I consume recipes voraciously. Surprise, surprise. I have an infatuation with trying every method ever invented in my constant and futile search for “the best”. Of course I have my staples, but I’m always reaching. This can be tricky, trying new recipes all the time, because how do you trust it’s gonna turn out okay? That’s a whole lotta faith. Some people don’t work like that. My mom, for example, has her greatest hits, like REALLY great hits, and keeps them locked into her playlist. She always knows she’ll receive accolades and OMG’s after making something, because she played the favorites up-front.
One of her greatest is this orzo pasta with vegetables and feta that I don’t eat anymore. But, I can steal the best part, the roasted vegetables, and let them shine in their own glory. This. I made it as one of the dishes for my mom on her birthday a few weeks ago. I play it on repeat often, and I hope you will, too.
We cannot make sustainable change with food, our bodies, or our surrounding habits until we honestly explore and get curious about our relationship with each of them. Mindset change is not easy, but so, so worth it.
Being healthy starts with learning to cook simple foods in easy, delicious ways with approachable and practical recipes and techniques.
Our health begins with properly nourishing our bodies with nutrient-dense foods. I believe in bio-individuality: each person requires different types and amounts of food to feel their best. Learn how to eat intuitively for the rest of your life!
