Limiting Beliefs are Keeping You Out of the Kitchen and Fall Recipes

Limiting beliefs: The things YOU tell yourself that, over time, you have come to believe to be true. These are things that other people may not think about you, things that you have an insecurity about and the things that are ultimately holding you back.


Here is the thing with limiting beliefs, they typically have been part of you for years and years, they took years to manifest and won't go away over night. But, identifying what are some things YOU believe to be true that are actually holding you back from reaching your goals is the first step in the right direction.


For most of my adult life I have told myself and believed that I am not good at cooking. Therefore I shied away from making foods that required much more than starting the microwave or boiling water. I was nervous to feed other people, for fear that the food actually sucked and I would die of embarrassment. Whenever there was a pot luck I was that person bringing in store bought food. Now, there is nothing wrong with that unless, like me, you are doing it because you have a fear of the kitchen.


It wasn't until recently that I decided to experiment with foods. I focused on "one bowl" recipes, those seem the most simple. I gravitated towards recipes that have few ingredients and always foods that are familiar to me. As with anything, practice makes perfect. I have a made few things that were NOT good, and then a few recipes that turned out not only really tasty, but I have even gotten comfortable trying my own experiments with adding or removing some ingredients listed.


So many of my clients struggle with getting into a routine of cooking home-cooked meals, meal prepping for the week or even eating WHOLE, minimally processed foods. I've come to learn that 9 times out of 10 it is because they, like me, don't feel comfortable in the kitchen due to limiting beliefs.
