Remember the success I had cooking from the 5 Ingredients—15 Minutes cookbook? Much of it is gone. (But, looking on the positive side, not all of it is gone. Meaning I haven’t gained back all the weight I’d lost earlier in the year.)
I haven’t been feeling very well lately, and I think much of it is due to my crappy diet. I decided to devote this weekend to improving my eating habits. This morning I sat down with the latest 5 Ingredients—15 Minutes volume, Summer 2009. My goal was to plan some meals for the next few weeks. I ended up identifying a slew of main dish recipes I’d like to make, and another slew of sandwiches, salads and soups; and even a couple beverages. I didn’t get all the recipes plugged into dates, as the whole thing became a bit overwhelming. But I found some key dishes to make this weekend. Then I was off to the grocery store where I purchased what may be an all time dollar-amount record of groceries. And I’ll be returning to the store later this week for more.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Man, eating well sure is expensive. But I think the rewards will be well worth the money.
