When I went from being busy on the road to working quietly from home, cooking regularly (and better) was something i was looking forward to and it’s now a light and sweet part of life ever since. But at first, I had no clue where to start or what kinds of dishes I could rotate for a bit until i found new ones to add to my repertoire.

Every meal doesn’t have to involve a big production to be tasty, healthy, filling and enjoyable.

Too Busy To Cook? Let’s talk, sis…

For women called and willing to work at home, here are a few posts for inspiration with gentle reminders that you’re meant for more than a career and your days or life don’t need to look glamorous or be jam-packed to be purposeful.

a l’il pre-roll so you can have an idea of the foundation and flavours that match the photos here: daughter of The King of Kings enjoying a calm kitchen: bajan trini kalinago with an international palette making vegetarian meals at home. In other seasons, i’ve eaten only ital/vegan for about 5 years and the opposite for a shorter stint. Now, it’s strictly healthy, light yet filling vegetarian food. Sharing recipes ideas to help you spice-up your homecooking journey. Light loving reminder (to me too): what comes out of our mouth matters more than what goes in. Words are meals too.
