Anyway, I wanted to ask you your thoughts on Lunch. When I'm at work, I have very little time to eat, say 20 minutes, and so I like to eat something compact that provides lasting energy. So most days my lunch looks like this:
Throughout the day I eat: a protein bar, 2 rice cakes and 2 apples. I've realised that this is probably not enough, as I started to feel a bit weak by 6ish. I felt pretty snacky when I got in, and so I nibbled through some seeds, dried fruit and a rather large prune when I was cooking.
But I decided to cook! I'm quite proud. When I get home I usually can't be bothered so I just snack or eat a bowl of porridge.
Spicy Veggie Chapatti Wraps...what it is supposed to look like.
What my version looked like (after we made a quick dash to the shop, realising that we had forgotton the 2 main ingredients, chickpeas and a tin of tomatoes. Duh.)
And I ate this lot:
Sweet potato, chickpeas, a tin of tomatoes, curry powder, spinach and Greek yoghurt all mixed up. Pretty tasty, but I'm still not sure it's worth the amount of time it takes to cook. I'm still on the hunt for mega quick healthy meals, for a novice like me (so no Jamie's '15 min' meals...though I am tempted to see if I can meet the challenge).
Thoughts- being sensitive:
So I'm a pretty sensitive soul sometimes (thin skinned?) Today I was talking to someone important to me, telling them what I had eaten during the day. They insinuated that I was boring them and that they were ready to fall asleep. Granted, I guess it can be boring if you're not interested in food/cooking at all, but I felt as though they were saying that I was boring. I guess they were just trying to move me away from obsessing over what I've consumed onto more interesting topics, and after all, I am not just what I eat despite the popular saying. But meh, I felt a bit hurt.
I enjoy hearing about food and cooking anyway!
Hope you're all having good Mondays :)
