Real food. real life.
I take pictures of what we eat all of the time. Mainly because I am still surprised that we can pull together a meal that looks and tastes so good. We are hardly chefs. But we've learned over time how to cook and use different ingredients to the taste we like - without leaning on pre-packaged meals/ingredients or eating junk.
This week's photos made me realize just how busy our week was! We had something on the go every night this week and had very little time to prepare supper. But, with a little meal planning on the weekend before, we pulled off a week of delicious eating, all under 30 minutes each - with most only taking about 10 minutes to prepare!
Take a look! I hope I make you hungry! It's Sunday - time to meal plan!
10 minute meal: Homemade Tortilla Wraps (Already prepared on the weekend while renovating the kitchen and stored in the freezer for easy 30 second on the table defrost) filled with ground pork cooked with chilli powder, cumin, chilli flakes, lime, and peppers, fresh tomatoes, lettuce, green onion, and Lee's has a bit of cheese.
Truth: Life IS busy and unpredictable. And, yes, time is valuable. But what you eat can make or break it. So make it last. Make it count.
Cook. REALLY cook. Don't just tear open a package or crack open a jar. But cook - you know - mixing spices, simmering sauces, sautéing .. Yep, the real deal. It's really not that hard once you open your mind to it.
Read our story and try out some of our recipes. We really cooked these things (and ate them, too!). On weeknights. We even had time to do the dishes.
And yes, there is no refined sugar, soy, or dairy in any of these recipes. And often, they are vegan, gluten-free, or nut-free friendly.
