These are My Confessions…
Ginger salmon, baked at 400 degrees for 20 minutes with salt & pepper to taste. Sauteed spinach, yellow peppers, brown rice.
Don’t judge me, but I started buying the microwaveable rice packets. I know, I know. For shame. What real foodie would do that? Well, one who has a 40-hour a week job...
These instant packets only take 90 seconds to cook, so how can I resist when my other option is measuring, boiling, waiting (while starving), and fluffing with a fork? Who has the time and patience? Not I.
(Unless it’s the weekend, of course, when I’m not working, and I can do all of the above happily while drinking a
half bottle glass of cabernet.)
Plus this instant rice is brown and whole grain, so I think in the grand scheme of things, and by that I mean according to Michelle Obama’s Food Plate, my choice here is nutritionally considered “ok.”
Call it cutting corners, it gets the job done. I just felt the need to justify my decision here to you. Good talk.
