Are you one of those people who love grocery shopping? I am. Walking up and down the aisles. Thinking about what awesomeness I can cook for the week. Fondling fruit in the most disrespectful of ways. I enjoy it all- while I'm in the store. But come Tuesday I am completely over it. I mean I'm like to hell with all the groceries, show me the take out menu! What can I eat so that I don't have to do anything. The work week completely zaps the Gordon Ramsey right out of my system.
I'm trying to combat this life. I don't like it. I promise I wish I had a personal chef. My oh my, that would be epic. Just come home to some food that's hot and ready. Side by side with a full glass of red. Alas, that is not my luck. I married for love...not money ha!
So this week I'm trying to focus on meal prep and easy quick foods. I'm also working on cutting down my meat and amping up my fruits and veg. Don't worry, I'm not going vegetarian...yet, but I would like a heavier rotation of all those yummy plant based foods. I want my hair and nails to get longer. I want my skin to clear up. Have you ever noticed how absolutely glow-ey vegetarians are? Now some of them look haggard and dry, but mostly, veggies look really good. Dewey even. I want to look dewey damnit!!
So the hubs and I made some kale for the first time. I put it in my smoothies all the time, but I had NO IDEA it was so delicious cooked! Not gonna lie, I sautéed 2 pieces of bacon before throwing the kale in. I think next time I'll see how it tastes with just the kale and a little olive oil. I couldn't believe how good it was. We had it with Shrimp and brown rice. I could eat like that all the time. And it was quick. Think I've found a new staple!
That lighting is horrible. Its was late. My bad!!!
As a side note, in an effort to really move towards this healthier lifestyle, The hubs and I tried Kombucha today... It was absolutely terrible. Hahahahaha we hated it!
Have you tried Kombucha? What did you think? What about Kale?
