All my life, I have had an "all or nothing" relationship with food; gaining and losing without figuring out what works for me. I struggled to find the "balance"...until now. Deciding to take any dish I want and cooking it in a healthy way has been quite empowering. What I have taken away from this experience so far, is that it's not just about food. It is about taking whatever it is in our lives that is not right and making it work. If you want something, then find a way to make it happen. For me, it has been cooking. For you, it may be something different. The point is, when something isn't working, the solution lies somewhere within us.
I feel very blessed to have had such an exciting time with cooking; haven been given great opportunities to travel and cook along side some amazing chefs; ones who I look up to. I would have never imagined that this personal quest to acquire some cooking skills would have opened me up to so much. I guess you just don't know until you go for it, right?
Hope to see you around the Cookin' Lean Kitchen!
Good health and great dishes to you and your family!
