Mundane Mid Week

After Mardi Gras/Carnival, most are either recovering or just plain worn out. These are the times when we feel weak and go for something cheap, fast, and easy. (enter joke here) We tend to find ourselves going for fast food for lunch or just pick something up for the family for dinner. It is times of weakness that we set ourselves on a course of falling into the old habits we leaned upon.
If you didn't bring your lunch to work today, buy local buy healthy, and buy REAL food. If you prepped food for the week for your family go ahead and make it tonight and fight the urge to pick up something from the drive through.
Good simple ideas for dinner are;
Make your own salads or tacos or even taco salads for the family.
Breakfast for dinner. Pancakes, eggs, bacon (bacon makes everything better), french toast, etc.
Asian themed lettuce wraps (chicken or beef, scallions, garlic, teriyaki or ponzu sauce, peanuts) and steamed rice.
Pasta with browned butter and mizithra cheese or Parmesan, with broccoli

Keep it simple and get over the hump of the mundane mid-week. let me know if you need any recipes for these meals or questions on how to prepare them, I would be happy to help.
Keep it REAL! Keep it FRESH! Keep it SEASONAL!
