I’ve gotten into a dinner rut lately. Weird, I know, considering my job is CREATING new food…but sometimes it happens. I hit a creativity drought and we end up eating meatballs and salad for a week straight.
Healthy and easy, yes. But interesting and enticing? Not so much after the 5th go around in a matter of weeks.
So, I’ve been trying to push myself out of the salad bowl and make things that don’t normally occur to me. Things that I would only typically order at a restaurant or maybe enjoy at a friend’s house for dinner. Things that make me excited for dinner time again.
Yep. I am a big believer in the importance of food being exciting. Even healthy food. ESPECIALLY healthy food.
You see…Eating. Gathering around the table. Sharing the events of our days, our celebrations, our frustrations, the events that make up our lives has been shared around a dinner table for generations. The dinner table is where teenagers pour out their deep, angsty thoughts. Adults let go of the stress of the day and laugh about little Timmy turning his carrot sticks into walrus teeth. Where so many children learn manners, conversation skills and so many more things. Food is traditionally linked with togetherness….and that food should be exciting!
And nourishing. Definitely nourishing. Because it is what our body is running off of.
So, long story made not so short…..I have been on a mission to make new, fun food that brings back the excitement of dinner time in a healthy way.
And 20-Minute Pork Fried Cauliflower Rice is definitely something I am looking forward to making again!
Loaded with vibrant colors, textures and oodles of flavor….I did my thing with this dish and added tons of veggies to make this recipes something will foster excitement and health around you oh-so-important dinner table.
