Those of you who know me, Joel, know that there’s only two things that I love, and that’s the 16th level of the NES classic Bubble Bobble and eating healthy food no matter the expense (as long as it’s cheap).
Now, the Gf-Gf likes to make food and take leftovers to work and eat that. That would be great, except I eat my share of dinner during y’know, dinner.
I was in the habit of consuming fast food for lunch as it was cheap and easy. I recently discovered that the cafe at my work (it’s VERY nice) has a series of meals every day that are called “Your Health Your Way” which they sell for just $3.15 and are different every day. It hasn’t been easy to abandon my love of tacos and cheeseburgers in exchange for healthy food and I must admit I’ve faltered a few times when I REALLY want a taco, so what, you wanna fight about it?
I was halfway through this when I decided that I would document it for posterity. Aren’t you glad? If not, too bad! Look at it again!
What that is apparently was a piece of fish. Cod of Sole or something. On top is a potato crusting and a bit of horseradish in the mix with roasted carrot and spicy slaw on the side. It was quite delicious.
This was another meal from the past week. Oven fried chicken breast (super moist and delicious), steamed broccoli and a cauliflower mash with gravy. I’d never had cauliflower mash but it was delicious! It appears to be cauliflower… mashed! What a paradigm shift, I need a minute to think about it.
So, my ramblings do not contain the eloquence or inherent beauty of structure of Jennie’s, but you know what? I trust that you will all promptly get over it.
There is a point to all this. It’s that despite shortness of time or money or imagination or patience you can still eat delicious food that is good for you if you look for it. It’s sometimes in the places you would least expect.
In closing I submit for your consideration, the following self-portrait:
