My First Post!

Welcome to my blog! I am ashamed to admit that not that long ago, I barely knew what a blog was, let alone contemplated creating one of my very own. Yet here I am!!

I recently stumbled upon a number of great food blogs that I have enjoyed reading immensely and I especially love looking at all of the great photos. I have always found that photo's of food inspire me to make certain dishes and that you really do eat with your eyes. I try never to buy cook books that don't have pictures!

My passion is trying find or create recipes that are healthy, low calorie, but still delicious. I think I succeed a good deal of the time, but every now and again I will certainly succumb to my comfort food cravings. I am a bit of a professional dieter, mainly because I enjoy feeling healthy and fit, so I thought I would try and share some of the recipes that I find with other people who are interested in healthy, delicious food.

You may be wondering about the inspiration for the name of this blog and credit must go to my dear husband. I asked him what he thought it should be called and he came up with "bear necessities" almost immediately. We affectionately call ourselves "the bears" due to some silly nicknames we have for one another and bears have to eat! I certainly look forward to sharing what we eat and what I cook with anyone who is interested :)
