The best things in life
Aren't things.

I believe the best things in life are the pauses. The pauses we take to gather together for a meal with people we love and like. The pauses we take to visit a place we've never been before. The pauses we take to learn something new or give back or watch a cat video on the Internet.

Those pauses — long or short — are where life actually lives.

About Worthy Pause

Worthy Pause is a food, travel and other-things blog by Annie D'Souza — that's me.

In my Minneapolis kitchen, I lean heavily toward fresh, real ingredients and global flavors. Between my husband and I, our big-fat-Indian-Filipino-Iranian family is one of the most diverse you'll probably ever meet... and we definitely eat like it.

I was very into the paleo game for a while and still cook that way at home most of the time, so lot of the recipes on this blog are paleo, gluten-free, low-carb and Whole30-friendly. There are even a bunch of vegetarian and vegan recipes. Overall, you'll find a lot of easy plant and animal-based recipes here and plenty of helpful resources about that way of eating, but I try my best to avoid the nutritional dogma of it all. Just eat what makes you feel good (I do... sometimes that's chia pudding and sometimes that's croissants).

I try to capture travel adventures (the ones that inspire all these kitchen adventures!) and other pause-worthy moments here too.

Thanks for stopping by—say hello on Instagram or Facebook when you have a chance!

Cheers,
Annie

P.S. Of all the recipes on the website, I make this one most often.
