“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces,
just good food from fresh ingredients." ~Julia Child
Some of our faves:
-Squash anything... ha. Something about the next day that "brings out the flavor".
- Butternut Chili *recipe coming*
- Butternut Lasagna *recipe coming*
- Roasted squash- simple, peel (if hard skin), slice, lay out on a shallow baking pan with a little breathing room. Add a trickle of oil, salt, pepper, and braggs seasoning to taste, roast in oven at 400' (I use a convection setting)-- watch them they burn quick.
- Bone broth + protein + veggies + fat
- Sourdough bread (I've tried unsuccessfully to make it; now I just buy it here- THE best! If we don't overdo it, we can have it about once a week.)
-Snackie plates (my little love this!)
- Dippers: hummus, cream cheese with jam, condiments galore
- Protein + lots of veggies (80% cooked in real fat, 20% raw, but this is totally my opinion and what works for my family; you could flip flop that ratio. Do what works for YOU!)
Note to self: if you've checked out the book more than 3x, it's time to buy.that.book. I LOVE their confession that they give their cooking skills a B+ at best.
YES YES, a million times YES! Real food is Real Simple.
1. REAL (in their most natural state; grows in the ground, falls from a tree, swims in the sea, walks on the land, etc.)
2. SIMPLE (combinations are good but honestly we are talking like 2 foods together not 10)
3. FOOD (I like my food like I like my friends; no "fakes" allowed).
"Hot Plates should make up the majority of your meals. they’re fast, they’re nutritious, and if you alternate them with “real recipes,” you will naturally eat a balance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats, plenty of vegetables, a wide variety of protein sources, and your taste buds will never get bored. Find step-by-step instructions and tons of ideas for Hot Plates on page 35.
