It's definately been more challenging than i expected. The food has been amazing and even though i thought i was quite a good cook it's made me realise that i've been stuck in a cooking rut as i'm sure many of us are. I've become so used to the way i eat i barely noticed if it has been right for me and my family. I have always tried to cook healthy meals but how does the food actually suit us and our lives? Am i making sense? For example since i've be paying attention to my food more i've realised that i feel unwell after breakfast every day. I've been eating mostly the same breakfast for years and have never even noticed this before. But now i realise that it's just not right for me at this place in my life. So i'm on the hunt for a new breakfast and stepping away from old habits that no longer work for me.
There is something truly relaxing and peaceful about making meals from scratch. Cleaning the vegetables, rinsing the beans and mixing the ingredients together is almost meditative. Pure, simple, nourishing food. No packets, no wrappers, no artificial flavourings, no preservatives. Just REAL food that is good for you, makes you feel healthy, brings you joy, makes you smile and nourishes your body. Shouldn't everything in life make you feel like this?
