Yes, there are days when you just can’t do it. Another benefit to buying whole food is that you
can quickly put together a simple meal. With not much in the way of leftovers in the frig, place
some whole foods on a plate. Slice a tomato and an avocado on a plate with some bread and
butter. Set it out likes it’s a real meal. Don’t rush it because you didn’t actually cook it all. Sit down and experience each individual taste.
One of my favorite simple meals is a fried egg sandwich on toasted homemade bread with lettuce and tomato. It’s good to go in less than five minutes and I’m in bliss. Maybe I’ll even eat two.
Tossed salad and scrambled eggs, remember that one. It’s a great, easy, simple meal to have in
minutes. Especially after being out late at night and coming home a bit hungry, before going to
bed make this and feel content inside.
Some days are so busy getting things done—and when they do finally get done it’s not at a certain
time like lunch time or dinner time. You work hard until they get done—time doesn’t matter—
you’re starving, ravenous, in fact. At a time like this you reach for things you know and crave. The
best thing about this kind of food is that it’s quick—you know that pan to mouth it’s only going to be about 5—10 minutes max. I have my Go-To foods to fill me up fast:
I love my pommes frites with spicy ketchup.
A quesadilla with salsa and sour cream or whatever can fill it up along with the stringy melting cheese.
A baguette with Nutella.
Cornbread with beans.
Sourdough bread toasted with melted brie.
A grilled cheese on sourdough with bacon and
Nachos with lots of cheese and anything that will
go with them, leftover meat, beans and salsa.
Any leftovers—if you have them—in the fridge
lucky enough to taste better the next day.
Eggs any which way you feel like having them.
This is ‘just plain eatin,’ it is not always a rounded meal per se. It is needed to fill you up fast, and not be fast food. Times like these happen to everyone and we need the comfort after a
stressful time of work or just plain life. The joy of this kind of eating is that we always go for what we know and love. Time to get home fix something quick to eat, get into your jammies, EAT and get some serious sleep. It does help to call your best friend and vent while eating—and usually talk about what you’re eating for just a quick second to get an approving ‘mmmm’ from them while sitting on the couch with your feet up on the coffee table.
There you have it: Life happens; Work happens; and you get stressed and tired. The dishes can
wait. Life is not logical; in many cases it is a contradiction.
