Real Self-Care: Food from Scratch

This post is part of a month-long series on Real Self-Care for world-changers. It’s about the experimentation: figuring out what works for you and following your heart. Simple, messy and everything in between. Self-care should be custom, intuitive, feasible and kind – to serve your actual life.


Food from Scratch

No matter what else is going on, nothing makes me feel more grounded and centered than a home-cooked meal. It doesn’t need to be complicated or fancy. I don’t need to spend a lot of time or money. There’s just something about cooking in my own kitchen with fresh, recognizable ingredients that didn’t come from a package.

Oh, and I always make enough for leftovers, since cooking entirely from scratch isn’t always an option. It’s an investment in my future self (because she deserves delicious food too!).
