  • Guys, we need to  talk recipe paralysis. Yes, it’s a THING. 
We’ve never been more flooded with “inspiration” and simultaneously paralyzed in the kitchen. It’s an interesting thing.

When I think back to when I was younger, I remember the rotation of family meals. After a few weeks, the same recipes came back. And it didn’t bother me. In fact, I appreciated the tradition, found it comforting.

I think about how this constant need for NEWness and variety may be taking away from our family traditions.

You should be able to name 5 recipes off the top of your head that you make for yourself or your family right now. If you can’t, then this is your first assignment to building a family recipe bank.

The goal is to create a list of 5 (ideally 10) recipes. Think of them like the “little black dresses” of your weekly dinners. They don’t fail.

Criteria: 🌿Must be easy to prepare
🌿Must have made it before and gotten good reviews
🌿Must be nutritious 
When you’re done, stick this list somewhere and whenever you’re feeling stuck, refer to it!  That simple 💕
  • Treat them like flowers and they will stay fresher longer 🌸! Place asparagus and herbs in a tall container with water, cover with a mesh bag and store in the fridge.// Traitez-les comme des fleurs et ils demeureront frais plus longtemps 🌹. Placez vos herbes fraîches ou asperges dans un contenant avec un peu d’eau, couvrez-le d’un petit sac et conservez-les au frigo.
  • What kind of fats are in your kitchen?

As a general rule, you should aim to get MOST of your fat from whole foods (such as nuts, seeds and avocados) SOME of your fat from unprocessed oils (such as EVOO, virgin coconut oil, avocado oil) and the LEAST of your fat from processed, packaged or prepared foods. 🌿

Fat is important for flavour, to help you feel full and for healthy bowel movements among many other things. So having them on hand is key for tasty meals and a happy body 🥑

These are some of my favourite fat-rich foods. Note that I only keep small amounts of nuts and seeds in the pantry, I store the bulk of them in the freezer to maintain freshness. 👍🏻 What are some of your favourite fat-rich foods? .
