I love reading food blogs, gleaning other people's best recipes and tricks for the kitchen. And for some reason the Food Network is the choice channel for the salons I go to to get pedicures (maybe they teach that in beauty school? You know, Relaxing Cable Channels 101) and of course T loves watching Man v Food. But sometime I wonder what is so darn interesting with what other people are eating?
I don't really know, but I do know that the most helpful food posts I have read lately have come from other new moms. What the heck can you throw together either with one hand or in a small window of time, while doing laundry and other things? You know, besides a handful of goldfish and a glass of water. Actually, looking back I should have been reading those posts pre-baby because eating healthy when I have limited time has always been a challenge.
Anyhow, summer is here and so I have thrown one of my favorite, quick salads into the mix. I can toss it together quickly, eat it while I am checking e-mails and it gives me good energy for the day.
Here's the ingredients:
Finely chopped fresh basil
Fresh ground pepper
Add if I need the protein I add Sunflower Seeds
Basically I throw all of it in a bowl and toss it lightly with the EVO and BV. Easy, simple, yummy and fresh.
Other new moms or women on the go--what is your go-to meal of choice lately?
