently live in Silver Spring, Maryland with my husband, Nick and our polydactyl cat, Sicily or Sissy Pants for short. We follow a mainly vegetarian diet and have special occasion meat products purchased from local farmers in the area or from companies that we know and trust. I mean who really want to worry about Salmonella from their raw chicken anyway?
