Cooking for my Husband | Getting my husband to eat tofu

As those of you who are subscribed to my newsletter know, one of my goals for 2023 is to get into the “best shape I can reasonably attain.” LOLOL. I know, it sounds very lawyerly. As I talk about in the newsletter, while it’s important to challenge yourself, it’s equally important to identify achievable goals. Getting into the “best shape of my life” is not realistic for me. Why? Well, I still struggle every day with detaching health from my size. For me, “getting into the best shape” means having a handle on not just my physical health, but also my mental health. That means getting into the “nitty gritty” of WHY I have so much trouble divorcing my worth from my appearance, and then slowly (but surely) dismantling the lies I’ve lived with for 43 years. That’s not something I can realistically do in one year; but, it’s something I can work towards while also committing to fueling my body in a way that optimizes my fitness.
For anyone who has struggled with this, you know that meal time can be unusually stressful. In order to combat the angst that often attends the question “What should we eat today?” I like coming up with simple, straight forward recipes that I know I will enjoy eating practically every day, lol. Sad to say, the day-to-day meals of THIS food blogger are, in actuality, pretty boring. I have a handful of staples that I have on rotation, because I know they will make me happy AND make my body happy. Win-win, right?
You can find the full recipe, instructional video, and nutritional info on The Kollective ( but below is a list of everything I added to this burrito:
Cooked tofu
vegan salad dressing
cooked quinoa
cooked black beans
