Get in the Kitchen! by Maria Roselle
 
If you didn’t already know this, getting in the kitchen and making your own food as opposed to eating out/getting take-out will help you stay on track. Eating out occasionally is fine and even encouraged, to help you stay sane…however, if done frequently, it can really inhibit the goals you are trying to reach. Often times things that you are thinking is healthy, have a lot of hidden ingredients such as canola oil, excessive butter/oil, even gluten in some seasonings. Therefore, my advice is to either A) food prep and get your booty in the kitchen more or B) look into Power Supply so you know exactly what you are getting from their food labels.

A way to help you motivate yourself to get into the kitchen is to buy yourself a new little gadget!! By buying a new fun kitchen tool, you will probably want to find ways to get it to good use. For example, when I bought my spiralizer, I went crazy with it. I spiralized everything from sweet potatoes, onions, beets, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, and apples. (Side note…spiralized squash = squoodles. Zucchini = zoodles. Sweet potato…..spoodles?)

Other than kitchen gadgets, you can purchase a good cookbook and make it a goal to make at least 1 meal out of it per week. Put on some good jams, and get cookin. Some good paleo cookbooks I have used include:

OMG That’s Paleo? – Juli Bauer
Against All Grain – Danielle Walker
Practical Paleo – Diane Sanfilippo
Paleo Comfort Foods – Julie Sullivan Mayfield & Charles Mayfield
AND
My newest purchase: The Paleo Kitchen – Juli Bauer & George Bryant

If you’re not as old school with the handheld recipe books, there are so many blogs out there that are free and have a lot of info as well. All of the above authors have popular blogs that you can google and get great recipes from!!

Any other gotta-have recipe books or blogs anyone is aware of? -MariaPCF
