It's the beginning of a new year, and a new decade, and I want to gently make some changes. As I mentioned before, I'm not especially good with resolutions, but being inspired by a fresh start, that sounds good to me. So here is one of the things that I'm going to be working on. I want to get back to the basics, more often, with regard to eating. I want to treat myself to simple, delicious, nutritious, unfussy foods. I'm talkin' radical, sexy, food like grains, beans, veggies, and fruit. I want to dust off the pressure cooker and cook big pots of beans and grains, and pre-chop vegetables so that this good food becomes the convenience food. I can do this, not at the last minute when I'm hungry, but with some planning, I can do this.
I've been reading The Kind Diet, and I must say, I am inspired to eat more like a Superhero. I like the way the book takes you wherever you are at, and encourages you to just gradually do a little better. She calls it flirting, which makes it sound like fun. So I'm going to flirt with being more prepared with the foods I want to enjoy more often. How about you, would you like to flirt with any changes in your food choices?
