I'm Rachel, and I'm on a mission to get healthy! So what about me? This Texican (Texas Mexican American) is challenging herself to get this lifetime weight off her! I know the challenge will take time and I'm prepared for that!

I also LOVE food! So, I have decided to make this blog all about delicious HEALTHY food.

Married to a Pakistani, this Texican has fused and my palette is now used to colorful, flavorful, savory, sweet delicacies from the east.

Mix those wonderful eastern flavors with my southern Tex-Mex flavors and a brilliant array of new possibilities are at hand! Stop by my blog and see what's cooking in my kitchen.

    So good to hear from you!.... it seems like our paths don't cross so much since the new layout design started!

    Hope that you are doing better than Aggie football right now emoticon ...I watched this last one (LSU) with two Aggie brothers of mine... Yoicks! We all still thought the Ags were going to pull it out there at the end... Oh well, Wait til next year, right?

    Hi April! Thanks for dropping by! You asked what primal is. It's basically a whole food diet consisting of meat, poultry, seafood and veggies. The plan largely eliminates grain products, sugars and seed oils. I've had a lot of success following this food plan in the past. :-)
