We've spent a fair amount of time on the podcast talking about food — our personal food philosophies, how our health has been transformed through food, the pros and cons of local food, and even our favorite guilty pleasures. One area we hadn't focused on until today, is where we find and maintain inspiration in the kitchen.

We start the conversation with stories around when we first got comfortable with cooking and being in the kitchen. We then touch on our current habits, from menu planning to food prep in order to get delicious meals on our respective tables. And because no one is immune to food ruts, we also spend a fair amount of time talking about where we find our mojo again.

In typical N+F fashion, we come from completely different backgrounds and eating styles, and yet, we have similar tools and techniques that we draw upon when it comes to food.

What about you?
