I hear it all the time, "now that the kids are gone, I just don't want to cook anymore. It's so much harder to cook for one or two people anyway."
Hey, I hear you. I've lived alone and I felt this way for a long time.
Surely it's harder to cook for less than it is for more....but did you just hear that?
Because it sounds kind of backward....and actually it is backward. It' EASIER to cook for fewer people!
Less food to buy, fewer meals to make, less time it takes to make them, less clean up....You just don't think it's worth it!
And let me tell you, it is more important than ever! Yes, your health is more important now than ever before.
For your energy, for your peace of mind, for you grown kids and grandkids or unborn kids, for your career and financial health; your health is more important than ever.
Because of that, I want to give you something: a month of meals, recipes, and grocery lists totally done for you. No planning, email searches,...
I've been loving in mixing in the flavors of SPRING !!
Yes, it is finally here
This was a mango salsa I made to go on top of fish:
2 diced mangos
1 diced bell pepper
1/4 diced red onion
juice of 1 lime
Pinch of red pepper flakes, salt and pepper
Put it on fish, chicken or a chip! It is fantastic
These "what I ate in a day" are a lot of fun (for me ). This was a typical day for me:
I started with a green smoothie; this one was zucchini, spinach, flax, avocado, spirulina, and collagen.
For lunch, I mixed half a can of tuna with whole grain mustard and Trader Joes everything but the bagel seasoning. I used sliced zucchini like chips and dipped it into the tuna salad alongside some hummus.
Ever since I brought the cheese cracker recipe on Show Me St.Louis I have been eating them non-stop. So good! I snacked on those in the afternoon. They are perfect when you want something salty and crunchy, but don't want all the carbs.
For dinner, I had sliced romaine, the other half of the can of tuna mixed the same as at lunch with steamed broccoli (topped with parmesan cheese ).
This is my favorite way to eat; tons of green veggies balanced with protein and a little cheese
Who has time to get a healthy meal when you're busier than ever?
What usually happens is we're forced to get a convenient meal, not a healthy one. This looks like a fast food meal, something from the gas station, a delivery meal, or something you can quickly eat in the car.
Health usually doesn't come into play for these meals! If you look at the decline in our nations health in the last 70 years, you can see exactly how well these types of foods serve your health....not well!
It is so important to take the time to meal prep, or source healthy and convenient meals.

I was interviewed on Fox 2 Now recently about New Year's resolutions.
Kim asked, "how do you make a New Years diet easy to stick to?"
I told her by not going on a diet! Seriously, you don't need another diet!
No one does. We've all tried one, and rarely do they work.
You need something practical and realistic, especially during this hectic time of year.
What is more practical and realistic than healthy balanced meals, designed by a nutritionist, ready to eat, and delivered to your door?

Italian food rule #1: quality of quantity. If it is not up to par, it is not eaten. You look at the tomatoes there set to ripen; some are so red they are almost worthy of Rudolph’s nose, but the Italian will tell you “no, not ready!”. The food attitude is a little bit of the highest quality product possible because there is no point in a lot of merda (-->Italian curse word).
This is exactly the properties upon which our meal service is based!! Quality balanced meals. Proportioned for your convenience. Local, seasonal, flavored to perfection. That is how you should be eating at every meal!!
