Set the Table 2018 | Week 8

Mung Beans.
Such a weird name.

I had never heard of them before diving into my studies in Dynamic Eating Psychology + Ayurvedic Nutrition. I bought them in bulk early this week and thought I'd experiment with them to kick off my 5th module of education at the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. I am so excited to begin cooking with them and to learn more about how Mung Beans can make you feel great.

I serendipitously found Sarah Britton's blog about Kichadi, a super comforting, warm "one pot wonder" that our digestive system simply adores. Renewal in a bowl.

This "Realistic Reset" is just what I am looking for to kick off March (when it really still feels like Winter) for my best.Spring.YET.

  • Each #SettheTable2018 post features a delicious family table recipe(s) to inspire your meal planning for the week.  
  • #CatchmyGrit on Instagram to follow the fun, the food and the family table reactions (good and bad) leading up to each weekend post. C'est la vie, I selfy-ishly light it UP in pics, videos and Instastories to keep truckin! 
  • New to this series? Revisit my favorite #SettheTable2017 recipe links here. Cheers to another year of sharing my crazy food adventures with Pure Barre Kildeer!  

I wonder if Mr Chris would do a kichadi reset with me (maybe if it's just for a day)?

To the Mullies we go...
