We’ve been focusing on simple foods lately. Easy combinations with three or four ingredients, like blackened shrimp and flounder spaghetti or shrimp, asparagus and pesto pasta. I’ve enjoyed using frozen foods, as not much is in season. Something I missed having access to in Nicaragua. Our selection there consisted of chicken nuggets (20 different types), frozen chicken (that wouldn’t fit in our mini fridge or freezer) and french fries. Oh, and $13 a pint Haagan Daaz.
We make sure to grab a few fresh veggies each week. Usually one each of squash, zucchini and cucumber. Maybe a bunch of asparagus instead. I know they aren’t in season in Alabama, but Florida is close enough.
We’re following our natural cravings for lots of veggies. I think our bodies naturally push us to detox after the fatty holiday season. We’ve both dropped a few lbs by just watching our calorie intake and focusing on veggies and lean proteins.
How have your eating habits adjusted post holidays?
