You can ask anyone who spends any amount of time with me and they will tell you that I eat the strangest combinations of foods.
Peanut butter toast and corn on the cob?
Brocolli and baked beans with corn on the cob for dessert ?
A spinach and berry smoothie with a slice of leftover asparagus and goat cheese whole grain pizza?
Just another day at my office folks.
Take yesterday for example.
After my power walk (which was SUPPOSED to be a run because of the NEAR PERFECT WEATHER but I forgot my sports bra YET AGAIN so I was forced to walk unless I wanted to knock someone out with one of my flopping puppies) *exhale* I got back into my work clothes and promptly went to the kitchen to prepare my lunch.
There I stood by the kitchen sink, corn on the cob within arms reach(which didn’t end up getting eaten sadly), asparagus soup heating in the zapper(so so so DELICIOUS!!), flax bread toasting in the toaster and me cutting up a perfectly ripe mango, sucking on its pit and nibbling on its skin (this is sounding like a Harlequin romance novel all of a sudden)….
And then it happened.
I was reminded by a few people in my office that I eat the strangest combinations of foods
And you know what? They’re not wrong.
Heck I’m two Spaghetti and Turkey Meatball Thursdays away from pulling a Buddy the Elf:
….OK I’m not quite that bad with my strange food combinations but one can comedically make that connection, and let me tell you, my husband often does.
When it comes to my meals, my approach is rather unconventional but simple all the same.
I know which nutrients I need to fill my body with each and every day in order for it to function at it’s very best and I eat the foods I love (and crave) in order to do achieve that goal.
Some days that means salad, a sandwich and a piece of fruit for lunch. Other days that means a spinach & berry smoothie with a slice of leftover asparagus & goat cheese whole grain pizza.
You say strange, I say delicious.
