Frankly, one my biggest problems is a reluctance to cook for myself. Oh yeah, and I hate shopping.
Whole Wheat Penne, Sun-dried tomatoes, pignole nuts, Broccoli.
Cook the Pasta.
Toss the garlic, pine nuts, broccoli and sun dried tomatoes in a wok with olive oil. Make sure you leave the broccoli al dente! Toss in the pasta, stir it up, and done.
Total time? Maybe 15 minutes or so.
This is not hard to eat, let me tell you :food

Did you eat the box too?
So much of people's issues/fears is not finding the good stuff. They're used to Ronzoni, or whatever, white flour pasta. Just wanted to show the options
Frankly, one my biggest problems is a reluctance to cook for myself. I'm a decent cook, I know my way around a kitchen, have worked in restaurants.
But cooking and cleaning-up dinner everyday is a massive amount of time, for 10 minutes of chew time. So guess which is my hands-down worst meal of the day?
Oh yeah, and I hate shopping.
Apparently, I'd rather have a vegetable on my sofa than on my dinner table.
I eat all day long and I'm never hungry.
#6 - Portion Control.
I would love to be better at portion control than I am. I'm pretty good on days I'm not working out but if the workouts get big I go postal and eat everything in the kitchen.
I'm not proud of it but at least if I go crazy on fruits, veggies, or legumes I don't put on the pounds even when making like a pig.
Yabutt...aren't you addressing your body's need for calories when you do workout?
Case in point: it's Thursday night, we do testing at SmugMug late into the wee hours. I'm now noshing on real peanut butter and some raisins.
Earlier in this thread the issue of water consumption came up.
I'd read before that consuming an exaggerated amount of water wasn't necessary. Today I again ran across an article that mentioned it.
It's in the second half of this story.
I'm curious about the counter-argument, which I assume is included in the books cited here.
..... Did you know the two most common blood tests done on people who show signs of Dementia are -- syphilis and Vitamin B12.
Ah! So Al Capone really died of a B12 deficiency.
I wondered about that. Non-fat yoghurt with pistachio nuts and a packet of Splenda is a favorite snack.
Protein powder & creatine...you dont put diesel in a ferrari.
In honor of this thread, we had dinner at a Vegetarian restaurant on Friday night.
In order, roasted butternut squash with vegetables in plum sauce, Empire chicken (soy meal, not real chicken) and portabello mushroom with sesame sweet sauce.
It were delicious. It were also proof that vegans can get fat: two of the three dishes were fried, and all were plenty sweet.
Anyway, vegetarian is a good first step, no?
I looked up plum sauce -- and it calls for sugar, brown sugar and corn syrup among other things. So plum sauce would be a "no-no" for vegans? Right?
Andrew has some kinda meals on wheels thing going on where they bring him a healthy dinner at night.
