NaBloPoMo – Day 13

Posted by Sowmya on May 13, 2014

How often do you eat foods that you know are bad for your body?

That’s a tough one. The truthful answer would be ‘often’. ‘Why’ you ask me? Mostly laziness. I find it very hard on somedays to cook lunch just for myself. It is a very boring exercise. So then, sometimes, I do order out or eat stuff that are high on carbs or fat and low on nutrition. Wrong decision! I know that! But on a hot and sultry day, the thought of going to the kitchen and cooking for just me and no one to actually tell me, ‘Its so yummy’, I slip and give up and reach for the phone.
What I do to avoid this scenario is to cook additional quantity during dinner and have it for lunch the next day. That meets with my laziness as well as nutritious criteria. I am trying to do that more and more. Hopefully I should succeed and soon not fall prey to the laziness and eat stuff that are not good for me. 
On a nicer note, my dinner today is as healthy as healthy can be. Ok, slight cheating allowed. I had spinach soup, vegetable salad and bread, all of which were made by me. Yummy!!!

NaBloPoMo -Day 2

Posted by Sowmya on May 2, 2014

Tell us how you wish you ate if it’s different from your day-to-day reality.

I do have a wonderful plan of how I should eat everyday. But that is yet to get real.

I would like to eat healthy which means ‘breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper’. My breakfast should be elaborate and varied, not to mention tasty. I would like 2-3 types of bread, some fruits, orange juice, butter, cheese, or marmalade. On other days, I would like bread and omelette, coffee and fruits. Maybe some aloo paratha with curds.

Lunch should be a soup, salad or raita, roti, vegetable, dal and curds. It could also be a good nutritious sandwich which has 2-3 layers of vegetables, chutney and cheese or paneer. It should be toasted or grilled to perfection.

Dinner should be just a soup and curds with some sprouts or salad. Light dinner followed by a glass of milk mixed with turmeric for a good night’s sleep.

All this food talk is making me sooo hungry. I just had dinner and so these thoughts should not enter my mind at all.

God! I could do with a sandwich 🙂
