creativity + zoodles

I have committed to create more than I consume. to continue capturing my best self thru my creative feats. A fitness concept to start — an open canvas to connect to others as I connect to myself. To force feeling, vulnerability, open up + dig in. cooking is also creating. connecting to the craft of food shared + consumed. to fuel my body instead of fill it - with creativity, with connection.

Oodles of zoodles with coconut oil, capers, crushed paper, octopus + Krispy kale. tenderly twirled to chopsticks, before messily slurping excess juice bowl to mouth + finished with fingertips wiped down the sides. creativity just tastes better. The process, the journey almost more enjoyable then the outcome. But this was pretty damn good. recipe below.
