I find it funny that we are so devoted to making good, healthy, colourful and delicious food for everyone, but how often do you make yourself a delicious meal that just you enjoy. You get to make exactly what you want, how you want it and then sit down and enjoy the love you have just put into a meal and now yourself. Is there any better way to nourish your soul?
My boyfriend works a lot in the winter and is away a lot so this leaves me the opportunity to have some selfish time and take care of myself and put some love into the food I am putting in my body.
Here is a meal I had the other night. I sauteed Shitake mushrooms, Pancetta, Spinach and Sunflower seeds in a pan. Starting with the Pancetta and Shitake mushrooms then adding the Sunflower seeds and the Spinach. Once this was slightly cooked some roasted beets were added and mix together along with a sprinkle of Pear Balsamic vinegar. This was then put into a ramekin covered in some delicious local cheese and baked in the oven. Delish!
And after a day of Heli-skiing I deserved this healthy and delicious meal!
Don't forget to take care of and love yourself because at the end of the day when you lay your head on your pillow, you matter most!
