Meal prepping for next week, and may have to throw this one on the menu again. 🤤 .
Every week I aim to make at least one new recipe I’ve never made before, while mixing up and rotating a long list of favourites. 👩🏼🍳 Sometimes the hardest thing about meal planning isn’t even the cooking, but deciding what meals to make! Branton and I have different favourites (I could eat Buddha bowls for life, and he would probably be happier with homemade chicken fingers and yam fries 😅), so it’s a balancing act of what we will both like, is good for lunch leftovers, and meets all my dietary concerns. #glutenfree #dairyfree #soyfree ... #autoimmunedisease .
Even though I have a good amount of recipes in my arsenal, every week it’s the same feeling as looking into a packed closet and thinking, “I have nothing to wear!” Yes, yes you do. 🙈Lol .
I’ve been taking the same mentality of my closet to my cooking... wherein with my closet, I’ve challenged myself to realize I DO NOT need more, to be creative with the items I do have, attend clothing swaps, and thrift. Translating that to cooking, I am aiming to be more creative with some of my go-to recipes and changing them up on the fly, and trying new cookbooks out through the @winnipegpubliclibrary . .
Tomorrow we’ll be hitting up the new Windsor Park library and hopefully finding a few new gems to add next week’s meal plan. 💎 .
Anyone else find recipe hunting the hardest part of meal planning? What are some of your go-to recipes/cookbooks? 📚 .
