Simplicity is KeyPosted: September 16, 2010
When the figurative plate of life gets too full, our own plates tend to suffer. Convenience takes precedence over health.
Animal crackers become a viable mid-afternoon snack. You begin to wonder if your students were onto something valuable with the whole “eating glue” business. You then remember you have a blog and that’s just too gross to subject your readers to, much less your intestines.
Five high fructose corn syrup elephants (not to mention a few shots of apple juice out of a dixie cup) later, I reclaimed my life and my belly. Busy and frazzled does not have to mean processed crap is okay.
Enter dinner, which I somehow consumed in three different areas of my house:
Chopped green lettuce + crumbled tofu + balsamic vinaigrette for the first course…(in the kitchen)
Corn for the second… (In my bed)
And peach POM soft serve for the third! (In the will-soon-be-an-office/den)
- 1 large frozen banana
- 1/2 frozen peach
- 5 ounces POM wonderful juice
I think had I not been freezing to death I’d have inhaled that bowl in three seconds flat – it was that delish! POM makes the most wonderful addition to smoothies and soft serve.
I promise, no matter how stressed and busy I get, no more thoughtless, nutrition-less meals and snacks!
What are your go-to “No time, no energy, but NO CRAP” meals?
