TASTY TUESDAY (ON A WEDNESDAY)
Four months ago my pantry simply had dried spices/ herbs, one type of cooking oil, and I cooked only a few times a week (and those were mediocre meals at best, supplemented with lots of processed foods). Now I look in my pantry and I have multiple oils and vinegars, a stock pile of seasonings and root vegetables, I discovered the wonderfulness of fresh herbs, I cook with my cast iron set now instead of letting it collect dust and I know more about casein and anti-oxidants then I ever thought possible. And when I look back at all of this- all the hours I spent in researching, dropping out of school before it even started because I realized nutrition was my passion, at how my trips to the grocery are more educated now- and I can't help but be proud of myself. The hours I put in and the decisions I have made- to better both Nate and I's life.
Hopefully four months from now I can look back on this post and have the same sense of pride- that I have made even more progress. Maybe I will finally conquer my aversion to tofu, and actually buy and cook some seitan? Who knows. But I'm looking forward to all of it ♥
