I had an interesting conversation with a friend this weekend.
She wants to eat “right” as she says, but complains that she just doesn’t know what to make.
Or what vegetables to buy and how to make those. So I gave her some tough love, and told her to quit moaning and to “Just Do it”
It’s not hard at all, it just takes some effort. Effort in the beginning of a new activity usually gives way to satisfaction and pleasure in no time at all.
For all of you out there that seem to struggle with it; here’s my advice. Just go to the store buy what you think looks fresh (whatever, zucchini, squash, spinach, asparagus, Brussels sprouts etc etc) and go home and MAKE IT! Make it any way you like, add some butter, olive oil, or coconut oil, use some of your spices and just experiment. Only by doing this will you figure out what flavors you like and how to make simple healthy dishes.
Breakfast this morning for me was such a meal. I looked in the fridge, saw I had a yellow squash. Next some left over red onion. Sauteed that in some olive oil, added a piece of left over tomato and sliced up some left over steak. Grabbed a to go container made a bed of green lettuce, added 1 teaspoon of balsamic and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Tossed the squash concoction on top. Easy right? nothing fancy, but the flavor was great.
Sunday morning I was in the mood for an omelet.
Made a big one stuffed with sauteed spinach and dandelion greens.
A little bit of tomato, some cheese and topped with scallions.
10 minutes perhaps?
Let me know how you made out.
On the site reader I’m seeing people reading and checking in from all over the world.
Thanks to everyone out there for reading!
