And here we are again: the midway point of yet another packed week. No complaints, though—I’ll totally take it over this time last year, if we’re going to play that game.
I don’t know what it is, but after being in a months-long food rut, I’ve finally been trying a lot of new things recently. About damn time. I’d almost forgotten how much I like playing around with different ingredients sometimes. I was worried I was going to revert back to my college-days habit of keeping pots and pans in my oven because I never, ever used it .
On Monday, for example, I tried using non-fat ricotta in my oatmeal (part-skim would have been even better, but Trader Joe’s only had fat-free) and later used sardines with tahini & sautéed veggies for a sandwich.
Finding a boneless, skinless variety helped me get over my fear of eating little fish-bones. I’m so glad I finally gave it a shot—freaking delicious. Nutritious too. I think this is one of my new favorite ways to get my omega-3s.
Here’s what else was on the menu for Monday…
Snack: Yogurt w/ cereal (unpictured)
