Steel cut oatmeal
Hummus cuke wrap
Dinner out E2 meeting (madras lentils over rice)
Don't know if that is going to happen. The roads are slick and the temps are not supposed to get any warmer today. So a Plan B is needed. I just may stick with oatmeal for dinner as digestive issues have once again reared its ugly head, So I may be required to stay at home anyway. Whatever the day brings, I'm ready for it.
The comments from yesterday blog about healthy lunches being the norm got me thinking about our environment. What we have in our homes is what we will eat. I could NOT reprimand my son for snacking when he pulled out an apple and a Persian cuke from the frig. I was pleased when at the market not once but twice, last week,I was asked about stuff in my cart. With over 40,000 items in the store it would be difficult to see the little spot for the portobello mushrooms. Hmmm... folks are checking out my cart. So what does my cart say about me?
It is nice to have healthy foods in the pantry to draw from. It has also meant changing the meals I prepare. My cooking style is Quick and Easy and get it on the table. (With four guys in my house,three of them swimmers, that was a necessity,) the schedule has lightened up, but quick and easy gives me times to do other things. Sure brown rice takes 45 minutes... but it is easy and I plan for the time.
I go to the store with a list of my NEEDS.(not wants) The list helps avoid temptation. The list keeps me from forgetting stuff. It does annoy me when they do not have what I want and that can be a frequent occurrence. C'est la vie! Adapt!
What kind of cook are you?
