The Joys of Cooking

I love my kitchen. I feel blessed to be able to purchase amazing tasting, fresh, food and push myself to be creative every single night. I love cooking, experimenting, slicing and dicing (and missing my fingers, thankyouverymuch), mixing and pureeing, patting and shaping, baking and stir-frying. I love it all. Thank you LORD!

too many tupperware to carry at one time

tofu/garbanzo ball of protein will soon be: "meat"balls, burger patties + such

the perfect sandwich: almond butter, raisins, cinnamon, roasted sunflower seeds

2 chocolate spinach green monsters
spinach, frozen fruits, vanilla, cocoa powder, dates, flaxseed

aaand breathe.

I love how I can move non-stop in a kitchen for 3 hours, feeling energetic and motivated, and then the moment I sit down on the couch to get some blog-writing down, I crash and envision long hours of sweet sleep ahead. I'm ready for bed, man!

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus
as Lord, continue to live your lives in Him,

rooted and built up in him, strengthened
in the faith as you were taught, and
overflowing with thankfulness.

Colossians 2:6-7
