Let's talk about...

Food! Everyone's favorite topic!
I am definitely on a get healthy kick, exercising daily and all of that.  Luckily for me I already eat pretty healthily, you can ask Ben, I won't eat a meal unless it has something green... naturally green. On top of that I could basically eat just fruit and veggies for the rest of my life and be a-okay. Friends at work back home told me I was a rabbit.

I have found that it isn't as easy to eat healthy when you're living on your own.  In the 'Boro Ben and I would cook dinner together, which splits the work up.  Here it's all up to me. While it's not such a pain, after a day of dealing with tiny people, okay some of mine are actually bigger than me but whatever, I would just rather eat a bowl of cereal than deal with cooking something.  So I have decided to add crazy meal planner to my repertoire along with crazy cat lady.

 I have decided to start planning out my meals weekly and preparing them on Sunday. Well somewhat preparing them, I don't plan on preparing a weeks worth of salads and letting them get all wilted! I'm more so talking about pre-portioning my snacks for the week and cutting up all of my veggies and fruits so they are set to go.  

I've been learning a little bit from all of you bloggers out there just how to do this. I'm pretty excited about this new venture and I'm hoping it will help me to keep myself from eating a whole bag of pretzels, a healthier snack but not so good when you stuff your face with them.

I hope you'll be along for the ride as I try to figure out just how to cook all by myself... well until May when Ben get's here and I hand over the work! Just kidding, a little bit, well not really.

Miles has even been enjoying the green smoothie I've been putting together!

How do you make sure you're eating healthy?

    1. This kitty is by my feet within 3 seconds of my walking towards the kitchen.

  2. Isn't that just like a cat to think whatever you're preparing is really for them?
