Years ago, I did not believe that I had a single creative bone in my body. This was due to the fact that I got poor marks on my drawings in art class. Stick figures were a challenge for me.
Art = Drawing, and that was that.
Interesting how our belief system develops when we’re children and has immense staying power.
Today, I challenge you to discover your creative self in the kitchen. Designing meals, playing with recipes, creating delicious dishes with ingredients that you have on hand, all equal priceless artwork.
Cooking and baking can be a form of meditation—when you’re not rushed to get food on the table in 10 minutes.
Now, I know that if you have young children or children that require chauffeuring or you’re working 60 hours a week, you may have to carve out some time on the weekend to enjoy your creative binging.
Perhaps you could bake a cake. When did you last take the time to measure out flour, sugar, butter, salt, baking powder, eggs, milk, and vanilla, to make an amazing “scratch” cake?
I’ve been thinking about making a coconut cake (gluten and dairy free) for a long time. The standard birthday cake in our family is yellow cake with chocolate frosting, so that’s what happens.
Next week, I’m going for the coconut cake. It will be fun to try something new.
Care to join me? Here’s your invitation:
WHAT: The Amazing Cake Bake with Health Coach Carol
WHERE: ZOOM, so you’re in your own kitchen, and we’re together
WHEN: Thursday, July 23, 2020 from 1:00pm to 2:30pm
HOW: You gather the ingredients you need to make whatever cake you desire, and we all make cake
WHY: Creating a cake from scratch is an act of love, and the world could use more love
Once you taste your homemade cake from scratch, you’ll have an entirely new perspective of a cake that tastes AMAZING! And you know my rule, only eat it if it’s AMAZING! As a result, what may on first glance appear counterintuitive, is not.
While the cakes are baking, I’ll be coaching you on a variety of health tips. We learn from one another and share lots of laughs.
To join in the fun, be sure to email me prior to Thursday, July 23 to save your spot. I’ll then email you the special Zoom link, along with any special instructions.
