The perfect vegetarian meal all in one pot with the best vegetarian quinoa chili! This recipe tastes just like traditional chili but with quinoa instead of meat, plus a secret ingredient!
As more and more food blogs pop up, the industry is becoming increasingly saturated with recipes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m the first person to applaud there being open access to blogging and providing people who might otherwise not have a platform, a place for them to share their voice. However, it also means that you can get caught in the “innovation trap” instead of sharing what you really want to share.
If it’s all been done before, what’s the point in sharing another vegetarian quinoa chili recipe?
This is when I turn to this video from Marie Forleo to remind myself (and hopefully you) why sometimes it’s worth sharing something that’s already been done before.
At the end of the day, every audience is different and every voice is different. Sure, it doesn’t exactly win the SEO game, but you know what beats SEO? Authenticity and being true to your passion rather than just trying to stand out and be different.
I don’t know if this passes or not, but whenever someone asks me for something people don’t know about me (a challenging question considering my entire life is on the internet) I always respond with “I’m a total book nerd”.
Maybe this comes as a surprise to you, or maybe it doesn’t but either way I’m probably reading a book right now. JK, I’m clearly writing this post, but if I weren’t, I’d definitely be reading.
I usually have about 3 books going at once. One memoir, one non-fiction and one educational book. I find myself being in different moods at different times so sometimes I want to read about someone’s traumatizing college drama, or tips on how to build a better garden or 15th century french mistresses. Gotta be prepared for all occasions!
But over the years I have amassed a huge collection, which thanks to my kindle has allowed it to travel with me. As a side note- anyone who is a big-time reader or looking to read more, I highly recommend investing in a kindle. It’s incredibly packable, light, and the battery lasts forever. But the best part for me is that there’s no temptation to browse the web or other kinds of distractions you find on tablet.s #TeamKindle for life!
