You have to know your cooking style in order to choose the right recipes for your family. . Which is why I pretty much avoid recipes that claim to make my life easier but require measuring. . This is also why I’m a little late to the overnight oat thing. Every recipe required me to measure oats, liquid, and sweetener. But you guys, guess what? You can basically just wing it! . Here’s how: . Add rolled oats, steel cut oats, or a mix of both (regular, not quick cook) to a large mason jar, 1/2-3/4 full max. . Completely cover with almond milk, or any milk. Make sure they are fully covered with 1/4 inch or so more liquid than oats. . Add a drizzle of maple syrup. You can always skip this or add more later. . Mix directly in the jar and put in your fridge overnight. . Done. No dishes, no measuring. . Add toppings like nut butter, yogurt, fruit, cinnamon or whole nuts and seeds in the morning. . Come see me tomorrow @bellaboutiquemarin to chat cooking styles, “Real Plans”, and to get inspired to create a simpler cooking routine. Link in profile for more info about A SIMPLY Amazing night and my fabulous co-hosts @salsauv10 @purejoyacupuncture @fit4mommarin @tana_inskeep and more.

I’m constantly looking over my shoulder, thinking about the next activity, whats on my list to do, where I need to be next and dinner time is another puzzle I figure out somewhere in the mix! . It’s a good day when I know what I’m making for dinner before I leave the house for school drop offs, but doesn’t always happen that way. . My friend and meal planning guru inspired by real life, Kelly has been such a wonderful resource and source of inspiration for those types of days for me! @realfoodhouse is based on the truth that parenting is hard, but cooking doesn’t have to be! 🙌 I love her simplistic and real approach for finding a way to cook that meets the needs of our family without compromising flavor! . She will be offering personalized meal plan/real plan sessions as apart of A SIMPLY Amazing Night Out this Friday 6/21 @bellaboutiquemarin - a fun event designed to help you feel simply amazing, from style, skincare to wellness! Stop by anytime between 6-9 and rsvp by tomorrow for an extra entry to the raffle full of great prizes including a $50 gift certificate to Bella and more! . Kelly shares, “There’s no one way of eating that’s right for everyone and there is certainly not one way to meal plan.” .

I have a complicated relationship with meal plans. . On one hand, I believe having a plan is the cure for 90% of my anxiety but when I think of creating meal plans I feel all squirmy and like I want to run away. . (Now I know meal plans are tools a lot of people love and if that's you, I'd never want to deter you from using what works for you. In fact, I've written and deleted this post several times for fear of steering anyone away from something that works for them. So if your meal plan is working for you, do not be deterred!) . For some people with a history of restrictive eating habits (myself included), a meal plan can become a perfectionist's yardstick. For us, creating a meal plan can become a way to measure whether or not we've succeeded or failed on any given week, an all or nothing equation that we either follow or deny. . But going into the week without any plan can also be disastrous and expensive. So I've been experimenting with a new framework for myself and with clients that starts by asking questions like: What do you have at home that you'd like to use? What do you like to eat? What's currently working for your family? When will you need a break? . I'm not sure what to call this. An Intuitive Meal Plan? A Real Plan? A Meal Plan with questions? Either way, the idea is to use your knowledge of your life and schedule as well as your intuition to guide your choices. . I'm going to be offering free personalized intuitive meal plan/real plan sessions as part of A SIMPLY Amazing Night Out @bellaboutiquemarin in San Rafael, CA on Friday, 6/21. Drop-in anytime from 6-9 pm. There's no one way of eating that's right for everyone and there's certainly not one way to meal plan so bring on your dietary requirements, a group of friends, and a list of what's in your fridge begging to be used. Link in profile for details. . Check out a few of my co-hosts as well @salsauv10, @purejoyacupuncture, @fit4mommarin and @bellaboutiquemarin, I'll be sharing more about them later this week.

Hello! Welcome to my cooking account! I'm Nehla, and this account is for all of my food creations!🍽 - Now, not all of us have the luxury of owning proper equipment for cooking.

So over here, and over on my blog (link will be provided in bio), I'll be sharing recipes that i have come up with, and perfected. I hope you all like it, and will hopefully remake them. - This recipe is for a creamy garlic and beef shell-pasta. This is a recipe without any cheese, and calls for ingredients we all lying around our kitchen.

This morning, as my baby girl stood in line for the bus on her last day of kindergarten I felt overwhelmed by emotions. I felt grateful (because @brenebrown told me gratitude helps) but I also felt a longing to freeze these moments and enjoy them fully. . Then I had an epiphany. . Lately I've been even more into simplifying cooking, shopping and all my routines but I haven’t been able to articulate why this feels so important to me. I'm even planning an event about simplifying your style and wellness routines (more on that later). . But today I realized, simplifying my daily routines is about freeing up space in my mind to be present and savor the moments that matter. . Because if I'm thinking about what to make for dinner, or wondering whether or not I have something to wear, or worrying about the safety of the products in my home, or calculating when I have time for a workout this week, or if I'm feeling anxious about all of the above and more, I'm not mentally present for the dance parties, the backyard games of tag, or the hugs and smiles coming my way. In fact, if my brain feels all scrambled and disorganized, I'm short-tempered and impatient and that feels yucky. . But when I'm organized and I have groceries in the house, a plan for the week, clothes and products I love that fit my body and my life, I feel like anything is possible. I'm patient, joyful, a better role model, and the first one to the dance party (although not the best dancer 🤷‍♀️). . So that’s what this is all about... Simplifying the everyday routines, without sacrificing quality, so I can free up mental space for deep conversations, family, relationships, spontaneous fun, and work I love. I think that’s why @mariekondo is our collective hero right now. . If this resonates with you, I’ll be co-hosting A SIMPLY Amazing Night Out @bellaboutiquemarin in San Rafael, CA on June 21 from 6-9 pm. No cost to attend, just lots of simplifying + apps, drinks and my lovely co-hosts @salsauv10 and @purejoyacupuncture. Details and RSVP in profile. . Oh yeah, and to make this meal cook pizza according to package directions and serve on a blanket in your backyard. 🥂

Just posting this makes me want to heat up a bowl of this one pot red bell pepper, turkey, and mushroom pasta. . This one checks a lot of boxes: . Delicious ✔️ . One pot ✔️ . Ability to make ahead and re-heat ✔️ . Or ability to throw together with minimal thinking while your kids watch less than two (okay maybe less than three) episodes of their favorite show ✔️ . Ability to start and stop if you get an urgent call from the school saying your daughter missed the bus and you need to come pick her up 🤦‍♀️ and ✔️ . Ability to improv using whatever you have on hand ✔️✔️ . Here’s how: Cook 2 lbs ground turkey breast in 1 tbsp grapeseed oil in a large pot. Add salt. . Drain the turkey, lightly wipe down the pan, and set the turkey aside. . Add 1 tbsp grapeseed or olive oil to the pan. Add chopped veggies - I used 1/2 yellow onion, 4 cloves garlic, 1 red bell pepper, and 1 cup mushrooms. (Or keep the onions and garlic and try adding whatever you have on hand that you don’t want to waste. Maybe some broccoli or carrots and celery?) Add salt as you go. . Once the veggies are soft add the turkey back into the pan + 2 cups of water and a jar of sauce. (I like the Rao’s brand). . Mix together and bring to a boil. . Stir in 12 oz of pasta. Make sure the pasta is submerged in the liquid and add a little more water if needed. . Cook until the pasta is done, about 8-10 minutes depending on what kind you use. . Finish with spinach or kale for a greener pasta or add some red pepper flakes table-side for some spice. . The inspiration for this meal comes from Carolyn @thedinnershift and her one pot taco pasta. 🙏Check her out, she’s always sharing yummy meals and time-saving tricks!

Send grain bowls! I mean they’re so versatile! And all the picky eaters can choose what they like without me having to make separate meals! What would I do without grain bowls? I should write a grain bowl book! Maybe there IS a grain bowl book! . And so here we are, in case you’re in need of some #grainbowl inspiration. . To build this bowl: . Sautéed veggies - I used yellow onion, red bell pepper, broccoli, and cilantro . Black beans, and/or chicken sausage . Any kind of rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice (long grain white rice here) . Avocado, cheese, cilantro, salsa, all optional

Creativity in the kitchen...try it, it’s fun! I made these super power bites using only the ingredients I had on hand. While I have used recipes in the past, I felt comfortable enough to just wing it. These are amazing and super satisfying! They are the perfect snack to hold you over post-workout until your lunch or dinner. These power bites are loaded...hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, pecans, almond butter, a little tahini because I didn’t have enough almond butter, cinnamon, vanilla extract, dash of vegan chocolate protein powder and chocolate chips. Rolled into a ball and then rolled into crushed coconut chips. Also as an astrology nerd I’m channeling more creativity to align with this Gemini season. ✨💫 What are some ways you can get more creative? #blissballs #powerbites #veganprotein #plantprotein #plantstrong #creativeinthekitchen #geminiseason #channeling #improvcooking #wilmingtonvegan

I realised part way through making pasta I had virtually nothing to put with said pasta so it was improvisation city! The result was this. Fettuccine con Prosciutto Cotto e Piselli. Or, fettuccine with an old end of ham, some frozen peas, a buttload of sweet, soft onions, and a mountain of Parmesan, all tossed together with a little chicken stock and aged balsamic.

Tonight I doubted myself for a second. I thought, maybe I should do something besides lemon and olive oil on the halibut for a change. But then I realized I like lemon and olive oil. . And if I like how this tastes and it works for my family, why do I feel like I need to test something new? . Sometimes I think we expect too much of ourselves when it comes to cooking. We see so many different things on social media and even supposedly simple meal delivery kits come with a variety of different cuisines. But the truth is almost every restaurant specializes in a certain style or cuisine. In fact, in most other areas of our lives we accept that we have a style and we go with it - fashion, music, interior design. But for some reason we feel like we need to make a variety of different cuisines and ignore our cooking styles and preferences. . My style is olive oil and lemon, salt and pepper, a handful of ingredients, improvising as I go and using whatever looks beautiful to me. I also like tacos and believe all things can be made into a taco. Sometimes I like to follow a recipe and try a new flavor profile but like the dress in the back of my closet, only for a special occasion. . So here’s your official permission to cook like you cook. Your style is good enough and you don’t need to be a master of all cuisines. . Tonight’s meal: . Grilled halibut with lemon and olive oil . Peppers and shallots with oil and salt, cooked in a pouch on the grill + cilantro if you don’t want yours to go to waste . Taco necessities - tortillas, avocado, cheese, lettuce

Does anyone else have family members or roommates with opposite taste preferences? . . My five year old isn’t into fish but would likely disappear if not for bread and pasta and my three year old lives for salmon night and says bok choy is his favorite food but seems to be on a self-imposed low carb diet. . . In the spirit of not making entirely separate meals I often serve plain pasta or rice as a side when we’re eating fish or a meal my daughter doesn’t love. This allows me to avoid fighting with her or bribing her to eat food she’s not into (I mean if I’m being honest I’m not sure I really liked seafood until I tried the fish from @samedayseafood about five years ago) while still enjoying components of the same meal. . . Also, sometimes the unlikely pairings really work out well, like in this case. . . Grilled salmon with olive oil and lemon from our friends @samedayseafood . Plain pasta with olive oil. . Same cabbage slaw repurposed from last night with an Asian Vinaigrette (dressing recipe in my Summer Meal Guide, link in profile). . Build your own bowl and serve with extra vinaigrette on top. . .

Does anyone else drink sparkling water in a wine glass when you still want it to be the weekend but Monday morning starts really early these days? 🙋‍♀️ . . This meal’s a great way to ease into the week because the BIG flavor comes from the toppings, meaning you can cook extras and keep the main components plain to use in new ways as the week goes on. . . To recreate: . . Grilled pork tenderloin (just salt and pepper so you can improv throughout the week) + plain brown rice (also so you can improv and serve to picky eaters) + cabbage slaw with slivered almonds and scallions (use the pre-chopped kind for a shortcut and add almonds and scallions) + Asian Vinaigrette on the slaw (recipe in my Summer Meal Guide, link in profile) + Kimchi (any kind you like). And if fermented foods are still a little 😳, I get it, sriracha works too.

This meal really surprised me. . When I looked in my fridge it looked pretty bare - a few bell peppers, some spring onions from last week, and some sad looking cabbage (plus the usual items like garlic, ginger and carrots from my Capsule List). I almost texted my husband to ask him to pick something up on his way home but I thought, “Wait no, Kelly, this is what you do, you can figure this out,” and I decided to go with a stir fry type dish. . We also had some ground turkey on hand which didn’t seem like something I’d normally pair with cabbage or put in a stir fry but 🤷‍♀️. I put the turkey in a pan with grapeseed oil and cooked it with just salt so I could keep some plain for the picky eaters and I started some rice. . While the turkey cooked, I started chopping veggies and realized the sad cabbage was too sad and almost called my husband to ask him to pick up cabbage but I found some kale in the depths of my fridge instead. Kale isn’t normally something I’d put in a stir fry but I didn’t want it to go bad so 🤷‍♀️. . After the turkey was cooked I sautéed the veggies with a little ginger, garlic and scallions (setting aside some first for the picky eaters) and then mixed some of the turkey back in and served it all over rice. I added a drizzle of tamari soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and sesame seed oil and topped it with sesame seeds and sriracha. . The kids liked/tolerated their deconstructed versions, the littlest guy loved his meal, and the end result was so delicious that I was happy to have extras for lunch (which by the way would also make great wraps or lettuce wraps if you wanted to mix things up).

QUÉ COMO? / WHAT DO I EAT? Es algo que muchas amistades y familiares me preguntan con frecuencia 😅 En esta y en mis demás publicaciones pues ya tienen una idea. Algo que procuro comer con frecuencia son las habichuelas, por las proteínas que tienen, su alto valor nutricional y lo positivas que son para mantener la salud intestinal al igual que los distintos tipos de lechugas y “hojas”. Esto fue lo que me inventé ayer. 🌮 🌮 Ensalada mexicana: lechugas variadas, maíz que me encanta, habichuelas, tomates, ají morron, cebolla, queso feta, cilantro, sal, pimienta, limón y un toque de picante (sirracha). Acompañado de unos hongos a la parrilla sazonados con dressing de ensalada “Italian Vinaigrette”, ajo, sal y pimienta. (Sii que raro con dressing, pero estaban buenísimos 😱🤩) Crema agria, chips y masa de tacos. Sólo me faltó el guacamole! Me lo comí como tacos rellenándolos con un poquito de todo y luego terminé con los chips. Riiico😋. 👉🏼Se comerían este invento? Con tacos o chips? ————————————————— WHAT DO I EAT?

Cooking without any sort of plan ahead of time may be stressful, but somehow it’s more satisfying when shit actually goes right. . Somehow managed to improv cook again and made French toast, potato hash, and a white gravy. Mom helped with cooking the potatoes and the turkey bacon. . Playing wise, I played myself making the French toast and should have probably went with a sunny side up. Oh well, at least everyone is eating it.

I learned from him and threw together these Asian style home fries w carmelized ham, onions seaweed and sesame seeds. They're surprisingly good. 😁🍲#improvcooking #potatoes #asiancooking

Do you have a grill pan? What do you use it for most often? . Finding this very useful for roasting veggies on our gas grill since it was 91 today 😳. 91, in April 😳😳. . Shown with asparagus, green beans, spring onions, broccoli, and grape tomatoes (tossed in oil, seasoned with salt and pepper).

Easter Dinner was pretty much a @penzeys2.0 Penzey's advertisement lol. Prime Rib with minced garlic and Quebec Beef Spice, roasted potatoes with Garden Salad seasoning, and salad with Sicilian Salad Seasoning and homemade dressing using Italian Dressing Base. I also made sort of a green bean casserole, but without French fried onions, because I didn't have any. Instead I made q crispy bread crumb topping with sauteed garlic, panko, and lemon zest. The green beans were a bit too soupy but the topping was on point. #dinner #wfd #cooking #food #foodpics #easterdinner #holidayfood #primerib #penzeysspices #improvcooking #fiestaware #familymeal

I had no milk, butter, or maple syrup. I did really really want to make french toast, so I dug around the pantry til I found coconut cream, which I used to replace the milk, butter, and maple syrup 🥰 also found a random bag of powder sugar from an old box mix to make a glaze. 🇫🇷toast #improvcooking

Chinese chicken salad or pasta bowl? . I love a two for one meal. This Chinese chicken salad tastes awesome on its own and also mixes well with the leftover rice pasta I served on the side. . I don’t like to make two meals but when I’m serving something I know is a stretch for my pickier eaters I try to add something I know they’ll like so I’m not worrying they’ll be hungry and tempted to make them a separate dinner. . Check out stories later today for the how-to on this one. . P.S. if you’re in the Bay Area and attending the Summer of Freedom no-cooking party you may see the dressing I used on this salad featured in a number of different ways.
