What I Am Eating Lately

If we are sitting around a table together, I will most likely ask if you enjoy cooking. I find the details of how people eat fascinating — especially those who don’t cook. How do you eat? Do you order take-out all of the time? Do you eat cereal and snacks as meals?

I remember distinctly being told by my father, if I wanted to eat, I better learn how to cook. The trick of cooking is finding good recipes and  following them until you feel comfortable improvising. I don’t chop properly, but that doesn’t matter!

Food blogs and Pinterest are my go-to resources for meal inspiration. I still own physical cookbooks, which I will flip through occasionally. One of the greatest take-aways from participating in a CSA this summer is we’ve been forced to eat seasonally. On Tuesdays I pick up our box and then spend a little time washing and storing our goods properly. I’ll go online afterwards and look for different recipes to go along with what we’ve received.

These are the foods I’ve been focusing on lately.

Sweet Potatoes | Sweet Potato & Black Bean TacosCoconut Curried Kale & Sweet Potato.

Tomatos | ShakshukaBasic Chili, Curried Potatoes with Poached Eggs (we get a lot of potatoes!).

Chick Peas | Smashed Chickpea Avocado Salad (I ate this on a bed of lettuce), Spicy Chickpea & Squash Stew.

Squash & Zucchini | Vegetable White Bean Soup, Coconut Flour Zucchini Bread.

Pumpkin | 1 Bowl Pumpkin Bread (the addition of oat & almond flour makes this bread really filling), Pumpkin White Bean Chili.

I will roast the remaining vegetables and eat them as a side dish or mixed with a batch of quinoa!
