Remember Google is Your Friend

It’s okay, you can admit it, sometimes recipes look like a foreign language. You can’t pronounce the ingredients and some of the brand names are unrecognizable. What’s worse, asking someone at the store for help can sometimes make you feel silly, like maybe you are the only adult on the planet who doesn’t ‘get it’.

 

These are the times when it helps to have a friend like Google. Sometimes just looking at pictures of the ingredients – or even what the package looks like – is enough to help you figure out where you should be looking for things in the grocery store. Sometimes a quick Google search will also help you figure out if you should be looking in your local grocery store or if you would have a better shot at finding the item at your health food store.

 

Google Doesn’t Just Help When You Are At the Store

 

Google might be your hero when you are in the store, but the awesomeness doesn’t end there. Google can also be your biggest help when you are ready to make your food.

 

So let’s say that your recipe calls for you to braise beef, finely chop vegetables and then saute those vegetables. This can all be very intimidating for someone who has not done it before. After you have already spent so much time hunting for recipe ingredients, you are likely now wondering if you can pull your recipe together at all. Luckily a quick Google search can help you figure that out. Just type in a few words to have videos, articles, and pictures right at your fingertips.

 

Google can also help you figure out what to do with your food after you have made it. For example, maybe you are so certain that you are going to love this recipe that you want to make a huge batch so that you can have some for later. A quick search can help you to figure out how to change the ingredient portions to match how much you want to fix, the best way to freeze the extra portion, and the best way to bring that frozen meal back to life.

 

And remember, there is no shame in jumping on a forum or asking someone for help. It might seem intimidating at first because you feel like you are asking questions that everyone else already knows the answer to. But remember, you are just starting your new way of eating, and at some point everyone in those forums or on that Facebook page started right where you are. And on the very slim chance they do make you feel silly for your questions, know that there are plenty of other supportive online communities out there that would be happy to have you.
