2019 has come and gone, and the new year is upon us. It’s time to think about those New Years Resolutions we all so love to fail. Would you like to try one with me this January?
Since 2016, Epicurious has led the charge in what’s called the COOK90 challenge. Since its inception, they’ve even published a cookbook with a 90 day meal plan to help you complete the challenge which is as follows: cook three meals a day every day for a month. There are plenty of reasons to give it a try, and for 2020, that includes sustainability. The more meat-free meals, the better. This is, however, a personalized challenge. If you do decide to COOK90, do it how you want. You can check out this year’s primer here for more information.
Now, what does COOK90 mean for Eating Normal? It means that we are going to do this together. You and I will work to eat more consciously, discover new recipes and ingredients, and maybe help reduce the carbon emissions of our farming system one meal at a time.
I’ll check in every week with an article, but I am also interested in starting an Eating Normal COOK90 support group on facebook to keep myself (and you, if you’re interested in joining me) accountable for our 90 meals in January. This group would not only exist to share pictures of our meals together, but share easy recipes from across the internet to help keep our COOK90 friends cooking through the month. You can join us for COOK90 at Eating Normal COOK90 2020 to join the discussion.
An idea born in Normal, Illinois, Eating Normal hopes to chronicle the eating Experiences of a Red bird.
