Food Funk

October 3, 2012

My posts have been all over the place recently with no talk of recipes or workouts, skin or anything “girly”, but I assure you that will change. Now that it’s Fall I plan on doing a lot more cooking, more sharing of my workouts and training for races I plan on signing up for, and beauty tips and tricks I find helpful and easy.

As far as food goes, my meals lately have kinda been eh. I started each morning with a piece of ezekiel bread and jam with coffee the past few weeks.

I had become so bored of having a boiled egg or peanut butter and couldn’t get motivated to make anything in the morning. Lunches and dinners weren’t the best either, but after our 7 mile run this past weekend I had a great turkey and ham sandwich with a plum that I devoured.

It made up for the other lunches I had earlier in the week, but made me realize I was definitely in a food funk. Sunday when I was making the weekly meal/shopping list I vowed to make homemade meals a priority to get out of the funk and look forward to meals rather than slapping things together.

With list in hand we went to the Farmer’s Market and got a TON of food to last the week full of meals I had planned and extra fruits and veggies for snacks. It ended up being a lot more food for way less than if I had not made a list beforehand.

A few of the meals that have come out of this pile are:

Sausage and Apple with Green Beans

Sauteed Brussel Sprouts, Peppers and Onions(great for wraps or as a side)

Breakfast Porridge with Peaches, Peanut Butter, and a touch of Brown Sugar

And a super yummy Red Lentil and Spinach soup that I haven’t taken a picture of to share, but will be making again to share in a post.

It’s so easy to get in a food funk but making meal plans and shopping lists are my favorite. I look forward to different meal ideas, searching online for recipes, and making a fool proof shopping list that will save me money because I planned ahead.

Do you find yourself in a food funk sometimes? Do you make meal plans the week ahead?

All your eats look delicious! I definitely find myself in a food funk sometimes… but Jesse is pretty adamant about making a list before we go to the store, so we usually have a set idea of what we’re going to be eating each week.
