We can’t be afraid to try new things. In life or in our kitchens. If you try it and you don’t like it then try something else.
Try not to miss out on the beautiful things life has to offer because you are afraid to try new things. When it comes to trying new foods…your taste buds might thank you! Your body will surely thank you!
When we first decided to take the steps towards eating alkaline as a family I knew there would be some challenges. I was nervous about meal planning and trying new vegetables. Don’t laugh…but I was afraid to try mushrooms lol, now I absolutely love them!
I love food! I really wanted our food to taste good. Who doesn’t want to enjoy their food? The thought of eating only a specific list of foods was once very deterring. I always felt like I couldn’t make anything with these foods. Fast forward two years and it actually makes grocery shopping and cooking much easier. It’s not a guessing game on what I can use. There are certain items that are staples and need to be on hand at all times. For most dishes, I know that I can use a few ingredients to make various things along with a combination of seasonings and spices to get the flavors I want. At first this all may sound harder than it is. You have to get used to it and find your groove. Just like with cooking any food. I had a list of challenges when we first started and now there aren’t any. Hang in there! You can do this!
We ate pizza and salads for a long long time.lol. I was afraid to make anything else.lol.
As we were preparing to relaunch the blog I found some of the first pictures from our earlier days. I am so happy to say that we have come a long way from just pizza and salads. Now, I love the challenge of making something new and tasty for our family.
Check out some of our first meals!
Now, our present day pizzas and salads are so official with all the fixings and such. For our pizzas, the crust and sauce taste so much better after trial and error. Our salad game has stepped up too if I must say so. I make our dressings (hemp or mango) as well as some crispy fried mushroom bites as a topping that really take the salad to another level.
