After a busy day at the office, followed by a good workout at the gym, I always find myself to be absolutely famished, usually exhausted and lacking the patience and creativity to plan and make a healthy dinner.
Some might even call me “Hangry”.
So, what happens?
My husband and I end up getting take-out on the way home and I spend the evening feeling guilty for spending too much money and calories on dinner.
Starting last week, I began trying to create a new habit and spend time on a less hectic evening or on the weekend to make healthy meals in advance that can be heated up and served quickly.
Armed with my new cookbook, Fresh & Healthy Cooking for Two: Easy Meals for Everyday Life: I’ve been making up batches of healthy soup that include a new star in our kitchen, Kale.
Before I move on to my kale adventures, I have to say that this cookbook is a great addition to my library. I have made a number of recipes from this book in the 3 weeks since I purchased it. I love that each recipe is well balanced and includes the nutritional information, making it easy to track what I am eating.
