I felt liberated with this permission, and glad to be eating everything with my family again. I doubt they noticed the change, but they did stop asking if I would join them – because they knew I would.
I’ve made this salad many many times, and each time, I’m not only grateful for the gift that continues to give, I’m just grateful that there’s a recipe for a salad that our whole family loves.
This is a really simple way to make a dish that explodes with Thai flavors without requiring exotic ingredients.
THIS recipe is special in that it uses two ingredients that aren’t common and yet they make two humble sad looking bananas into something quite magical. You will just have to try it for yourself!
When your kids beg you to make a salad, you oblige, with glee.
This is that salad!
My intuition knew I didn’t have a problem, so I would struggle even more because my mind wanted something different than my body.
This is the cake that I make for them on their half birthday which just happened. It’s simple, but delicious, and comes together so quickly. It’s from Molly Wizenberg’s first book: A Homemade Life.
When the clouds parted and I decided to leave the traffic circle of dieting, I returned to what made me and my body feel good.
