We eat the same meal at home on Monday nights for dinner.
We aren’t in a rut. It’s not gourmet and there aren’t any secret ingredients.
We are being intentional.
Most of the world doesn’t have the luxury of having a pantry and refrigerator full of food with dozens of options. Meat is for the wealthy and fruit is a delicacy.
What better way to remind our kids how much we have than through their bellies?
We eat rice and beans every Monday, so we can remember how the rest of the world lives and eats.
Sometimes the best way to introduce a different perspective is by doing something different. And then repeating it often.
Cook brown rice, lightly salt, add fresh cilantro
Top with generous amount of black beans, seasoned with cumin.
Add fresh avocado.
It’s what we eat on Mondays. And it matters.
