And not just when it comes to getting up in the morning. I think I hit it on writing my second post… and on getting serious with eating better.
I guess you could say I had a bit of a food… relapse? a last hurrah? Something like that. I will say over the 10 days or so I’ve been half good. But that means I’ve also been half bad. I ate puffy cheese doodles. I drank some Diet Pepsi. And instead of eating a salad yesterday for lunch I ate a mini pizza. I rationalized that it wasn’t all bad because I ordered one with broccoli… and then they forgot the broccoli.
Some of the good things I did do included making a healthy dinner this past Monday: Turkey sausage, kale and brown rice. I browned the sausage, cooked the rice according to the directions on the package, and then I simmered the washed kale in some water and seasoned it with a little salt, pepper and nutmeg. After I finished cooking the sausage I used the same pan to sauté an onion and some garlic, which I then added to the kale.
It was seriously yummy.
Kale is so good for you, and this was easy and quick to make. I forget things like this during the week if I don’t plan ahead. I have the last of the leftovers for my lunch today — so now I can’t buckle and order something unhealthy come 1pm. I think during my lunch break I will look for some healthy recipes to make over the weekend.
