Hi, my name is Kaycie. I have been working in customer service for Hodgson Mill since December of 2012. I have always loved cooking and baking, ever since I was a little girl, helping my Mom in the kitchen. As a former philosophy student I am not ashamed to admit that I often over-think everything I do, but I recently realized that the more I think about the food I eat the better I feel. I am passionate about the idea of conscious eating. Conscious eating is simply taking time to truly enjoy and appreciate what you cook and consume.
I have a goal of setting a positive example in my community by shopping, eating and preparing food in a healthful and Earth-friendly. I want to promote harmony within my body and in the world around me. I don’t always succeed, but working for Hodgson Mill really helps me stay on track. I enjoy spending my work day helping people learn about new products and recipes. Many of our customers have serious dietary restrictions or specific preferences, so I learn a lot about cooking and baking from every person I talk to. When I am able to share useful information with a mother of a child with multiple food allergies, and hear the relief in her voice when I tell her that our products will be safe for her child, I feel a real sense of pride and joy in what I do.
I am so excited to have the opportunity to become a guest blogger for Hodgson Mill. Around here, Hodgson Mill products have become a part of our daily lives. My entire household, which consists of my husband, my younger brother, our four pets, and whichever friend is currently stopping by, loves sitting down to the healthy and yummy treats I whip up while doing some off-the-clock “product research.” I am thrilled now to have an outlet to share the delicious, and more importantly healthy, recipes I discover with such a broad and receptive audience. I really appreciate the food blog culture of sharing ideas and experiences, and I look forward to hearing feedback from Hodgson Mill Blog followers.
I hope you will enjoy my posts. I will cater more to the folks who enjoy vegetarian and Vegan dishes, because I recently made the choice to become a vegetarian. I also plan to explore gluten-free baking and share my discoveries with all of you. Together we can prove that having a healthy relationship with food does not have to mean giving up what we enjoy, it can be a fun and creative learning experience! In the words of George Bernard Shaw, “There is no sincerer love than the love of food.” Let’s spread the love!
