Its the holiday season. I have been rushing around trying to get stuff done and I feel like I am really not accomplishing a whole lot. But i am eating a great deal. And cooking a great deal.
I have given up fast food.
A few weeks ago i was feeling so tired and exhausted that the only real energy i could muster was to go buy a hamburger or a taco and pop some instant oatmeal in the microwave.
And one day when i was thinking of hopping in my car i just had to stop and wonder "But what do i really want to eat?"
Cauliflower was the answer. So i epicurioused a recipe for creamed cauliflower and went to the store and got a healthy looking head. And made it.
A few days later I wanted Cabbage. So i've been making a delicious ginger honey cabbage with green onions and potatoes. And Green Pea soup.
I am not good at creating menus on the spur of the moment. But i am learning to build food around what i most want to eat. And what a novelty! I think we are taught to check in with ourselves about so many things. Somehow food has not been something i've been listening to my body about. It feels good to start.
What have you been craving?
