Today's post is a little different because I am coming to you in video.
So often I hear patients tell me they wish they knew how to look in the fridge and be able to come up with a healthy meal, no recipe required.
I think there is an unrealistic expectation that this should just come naturally. Instead of expecting it to come naturally, and then beating yourself up about it when it doesn't, here is what I know from experience:
1. It takes practice
2. Keep it simple
3. Find people who do what you want to do and copy them
I hope this video is something that you can "copy" and creates more confidence in the kitchen for you to make healthy food.
Originally I thought I should do this video on a day that I was dressed for for work so that I would look "professional". Then I thought, why put extra pressure on myself? In this pandemic more than half of us are working from home and living in PJs or yoga pants 24/7.
So this is me in my kitchen, no editing, no script, no professional polish. Showing you how easy it is to make a simple healthy salad, no recipe required!
Now I would love to hear from you? Is there any recipe that you make without a recipe? Leave a comment below and I'll be back next week with another edition of Doctor As Teacher Tuesday!
