I was away for the weekend, and just got back to Brooklyn this afternoon. I had planned on cooking quite a few options for the week, but I hit crazy traffic and got home later than I expected. I did get some good things done though! BTW a while back I wrote this post and was thinking about it in the car on the way home, so I thought I'd share. It's about how to get right back your old healthy self after a vacation. This time I was only away for 4 days but I'm very much ready to sweat and eat some greens.
Today I prepared:
Baked oatmeal, a huge bowl of quinoa to use in a few different dishes, I made another batch of muesli, I hard boiled 6 eggs, chopped cucumbers, scallions, tomatoes, carrots, and a red pepper so salad making would be a piece of cake. I'm going to hit the grocery store tomorrow afternoon so I can whip up the rest of the magic that will keep me from ordering that mid week pizza.
Tomorrow I will post the recipe I used for the baked oatmeal!
A note about the foods I choose:
I make it a priority to buy local and organic foods as much as I can. I plan for the week, buy in bulk, absolutely use my left overs and I get courageously creative with our meals to save time and money. Since avoiding GMOs and other questionable icky unnatural ingredients is important to me, I give it the attention it deserves. I feel that cheap food (I'll talk more about this later) is an illusion. Over time using quality organic foods has drastically changed our lives for the better. I'm not an expert, I'm just good at experimenting so I've learned a lot.
My mission as a health coach is to help you live a courageously healthy life that you love. I'm hearing from my clients that they simply want to feel better. They want to feel in control of their health. Not only is this possible, but it can be joyful. Small steps, big results. Lasting change takes time, but luckily life is long.
( I invite you to take a deep breath after reading that last sentence.)
