I’ve decided to do a series highlighting a new power ingredient each week.
What is a power ingredient?
Think superfood but a little broader.. foods that have something compelling to offer us.
At the start of the week, I will briefly introduce the new ingredient – what it is (including its health benefits) and where to find it. Some will be more common than others, but I’ll be sure to provide a background of the star ingredient.
Then I’ll discuss its uses in a compilation post where I show many different ways to utilize the particular ingredient for all sorts of categories and meals. This will get your foodie gears grinding and the creative kitchen juices flowing. It’s a fantastic opportunity for you (and me for that matter) to learn very unique and intriguing ways to incorporate more variety into your diet.
Next I will do a few follow-up posts showing recipes I’ve made, tweaked or created using the ingredient. I too need a good excuse to continually expand in this area as well as challenge myself in bettering my food photography!
With this series, I really want you to feel empowered. Expand your feelers a bit. Discover new ways to switch up your same ‘ol same ‘ol. It’s very easy to get caught up in a monotonous routine or get stuck when it comes to food. Even though we have the world wide web at our fingertips, the amount of information out there is overwhelming. I’m hoping this can be a condensed and useful resource so you’re able to put together new combinations or dishes. Because of an expanded knowledge, you will hopefully have the freedom and power to be inventive instead of feeling the need to strictly follow a recipe or prepare food in a meticulously precise way. Different from baking, I want you to be able to branch out and consistently prepare nutritious food everyday that suits you!
Let’s embrace food creativity, shall we?
