This bump has taken over my life already. Everything I eat and do revolves around this boxer in my belly.I take giant bags to work filled with organic, healthy food that I relentlessly devour throughout the day. Then, by the time I get home, I am STARVING again. Poor Dean has the option of cooking (ha!), ordering in (again!), or eating my mostly plant-based dinner. Never has the man eaten so much salad, spinach, kale, brussel sprouts, and a little more veg on the side. Where has his carnivore wanna-be-chef wife gone? Not to mention my hair. My hair has been horrible. (OK- this is a digression, I know, but I finally went for a highlight at an organic, no chemical salon in Tribeca. Cut was fab, color was a little red but SO much better).Anyway.. back to the FOOD. SO…. I don’t want to really cook, but I do want to eat healthy. And chicken makes me gag. Even writing that evil word… gag.
Enter: Blue Apron. You order 3 meals and they deliver local, healthy ingredients that can be made into a great meal in 30 minutes or less. I went with the vegetarian for two. Sorry, Dean. It arrived in a cooler box with little bags of the right portion size. No measuring cups, no wasted leftovers.
This week’s menu is:
|Kung Pao Tofu with Chinese Broccoli & Brown Rice||Quinoa with Baby Squashes, Basil & French Feta Cheese||Spring Minestrone with Fresh Fava Beans & Asparagus|
Will report back in my adventures of eating for two with aversions for ten. Up tonight (recipe and ingredients included):
