Repeat after me, "I will not be intimidated with creating new healthy recipes."
Did you say it?
Now do it!
I never enjoyed cooking before I changed my eating lifestyle. I love it now, and do you know why?
Let me tell you.
I know EXACTLY what I'm consuming, the ingredients and seasonings. No wondering if there is poison (literally) in my foods due to toxic preservatives and additives.
I can make a complete meal in 15-30 minutes time, from cutting vegetables to sitting down to eat.
I used to not cook because I had convinced myself it was too much work and took too long. That was a lie, at least the way I cook.
I never imagined experimenting with foods, as I didn't want to waste anything. Now I truly enjoy experimenting and I've not wasted a single ounce of an ingredient because I've not created anything that was not good. All it takes is a little imagination.
Take my lunch today for example. I had leftover CauliFredo from my experimentation the other day. I had just a tiny bit of zucchini noodles left, but a larger appetite. What to do, what to do?
I cooked up a serving of quinoa in one pan. In another pan I put the rest of the zucchini noodles and about a cup of fresh spinach with a ¼ cup of water. I also warmed up the CauliFredo. When it was all done, I mixed it all together and added some ground flax seed on top and Voila!
15 minutes total time, a delicious lunch and I finished full and satisfied.
