Wardeh, you have change my life. Your e-course was spectacular and I learned so much. I wish I could continue my membership but things are financially really hard and that extra money is needed for groceries. If things look up, I'll be back in a heart beat. The videos and accompanying dialogue made everything so clear and really help me see and understand how to make traditional foods (can you believe dialogue is not in my spellcheck but Facebook is?).
I have spent the last few days watching videos. I even dreamed Wardeh was with me on a cross province trip, making stops at bake offs last night and checking water levels in small communities, lol! Yeah, kind of weird!
So friends, if you are overwhelmed and not sure how to get going with traditional food preparation, I highly recommend signing up for these e-courses. Click the banner for a link. It is very reasonably priced with courses for all price ranges but it is still a hardship for us right now.
I am planning to do a complete overhaul of our eating in the new year. I am going to find things the kids LIKE. I am tired of catering to their picky food likes. They even turn their noses up at things most kids love! I am making tacos for lunch and while I just have my son home, I am hoping he will try and like them (I once made them too spicy so they would never eat them again. Update: it is like trying to get a rock to eat. He will not try it, just nibbling some of the tortilla. He was moaning and upset over trying something new; have I mentioned he has sensory food issues?). I have my dough resting for tortillas and while my hamburger is frozen, I find it's easy to cook if it is going to be in crumbles anyway. It is a quick, easy to prepare lunch.
I don't really have any recipes because to be honest, I haven't really been cooking. I have still been very sick and very tired. This illness has taken a lot out of me. I haven't had the energy to keep up with dishes (until this morning, every single dish, utensil and pot and pan was dirty, literally). I haven't had the energy to shop. I haven't felt like making real food, even though I made a pot of stew and a batch of rolls for a friend who just had a baby. We have been relying on easy junk and it is showing. I am so bloated and ill and I know it's not helping me get better eating junk. My Candida is so bad it is affecting my mouth so I know I need to get the sugar and refined grains out.
So enough whining. I will be better prepared in the new year. Wardeh is a great example of organization. When I watch,I think she must have OCD too, lol!! (I have OCD but a weird kind) I must meal plan again. I must stop wasting food and making better use of the food we have. There is a lot I want to do but the ultimate goal will be to nourish our bodies.
