As evening approaches, we ask ourselves "What should we have for dinner?" Exhausted from a full day of work, we try to come up with something semi-decent to put on the table. Sometimes we punt and order take-out or fast food. Twenty-four hours later, the same scenario crops up again. Cooking instructor and expert Nevra Ledwon suggests that there is a better way to go about providing healthy meals for ourselves and our families.
In episode #147, Nevra talked about "why" we should get cooking. Today, she gets into the "how." She walks us through a week of cooking and shows us how simple it can be, with just a little forethought and planning. She gives us strategies for using what food we have on hand, ideas for involving the family in meal planning, and tips for avoiding our perfectionistic tendencies that make us stress about getting a dish exactly right. Novices and cooking veterans alike will glean ideas from Nevra's clear guidance. She shows us how cooking can truly be a joy and a wonderful tool for deep nourishment and lasting health.
