I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been thinking a lot about the meat shortage lately. Like, a lot a lot. Like, I keep writing about it for work a lot. If you haven’t noticed prices of meat skyrocketing at your grocery store, take this as your warning: it’s bound to happen soon. Numerous meatpacking sites closed due to the health of their employees (and the spread of the virus), which means meat production will slow. Which also means, yes, we’ll have to start getting creative with our protein choices. So this week I finally tackled creating a salmon patties recipe—something I’ve been wanting to try for far too long.
Day two of sharing one of my favorite Mexican recipes, and funny enough, this was also a recipe I liked to make in college. Even though I would buy tostada shells pre-made to go with my black beans and Mexican rice, I recently learned how easy it is to make these shells from scratch! So I figured I would teach you how to make tostadas.
This weekend I felt like junk…and I knew why. My eating habits are all over the place right now. Not because I’m relying on emotional eating during this time, but because I’m trying to cook the food I have in order to eliminate food waste while quarantined at home. Which means I’ve been eating a lot of random combinations of things and not really focusing on the foods that make me feel good. So I decided to plan out a week of really clean meals for myself because my body is seriously craving it, and I came up with this tasty chicken sausage sweet potato bake for lunches.
You know how you eat something so good that you want to try and recreate it? Yeah, I’m the queen of that. Italian bruschetta, buffalo mac and cheese, ciabatta breakfast sandwich, the list goes on. So of course, when I posted a version of this goddess arugula bowl on my Instagram, my followers asked me to recreate it.
Today’s a great day to break up with your diet. Why? Because LOOK AT THIS PATTY MELT. I’m telling you right now, one bite of this delicious, toasty patty melt will undo any type of toxic dieting culture that has maneuvered into your life. I’m sure of it.
