As a kid, you couldn't keep me out of the pantry. As an adult, not much has changed. I want to thank you for taking the time to visit here and for considering Satori Meals as part of your busy week.
With a family history of diabetes, I realized that I needed to be aware of my lifestyle choices but I wasn’t ready to give up sweets altogether. In 2010, I started baking cake pops & shared my take on portion control with friends & family. Over the years, my bite-sized treats became gifts, party favors & charity auction items for people looking to satisfy a sweet tooth without overindulging.
We’ve all heard it. “If you want dessert, you gotta finish your plate.” (In hindsight, I’ve learned that this rule applies to more than just food.) When I got married in 2018, my goal was to eat home-cooked meals as a family the way mine did while I was growing up . As working professionals with an hour commute and constant travel, this goal was exhausting. By the time my husband or I stopped at the store, cooked a healthy meal & cleaned up, our evening was over.
After enough frustration & food wasted, I started cooking small batches of versatile recipes & portioning my family's meals. Now, simplifying mealtime without compromising flavor or nutrition, is my top priority. The time & headspace that prepared meals can help you gain throughout the week is a blessing & totally worth an afternoon of cooking. But how often are the best intentions interrupted?
