Do new recipes scare you too?

Updated: Feb 5, 2020

As I continue on my quest to find thee most flavorful, simplest, antioxidant packed, low inflammation recipes for the Back 2 Bliss Back Pain Protocol recipe list & meal plan…..I just had to STOP to share this one with you.


My cousin, who is an internal med doctor in Las Vegas - and has a vegan lifestyle - shared this with me a few months ago and I finally got up the ‘courage’ to try it.


Honestly- I have to admit - it takes courage for me to make a new-to-me recipe.


In my head this is what I hear:

“It will take too long”

“New is scary”

“Looks too hard - stick with the easy recipes you know”

“I’m not sure if I will like it”


And pretty much EVERY time I actually take the plunge and make a new recipe (whether I like it or not) my brain says:

“That didn’t take as long as I thought”

“New is exciting”

“It wasn’t as hard as I thought the recipe looked”

“How would I have known if I liked it if I didn’t even try?”


So before you even read this recipe and have the same apprehensive thoughts that I had….just try it -- OR use this as motivation to try a different recipe that you have been putting off to try because you have thoughts that don’t serve you.
