Of course, I'll do my best to make sure I still get adequate nutrients in my system (this move is all about health and moderation, after all) and am not completely forsaking my beloved stove and oven. It wasn't a sudden decision, but rather an inclination I've harbored for many weeks; I simply didn't have the urgency to execute change until now.

No more excuses. It's time for positive change.
