10 Ways To Inspire a Conscious Kitchen
1 Creative cooking If you can’t cook, why not take a cooking course? Check out the internet for exciting dishes, buy a cookbook or just start out with the basics. Remember, when creating a new recipe that it might take two or three times to get it just right. Make it your own but always have fun investigating and experimenting.
2 Spice It Up! Sweet or spicy? Curry, garlic, tumeric, sea salt, Bragg’s Seasonings or try new herbs like Cillantro can kick your dish up a notch. Try using fresh herbs and taste the difference. Many spices are rich in antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antibacterial compounds.
