i know i’m a lil’ late in new year resolutions…but then again i’m not quite a new-year-resolutions kinda person…i make resolutions along the way, as and when, when i need to change something, or need to do something new. i’ve learnt to make simple, achieveable resolutions…it just happened that i made 2 at the beginning of 2013…the 1st is to cook more meals at home, especially lunch for myself, at least mon to fri. last year when the kid started school in april, i ate lunch very sloppily. the kid eats lunch in school. i either eat an early lunch around 11-1130am (before i pick the kid up) or a late lunch around 2+pm (after i fetch the kid, shower him & prepare his snacks), mostly by myself. so that explains the sloppiness in me lunches. sometimes i ate tidbits/snacks (like wolving down OCK curry puffs, fishballs, or crackers, etc). few occasions i actually succumbed to the very convenient cup noodles!! or i ate out or bought back hawkerfare which you know how healthy those can be. so i made a mental note that i shall be sloppy no more & resume my healthy eating habits. i have to say i’m pretty proud of myself wrt this resolution thus far, i can safely report 3 or 4 out of 5 weekdays, i eat in and i eat healthy, and i eat homemade 😀
wholemeal wrap with baked salmon, roasted pumpkin & baby spinach. i love wraps, and i love this combi. salmon so easy, so quick, so convenient to make. so were the roasted pumpkin. and i love baby spinach with salmon. slurped!
for one weekend dinner, i strolled around the supermarket not quite sure what to cook for dinner and discovered pork sirloin. bought them home, grilled on hcp, made mushroom & prune sauce to pour over, accompanied by baked potatoes, steamed carrots and creamy mushroom soup with shredded zucchini. O it was a very fulfilling and happy dinner. a new menu i’m so happy with! (especially a creation born outta desperation not knowing what to cook)
homemade meals, healthier bodies, a happier me ;D
