How to Enjoy Eating Healthy
Sun ripened peaches. Glistening red cherry tomatoes. Crisp and colorful kale. Rainbow stemmed swiss chard. Bright orange fuzzy peaches.
This is what I’m thinking about while walking today. For some reason, I dream of fresh, healthy food when I’m on the move. This is a good thing! But, when I get home, I’m tired and the last thing I want to do is find a recipe and go to the store to buy the ingredients to make a healthy meal. Sadly, I end up with a bowl of yogurt and some raspberries (I love fruit, so I always make a point to buy some at the store.) But, I don’t come up with a genius concoction for dinner, so we go out or just grab whatever is in the fridge.
So, I decide, after hearing an ad on one of my podcasts, that I’d like to try Sunbasket. I had been trying to go Paleo for a long time and thought that this service would be perfect to do just that. So, I put in my first order. It was very easy and they remind you when absolutely everything is happening. Such a simple, no excuse way to eat healthy!
I have to say, I loved it! Although, it’s much harder than they say, because I can’t quite get things timed right… I’m a work in progress. The meals were excellent, for the most part. I even ate beef, which I never do, because that’s part of being paleo. But, I overcooked the steak, proving I shouldn’t stray too far from what I can stand. I have this aversion to blood when I cook and so I char it until it’s gone. My fiancé basically ate my steak like Chevy Chase ate the dry turkey in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. No exaggeration.
The cool thing about Sunbasket is that they actually teach you to cook. They put things together that I never would have thought of. And, I absolutely hate waste and you don’t have it because everything is measured perfectly. I did stray from the paleo option once and oh man was it good. I know I’ll continue with Sunbasket! If you suck at cooking, like I do, and want to eat fresh and healthy, it’s awesome!
