I didn’t know there was a right or wrong way to cook until I learned that cooking with only 1-3 ingredients is what worked. I grew up working outdoors on a farm, never spent much time indoors learning how to cook. My mom did that and she was the best! My first year of college was great because I lived on campus and ate at the school cafeteria.. it was “all you could eat” of mostly bad food but tasted great!
After college and settling into my career I was mostly on the road eating out and making bad choices. By the time I reached 50 I was sick, fat, and feeling miserable.
I decided to make a change, hired a coach and learned about eating clean. I still hated the thought of cooking but over the past few years have learned the following:
- Meals with only 1-3 key ingredients is key
- If you need a recipe it’s probably too hard for me
- Using fresh herbs in anything is good (taste good, and gives you some kind of great added bonus for your health)
- Taking time to present food in a pretty manner is KEY – it makes something plain and simple so much better (like steamed broccoli)
- If cooking takes more than 20 minutes it’s too long
- Experimenting is fun – some of the BEST dishes I make are made up
- Cooking doesn’t mean “COOK” at all, sometimes the best meals involve no cooking at all
