Introducing the Naked South with Charlotte Abrams
Welcome to the very first post in my new column, The Naked South. When I decided to launch a food blog with recipes representative of my lifestyle, I thought I had it all figured out. And I did … except for the name. I knew I wanted it to be simple, fresh, rooted in the South, and have a common thread of clean eating woven throughout. After weeks (okay, months) of agony and daily harassment by my friends, husband, sister, editor, publisher, web content manager, and cashier at the grocery store, The Naked South was born.
My goal is to teach, inspire, and empower you to make small changes toward a healthier diet while enjoying all the deliciousness food has to offer. The healthy eating “rules” are always changing and everyone’s body has a different relationship with food, so I focus on variety and moderation. No rules, no judgment, just inspired food your body will appreciate.
I hope you enjoy following this blog as much as I’m going to enjoy researching, developing, and testing these recipes for you. XOXO — Charlotte
