Diet Opinions, Rants from My Kitchen, Recipe-ish

I am Eating Garbage & Feeling Lazy! We are on a 3 week trip to quick meal planning

I have been reading a lot of different snipits on snack foods that are good for you but I have been avoiding them like the plague. I just read the ingredients on the yogurt I bought on sale (deviation from my typical organic plain yogurt brand) and it has corn syrup as ingredient number 3, to top it all off I just want to eat cheese and pimento cheese dip with pretzels. I feel uncreative and unmotivated in the kitchen and have for weeks, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

I am not sure when I fell of the wagon, but I did, and getting back on is harder than it looks. I work 45 hours a week right now so I understand busy schedule, I also am avoiding the gym and making excuses like I have to make dinner or we have to do x, y, z. It all stops here. For the next 3 weeks we are on a trip to healthy, fast and cheap meal planning. I am not the best at keeping a budget, but I know that I am on one. Tomorrow is Sunday so don’t forget to buy your paper and clip your coupons, that is what I will be doing after work.

So, start right now because I am going to the market this morning for fresh veggies, after I go for a run or a walk. Get in the freezer and pull out a roast and stick it in the crock pot, it is going to be a busy day of chores around the house. I have weeds to pull and bushes to trim and may even plant some bulbs. Since I have to work tomorrow I am going to start my chili today and get my veggies ready for the week. You will be busy but it will be worth it, I promise.

Things to get at the farmer’s market today:

  • apples
  • onions
  • sweet potatoes
  • arugula
  • romaine
  • tomatoes
  • squash (whatever is in season)
  • broccoli
  • spinach (if it is reasonable)
  • lemons
  • carrots
  • celery
  • peppers
See you back in the kitchen and good luck!

When you are asked over and over again for tips on how to find a job, increase your sales, how to create connections or recommendations for restaurants, recipes and creative party fare at some point you have to do something with all of the information. Those who know me and have borrowed “recipes” from me know that I do not write anything down and can barely measure, I do not know how to follow instructions and my strength is not in the detail but in the experience of your senses.
