I hope this post finds you healthy and well.
How goes the quarantine cooking?
We’re several weeks in now, so I suspect that the novelty of staying in every night has worn off. I suspect also – from what I’m reading on Instagram and Facebook – that you might be ready for some lighter, fresher meals.
I have some moves for you.

These Fish Tacos with Roasted Pineapple are from The 30-Minute Paleo Cookbook and they couldn’t be easier to make. They require only one pan, are pretty much no-fail, and are packed with bright, fresh flavor. The amazing Brenda Score of A Farm Girl’s Dabbles generously shared the recipe on her blog – head over there and make them this week!
To see just how easily they come together, check out this little demo I did over on the Minneapolis/St Paul Magazine Instagram page.
They would also be fantastic with the Spicy Cilantro Pesto from Kickass Condiments: 20+ Little Recipes That Change Everything.
I also created the demo above for the AnyTime Fitness Facebook page, talking through the basics of simple batch cooking and how to use it to buy time – and to eat healthfully and deliciously – the rest of the week.
If you are bored and frustrated with starting dinner from scratch every night – and you’re less than amused with how comfort-snacking and/or takeout are making you feel – batch cooking with fresh ingredients can restore your sanity, make meal prep fun, and guarantee that you’re eating bombtastic, nutrient-dense food most nights of the week. To me, batch cooking = delicious freedom!
If you’re in Minnesota, I hope you’re enjoying the weather and finding ways to get outside. I’ve busted out my mom jeans chairs – beach chairs made from the most hideous stone-washed denim ever, very circa 1989, they even have ugly little pockets on them – which I keep stashed in the back of my car. On a beautiful day, I can post up just about anywhere for a even just a few minutes and catch some sun. It makes a big difference in my day and mood!
I’ll leave you with this post I wrote for Minneapolis/St Paul Magazine’s Be Well blog, about Foods to Eat for Stress & Anxiety from a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective. It’s no mystery to any of us that choosing the most nutritious foods is more important than ever. A healthy immune system requires nutrients, pure and simple. I’m happy to be helping you find delicious, nutrient-dense foods and recipes during this stressful time.
And hopefully some fun in creating them too!
Be well and safe!
