Lunch is Served, Ma'dam...
(In an old English butler tone) Lunch is served, ma'dam...
If only I had someone to make my meals. Sure it's easy for the celebrities to eat healthy, they have the funds to pay someone else to do it. Hell, they usually pay someone else to watch their children! I don't have the funds and it does take time. But the real myth buster? It's cheaper to eat at home. I have to go grocery shopping more often but I'm spending less. Why? Because I'm buying foods that are less processed too. Think about it...the more people (distribution), and the more processing (equipment), that touches your food, not only makes it more expensive, it takes the good bits out that your body needs. That's not to say that I don't eat anything processed. Otherwise, I couldn't have cottage cheese :). Here is today's lunch:
Strawberry and Cottage Cheese Salad
Approx 1 C Organic Baby Spring Mix (45g) cal 10
1/2 C Land O Lakes cottage cheese 113g cal 90
5-6 Strawberries 140g cal 45
2 Tbs Kraft Light Balsamic Vinaigrette (31g) cal 30
Spring mix in bottom of a nice size pasta bowl. Scoop cottage cheese in middle. Chop strawberries. Drizzle with dressing.
