I often receive inquiries about the food I make for myself each week. Usually this is followed by said inquirer lamenting that he or she doesn’t have time to shop and cook meals at home. I get it. And I totally agree, it’s difficult.

One of the reasons I first became interested in nutrition was because of this notion that food can be healing. The idea that what we put into our bodies can have a direct link to our overall health and wellness. I suppose these days that sounds pretty obvious to most people, but before Whole Foods became so popular and wellness was such a buzzword, it didn’t seem so linear to me.
Summer has made her presence known. After a mild few weeks, it appears that the heat is here to stay.
Temps in NYC have been in the mid-90’s with high levels of humidity. Just gross. Frizzy hair, sweaty faces, stinky subway rides – the whole deal.
Good Morning friends!
Hope everyone enjoyed the weekeend. I did. I worked a little, saw some friends and on Saturday I ran in the 5 mile NYRR Pride Run. It was a great race, lots of spirit and an overall good time.
Let’s talk meal prep. It’s no secret that I am not a great chef. And I am not a big fan of cooking elaborate meals. My idea of cooking is more like “ingredient assembling” and so you’ll find me just throwing together meals at home or quickly putting something together that is portable so I can eat it at work.
Many times people assume that because I love nutrition and healthy food, I eat a super healthy diet all of the time. This is not totally true. Although I love green juice, plant-based food and I feel best when I am eating a well rounded, nutrient-rich diet – I am not perfect, nor do I try to be.
I drink wine, I like dessert, and I eat too many snacks when I am sad. No judgment.
For the most part, I am a planner. I guess you could call me “Type A”. I like to be prepared, show up early, and make to-do lists. However, when it comes to train travel, somehow I am always running out the door five minutes late, disheveled, arriving at the station breathless, with my scarf dragging on the floor, and sweating despite the fact that it is 30 degrees outside.
In fact that happened just a few hours ago.
If you are trying to save money and eat right, preparing meals at home is usually the way to go. But how annoying is it when you go to make a meal and what you find is slimy lettuce and mushy tomatoes? The worst right?
These days when it comes to meals, my priorities are that they be:
- easy to prepare
- somewhat tasty (a foodie, I am not)
