Let me be the first to say! I love food, but lately I am kinda over it. I mean my feelings toward food right now is just blehhhhh. Every so often I find myself going through this. I just get tired of cooking the same things over and over or I go to the same restaurant and get the same meal on the menu.
Obviously, food is everywhere these days. There are food blogs, instagrams, Facebook fan pages, YouTube channels, and much more. I keep reading about food crazes, the hot new veggie, clean eating, plant-based eating, raw, gluten-free, etc. I really cannot keep up. I know I am so behind the trend, but I am just now falling in love with making smoothies in the morning. Sometimes I can keep up. When the Kale craze hit I was on board and proud. To this day, if I can ever substitute Kale for my green, I will! Also, I adore kale Cesar salads and the kale slaw from Takorean! Yumm!
Chris has been working so hard on the track and on the court that I feel guilty feeding him whatever. So now I am forcing myself to really sit down and find food that is going to fuel his body, but also taste somewhat good. I know sometimes you just have to hold your nose and chew to get certain nutrients, but I know I can find a balance between healthy and tasty. A little of everything is good in moderation, right? And the everything I am referring to is a pinch more or salt there, squirt of teriyaki sauce here, and an extra teaspoon of butter there. ;).
I definitely will be taking advantage of Prime Now, Whole Foods online ordering, and Farmer's Markets through out the city on the weekends (I told you, I love my smoothies). I will update the blog soon with how I am going to organize our eating in a healthy and cost effective way. I am tired of paying UberEats and Einstein Bagels! I also found a cool meal planning template I am going to work on. I will post my finished product and my thoughts after a week of meal planning and attempting to add some "clean eating" meals. Stay tuned! Hopefully this works!
