At the risk of sounding really nerdy, all of my Friday Finds are Whole 30 inspired! I have been spending more time in the kitchen the past couple of weeks. Not really because I have to, but because I actually want to. I didn’t dislike cooking before W30, I just didn’t care to spend much time doing it. And, I felt like I was in a rut, making the same things week after week. I am happy to say, that has changed! For many of my meals during W3o, I have kept it simple, but I have also been inspired and motivated to try out new recipes.
These are a few things that I have used, or had my eye on this week. Its funny to sound excited about aprons (#1, 3, 5), but how adorable are these? Definitely a step up from the old, ratty Starbucks apron that managed to travel with me when we moved from Albuquerque to Dallas 10 years ago! I am sure I am breaking some Starbucks rule by keeping it, but it wasn’t really intentional, and it reminds me of the fun times I had working there while I was in college. Still, one of these aprons would make cooking a more stylish affair. The dressing emulsifier (#2) is awesome. It mixes up homemade dressings quickly and easily, and comes with a lid to seal it and store in the fridge. Since I have been also making my own condiments, these chalkboard labels (#4) are perfect to put on jars or containers. You can use chalk or chalk pens to write on them. I bought this peeler (#6) to make “Zoodles,” noodles out of zucchini. Works great, and they are a good substitute for pasta. Geez, I feel so domestic these days! Happy Friday!
