Episode 58: What to Cook Now, Plus our Fall Pantry Staples

Filed Under:


Share This:


Fall is a busy time for parents, and also the start of holiday cooking. On top of adjusting to new (and more limited produce) in most places around the country, we’re also about to contend with an uptick in classroom parties, family gatherings, potlucks and more. In this episode, the second in an accidental quarterly series, we talk about what we’re cooking and stocking up on this fall — and what we think you should be cooking and stocking your pantries with too.

This week’s episode is made possible by MadeGood Foods and Banza Chickpea Pasta.


Spring Cleaning is Bullsh*t

Seems like we’ve got an accidental quarterly series on our hands! After the popularity of our first what to cook now episode in spring, we figure we should go at it again (and again and again) as the seasons — and our cooking and cravings — change.

This time, we not only tell you what we’re cooking (and planning to cook!) this fall, we also fill you in on how your pantry plays into the fun.

Here are the recipes, products, and resources mentioned in this fall-tastic episode:

Between school-safe snacks for lunch boxes, lower-sugar snacks to avoid the dreaded after-school sugar crash, and fortifying snacks to fuel after-school activities, it’s hard to find products you can just grab and go any time, any day.

That’s what makes our sponsor MadeGood so fantastic! Their products are free of the common allergens, made in a peanut- and tree nut-free facility, certified organic, and non-GMO.

Each individually-wrapped package also contains a FULL serving of veggies that you 100% cannot taste.

Have you ever wanted to reduce your carb intake? Do you sometimes worry that serving pasta (again) isn’t providing your family with the nutritious dinner you want to serve up?

Well we’ve got a solution: Banza chickpea pasta 

Banza pasta works, tastes, and feels just like regular pasta, which is the kid-win, but has nearly double the protein, three times the fiber, and 30% fewer net carbs, which is the mom win. It’s also gluten-free, vegan, and non-GMO!
