cooked

I am fully on board with the four-part docuseries, Cooked, from Michael Pollan on Netflix.

In my own experience, taking control of the food I make is empowering–not only for my health but overall wellbeing. As Pollan eloquently shows, cooking has a hand in so many parts of life. I feel it in everything from my mood, to my creativity, generosity and even financial health.

Awhile back I went to hear a talk given by Mark Bittman. The state of our country’s food system/politics/policy is deeply disturbing/infuriating/depressing. His advice? Create your own personal food policy. What is food to you? And do your best to eat whatever that is with the resources you have.

 

+ RECIPES I’M LOVING RIGHT NOW:

Spaghetti with tuna and caper sauce | super easy weeknight meal, also great with zucchini noodles

GP’s favorite chicken salad | yummy snack or light dinner with my favorite crackers

Raw almond pulp fudge | good way to use leftover nut pulp from making milk; instead of pressing it into brownies, I just roll them into balls and freeze for easier eating.

Coconut water kefir | I’m experimenting with homemade kefir, using this starter, Waiola coconut water, raspberry puree and lemon juice–so good.
