Instead of cooking, how about food preparation?
Instead of rigidly following a recipe, what about having a look at the real food available to you and saying, “how can I combine these foods to make something delicious?”
If you bake so you can have “treats” or snacks, what other foods could you begin to enjoy that would be a treat or snack?
Make a list of all the foods you love that are good for you and figure out creative ways to recombine them!
The possibilities are endless. Share your great ideas with others. Our creativity can be contagious. We need to
get out of the ruts we’ve formed for ourselves.
One client shared a new adaptation of some of my raw chocolate ideas: mix organic peanut butter, raw cacao powder and honey. Roll it into a snake formation (like when we make play dough snakes with our kids). Store it in the fridge and cut off a piece as needed for your super delicious, nutritious snack! My adaptation would be to add come coconut oil to that mixture! Play with it. Make it your own. Be creative. Think differently!
