Real Food

I'm always going to have the times I don't have the energy to
make "real food", so I have to get back in the habit of
preparing multiple meals at once.
Yesterday, we ducked out for a couple of things, and My son suggested we stop for fast food on the way home.

I thought about the options available, and realised something.  For days I'd just been grabbing whatever was quick and easy to eat, not worrying about what it was, and I felt awful for it.

My son, it must be said, could live for ever on two food groups, chips and tomato sauce.  I can only handle junk for so long before my body rebels.  "I just want to eat real food," I said.

I bought sliced meat and a bag of mixed salad vegetables - still pretty fast food, but something much better for me.

So, I've decided to get back into the habit of preparing extra serves whenever I make a meal. I need to make sure that what is quick and easy is actually food, not just junk.

I'm feeling a bit better today, although still a little "off".  I hope I've learned my lesson this time.  (But if you've been reading this blog a while, you know I keep re-learning it over again.)

So lovely lupies, give me some ideas: nutritious meals that don't take any effort to prepare; and nutritious meals that I can make up multiple serves of that will keep a couple of days in the fridge.  You know the deal: give me your comments on this post or on any of the social media choices.

PS, yes, I still do have things to tell you about that I found out on the Melbourne trip. Tomorrow, I'll get back to it and tell you about what's happening for World Lupus Day.

The novel I'm writing at the moment has everything: zombies, romance, a mad scientist and a sinister mystery.  Patrons of my writing will get an electronic version of the book, before it is released to market. You can become a patron of my writing; my books and blogs, for as little as $1 a month.  Just follow the link below.
