Eating healthy takes time, time most people don’t have. I really want to eat healthy. I even actually like the taste of healthy food. And like it or not I always feel better after a healthy meal. But finding the time to prep and eat healthy food is a challenge with kids. Ideally I would prepare food even cook it at night for the following days meals. But after the girls go to sleep and I clean the kitchen from the current nights meal it’s already late and my legs are tired from the day. So I’ll pass on the cooking and work in a small craft project while watching tv. And alas the vicious cycle of a hurried meal continues. I have dozens of cookbook filled with delicious recipes that take hours to shop for, prep, cook and clean up. Hours I hope to find one day so I can settle the unrest I feel about not being able to cook healthy balanced meals for my family.
This week I made myself one of my favorite healthy meals. A sweet salad with mixed greens, thinly sliced apple, Crumbled blue cheese and it was all inspired by chopped glazed pecans I found at Wal-Mart. They are really good.
Packed with protein and good for you fat. The bag says it hold four servings, so if I use less than a serving each time they are even better for me! I even got the 25% reduced fat blue cheese and I NEVER do reduced fat anything, but I can’t even taste a difference.
What’s your favorite five minute healthy meal?
