In this week’s podcast, we talk about the importance of basic recipes. Basic recipes? Well, a common question we get is how you go from thought to action. People have been inspired to start hunting for more nutrition and have realised how big difference food can make for their well-being… But, they do not know where to start.
We think it’s time to start sharing some basic recipes here on the blog. Dinners that you may already be cooking for the family but with a few small adjustments. Like a stroganoff without sausage, for example.
And immediately we feel that we have to correct ourselves! Because this stroganoff is only without sausage if you want it to be without sausage. It’s just as ok to start by just adding lentils to the recipe. Maybe step two could be to halve the amount of sausage? And suddenly, a few months later, a completely vegetarian stroganoff that everyone in the family eats is on the table.
Are you beginning to understand how we work? With baby steps! Small steps are better than no steps at all. Adding a new healthy ingredient to the recipe is a great start.
So, here is our best recipe for vegetarian stroganoff, with or without sausage. But then it will not be vegetarian, of course. But maybe that’s ok for now?Print
