I just finished shredding up a chicken breast for dinner tomorrow night. I’m working from 8am to 7 pm tomorrow, and I know darned well that if I don’t have something brain-dead simple that I would stop and pick something up on my way home at 7:30 or so. I mean, who is going to feel like cooking at that point?
But if all I have to do is heat up some chicken, slap it on a roll, and make a quick salad – that I will do. And I know that this dinner will leave me feeling better after I eat it. After a long day, I’m going to need nutrition.
And I don’t have to get out of my car or wait in any lines. I can go right to my calm, comfortable, clean home (that I love) and relax while watching the sunset.
Oh, and I’ll save money too.
Doesn’t that sound like a good plan?
All it took was about 15 minutes of extra effort tonight. I think the return on the investment is pretty darned good, don’t you?
If you don’t have quick and easy plan in your arsenal, you really need Rebel With a Fork.
I have to tell you, there have been a couple times over the last few weeks when I succombed to the fast food lure. I do have a weak spot for Popeye’s spicy with red beans and rice, and the biscuits are yummy. Totally not good for you…
The last time I went there, the place was swamped and it took me half an hour to pick up ‘fast’ food. It was a good thing though. I’ll be sure to have a plan in place so I don’t fall into that trap again. Well, except maybe for an occasional Tuesday when I can get the dinner for only $2.99. But with all the trans fats and GMOs, it won’t be very often. I love being thin and healthy far more than I love Popeye’s.
Anyway, I’d better get to bed. It’s going to be a very long Monday.
Have a great week, and eat well!
