The idea for Kitchen Talks came out of a conversation Urs and I were having this past Summer about the connection between our time (or lack thereof) and the kitchen.
I’m generally pretty good friends with my kitchen, but, as evidenced by my lack of posts in the last several months, I fell victim to competing priorities during the busiest months of holistic nutrition school — who knew homework would take up so much time? — and found myself completely disconnected from my kitchen.
Now, I’m as much a foodie as I am a holistic nutritionist and really enjoy eating at the places I was frequenting for my meals — Whole Foods’ prepared food bar, my neighbourhood dosa place, and any sushi restaurant. That said, I was eating out too much for my own sanity: it was taxing the student budget I was on, taking the excitement out of what were usually my #treatyoself places, and making me long for a home-cooked meal.
Towards the end of those busiest months of schooling, I implemented some easy strategies to stay connected with my kitchen, like adding fresh vegetables to my dosa at home and batch cooking a soup once a week. These strategies were not new to me, but when that busy-ness hit, I was too preoccupied to have planned for them. I’ve since made these strategies, and others, into habits that I rely upon whenever busy times hit, keeping my kitchen (and my bank account) happy!
If you’re tired of saying you’re too busy to cook and ready to figure out where you’re spending your time, Urs and I would love to see you at Kitchen Talks: The Myth of Time on January 29. It’ll be an intimate, interactive evening (only 25 seats available) of finding more time for yourself, making new friends, and eating great food.

It’s never too late to become friends with your kitchen!
Happy New Year!
