Now that I live alone, I am much more innovative in the kitchen.
I am able to fully take charge of my own wellness and experiment with new healthy recipes without some hot bearded boyfriend distracting me with romance and genuine human connection.
Last night, I had a very limited ingredient selection that challenged me to get creative without having to leave my apartment, where it’s safe.
I made a Shredded Boca Burger-Rice Cake-Hummus Ball with a Zesty Sriracha Squirt. Then, this morning I made a Smashed Banana-Almond Butter Swirley Bowl with Fork Stabbed-out Blueberry Goo.
And I didn’t have to go outside of my apartment where it’s scary.
Cooking for one doesn’t have to be depressing.
It can be almost as fun as sharing a meal with a loved one!
Five Tips for Spicing Things Up in the Kitchen Since Absolutely Nothing is Happening in the Bedroom.
A watched pot never boils. While you are waiting on your zuchinni noodles to become not at all like pasta. I catch up with my tinder matches or meditate.
2. Kitchen tunes!
Cooking is the perfect way to get my Norah Jones time in or discover a new artist such as Linda Ronstadt.
There’s no one there to judge what a real meal should look like. Even if it’s chaos rolled up into a ball, it’s a meal if you say it is.
4. Get creative with garnishes!
I’ve discovered there many more options than peanut butter.
5. Use your favorite utensils.
I like to use my Yogurtland spoon so that every meal I can pretend I’m really eating frozen yogurt.
So ladies, have fun, get crazy and don’t forget the activated charcoal.
And remember this, a meal is up to your discretion.
Love elephant and want to go steady?
