On My Mind :: Cooking

Cooking has been the first casualty of our busy summer.  I know how important it is for my family to eat a home cooked, whole foods, plant based diet.  I know that studies show that when we cook healthy food at home, we drop our likelihood of obesity.  I know that it is one of the very best things I can do for the planet.

Somehow I just need to get all those messages over to the motivation part of my brain so that I can make more food like this strawberry rhubarb pie with a nut crust (from the Clean Food cookbook).  I will be at the Farmer's Market this afternoon seeking inspiration.  Hopefully, one meal at a time, I will move my family back to what is best for us.

How do you get motivated to cook healthy, home-cooked meals?

Hello, it's nice to meet you..and I would like to add it took time, first I compiled a notebook of recipes of foods we love, from there I compiled a grocery list of all ingredients to make those recipes...over time I purchased all those ingredients for our pantry /stockpile..and even though this was weeks/months of work..in the end I can make from scratch/ cook any meal we enjoy...
Hope that helps...

For us the motivation comes by our limited income these days. It costs so much less to cook from scratch and utilize ALL leftovers avoiding waste.

I menu plan week in and week out. If I don't things don't happen.
