I would say my cooking falls into three categories: 1. Meal cooking (so for immediate consumption such as lunch or dinner); 2. Meal prep (so the stuff that goes into the freezer for back up such as pizza crusts, pictured); and 3. “Projects” (any new recipes that I try, usually accompanied by my kids’ eye roll as in ‘We are so not even gonna try that’). When category 1 is under control, if I have extra time I focus on number 2 because you never know when you won’t have time to cook and the freezer back ups save you. Today I am stocking up on pizza crusts. **RECIPE: whisk 8 eggs, add 2 cups of almond flour, mix well. Add 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese (this is what holds the crusts together). Heat up non stick frying pan. On medium heat add one ladle of the dough to the middle of the pan and spread it using spatula. Flip when the bottom is browned and let it brown on the other side. Cool on the cooling rack before either using or freezing.** This makes 9 crusts. The recipe can be halved.
We are so used to seeing symmetry everywhere that when it’s missing, we notice right away. But what about balance in life? Do we notice when it is missing and do we take any actions to try and restore it? This is just a gentle reminder to do something you love even if it is just for a little bit. You need to take care of yourself in order to be able to take care of others. #selfcare
