Working as a successful, independent entrepreneur, veggies , protein, fruits and carbs all meant the same and somehow what to eat or when to eat never bothered me. When I did cook, I aimed for convenient, edible food.
Then tiny footprints entered my life and a lot of what I knew of myself, and my food philosophy, changed. Motherhood didn’t make me think I was wrong. I just felt the need to dig deeper and re-evaluate what always had been and do it with the goal of finding faster, more nutritive ways.
What we eat and feed our loved ones Does matter.
The more I read, watch on TV or observe people, I am discovering so many processes and methodologies that have existed for so long, that no one questions them anymore. Each time I find myself automatically following what I saw my mother, grandmother, aunts etc do, a big part of my mind rebels and questions start sprouting in my mind, like freshly made popcorn. For eg: In traditional Indian curries, we add onions first and then the tomatoes, but what if I reversed the order? What if I didn’t add onions at all but added pumpkin instead? What if I didn’t use the traditional pressure cooker to cook lentils, but a pan instead?
So if you are as curious as I am, join me in my expedition to learn how to cook, fuse and substitute age old ingredients with new, fresh ones and create more nutritious FUSION food.
