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 more mindful of the portions that I served myself- especially when it came to sweets.
In 2010, I started baking cake pops as a way to share my take on portion control with friends & family. Over the years, my bite-sized treats became gifts, party favors and charity auction items for people looking to satisfy a sweet tooth without overindulging.
Now, I focus on developing savory recipes and only make cake pops for special occasions and holidays. Making them always reminds me that it's okay to start small, as long as you're willing to learn and grow.
But, I wasn't always known for my cooking. In fact, my roommates used to joke that I'd wake them up with the smoke alarm. Who doesn't love crispy bacon?
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 . I started reading lots of recipes and cooking more often.
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 and cleaned up, our evening was over.
After much frustration & food wasted, I realized that my family wasn't the only one struggling to enjoy healthy eating. I began testing menu items and asking friends to try my reheated meals. Needless to say, it became my top priority to simplify mealtime without compromising flavor or nutrition.
The time and headspace that prepared meals can help you gain throughout the week is a blessing and totally worth an afternoon of cooking. But how often are the best intentions interrupted?
