It’s hard to believe that there was once a time I couldn’t cook anything other than a baked potato or Top Ramen. Not wouldn’t…couldn’t. I still love a baked potato and Top Ramen.
But, well, it’s nice to know how to cook.
Want to know how to be a better cook? Stop eating meat for a decade. Too drastic? How about a couple of months?
No, no. Hear me out. Meat has so much natural flavor from its fat content that when you stop using it in recipes, you’re sort of forced to learn all about spices. Or, well, your food is going to be bland, if not down right tasteless. Vegetarians know how to cook. Trust me.
I got introduced to Morningstar Farms many years ago when I had no idea soy beans came in different forms other than milk and edamame. I was pretty floored after eating one of their Original Sausage Patties to find out it wasn’t actually pork. It’s remained my favorite from their product line after all these years. Sometimes I use them on these breakfast sandwiches, others times I just eat them alone for an afternoon snack!
I’m not about to give up my burgers and ribs, but I’ve never stopped buying the MorningStar Farms brand – they offer a great healthy alternative to beef and bacon, and variety so you’re not always cooking chicken.
With 30+ products and 600+ recipes, MorningStar Farms makes it easy to eat smart, whether you go meatless every day, or every now and then. Plus, they are always creating and introducing new products and flavors. The newest ones include Roasted Garlic & Quinoa Burger, Buffalo Chik Patties, Parmesan Garlic Wings, Mediterranean Chickpea Pizza and Baja Black Bean Pizza. Which would you try first?
