This is my first post with my new computer. For the last few posts, I have formatted my thoughts on my iPad. Please don’t misunderstand, I love my iPad, truly. But emailing myself pictures to transfer to a post, well, it got a bit cumbersome.
So, what have you been up to? When preparing a meal for one, do you grab a handful of Cheerios, or do you set up a plate (or bowl) for yourself? SpecialK travels frequently for work, and I am here alone.
This dish looks ugly. But I would eat this any day, because I know how delicious it is.
Sometimes, it can elevate the eating experience, if you think about the plate you are going to eat. I saw the following plate, and thought, “Gee, I could have used some Romaine under the whitefish salad on this plate’. I thought it looked nice, and it was fun to eat as I added a slice of tomato to each cracker with whitefish salad on it.
The interesting thing about taking the time to arrange your food, is that you could get full faster. I could only finish 1/2 of the multigrain crackers that I had on my plate. You and I both know that if I had left the bag of crackers open, next to my plate, I would have consumed many more crackers. I actually felt full. That is almost mind numbing, eating healthy from a good looking plate actually made me feel full. Another trick I should have learned when I was younger!
I could easily reach into that bowl and grab a strawberry! I am glad I am learning more ways to satisfy my body, making new recipes I get to share with you.
Keep reading, there is a delicious chicken recipe that will make an appearance, soon.
