Cooking in the Summer
Monday, July 19, 2010
Last night, I cooked a lovely dish high in fiber, low in calories, good mix of protein, complex grains and vegetables that is very low fat. Had a serving for lunch today which is not the norm. I have been hitting up Target for frozen entrees that are under $2.50 and under 300 calories.
I don't have central air, just units in my bedroom and office so the kitchen is hot. As much as I sweated last night, it was still so satisfying. I did flee the kitchen when I finished leaving the pots to wash up maybe tonight.
I need to figure out how much to cook in the summer. In the winter I nearly always have part of a pot of soup ready to warm up. I am very uncomfortable in the heat and my appetite is weird - definitely trend to cold foods and also to more sweet that fat which is where my cravings are in the winter.
No great revelations - just musing.
