Michael artfully discussed, “what is means to eat with a fuller consciousness and how having a heighten awareness of the food thats going into our bodies can improve our physical and spiritual well-being.”
His talk was so inspiring to me, that right then and there I made the conscious decision to begin to make no fewer than three home cooked meals per week from now on!
I feel like I owe it to my family to do my part to prepare healthy, tasty, but easy to make dishes. For me, this harkens back to a simpler time when dinner was not just a source of sustance, but a wonderful social event!
Now that I’ve made this promise, this transformative declaration – next comes the hard part!
The follow thru!!!
I am not a chef by any means, so what can I whip-up for dinner that my wife and three little ones will actually eat?
My search for recipes and inspiration had begun.
So on the Monday afternoon following the show, I stumbled upon an old fashion recipe similar to the way my grandfather used to make it.
Chicken and Rice! (follow the exact directions from the link above)
- 4 quarts of water
- One whole chicken
- 3-4 celery stalks
- 1 sweet onion
- salt & pepper
The results are in, what did the family think of there meal?
Rachael: “Very good. Needs more salt though.”
Marley: “Sort of good.”
Delaney: “Umm, good, but if I have to eat this tomorrow…I know I won’t be hungry!”
Journey: “I don’t like Chicken and Rice.”
