#58 - Cook Smarter - Here's How To Never Waste An Ingredient Again

Do you ever feel like you have ingredients at home that you just can’t use?

Challenge accepted ;).

Now, I’ve had a lot of practice turning seemingly “random” ingredients into simple and delicious meals with tons of variety — it’s what I do inside of Your Dinner Is Planned! But I want to encourage YOU to think outside the box as well.

Why? Because defaulting to another night of spaghetti just gets boring after a while, and I’m here to show you that trying new, creative dishes doesn’t have to be a struggle!

Today I’m sharing a ton of recipe ideas using different ingredients you guys shared with me on Instagram.

#56 - Jazzy Travels (Tanzania)

If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably saw that in December, my husband and I went on a safari in Africa in lieu of having a wedding!

Fun fact: ever since I was a kid, I said I would NOT have a wedding. It just felt, well, boring to me! Instead, I wanted to go on a safari.

Fast forward to when I found myself engaged, there I was, trying to plan a wedding.
We were talking dates, calling venues, working on guest lists. And then suddenly, it hit us… why the heck are we doing this when we could be doing a safari instead?

So that’s what we did

Now, you guys had a TON of questions about our safari, so this week’s episode of the Dinner Table Talk podcast is all about getting your questions answered (because living a healthy, sustainable lifestyle isn’t just about what you eat… it’s about how you live!).
