Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Lucky for me, maybe not! It turns out that by me skipping breakfast and not eating after 8 pm, I am doing what is called intermittent fasting which apparently is very healthy for you!
“Studies show that intermittent fasting can: Stabilize blood sugar levels, increase resistance to stress, and suppress inflammation. Decrease blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and improve resting heart rate, brain health and memory.” WebMd, December 2019. So now, I don’t feel so bad about not eating breakfast after all!
Anyway, today was one of those days where I just was not in the mood to cook. It’s rare but it does happen! For lunch I warmed up a cup of my veggies soup and made this incredible salad with oil and vinegar dressing.
Snack time was taste-testing a healthy layered Mediterranean Dip for the cooking segment I’m doing Monday for one of our local tv stations. It was sooo good and will be perfect to have while watching the national championship on Monday night. Go LSU! Stay tuned for the recipe later this weekend
Remember those days when all you really wanted to do was come home, relax and order a pizza? Are those days over because you are on a primary plant-based diet? Not even close! Jeff and I ordered from Mellow Mushroom pizza and who knew that a healthy pizza could be so good! We got an artichoke, tomato, black olive, and mozzarella on whole wheat gluten-free crust, It was a winner!
Bottom Line: There wasn’t much happening in the kitchen today but that just goes to show you that you don’t have to cook all the time to eat healthy. Tomorrow, I will be back in the kitchen for an amazing salmon recipe!
