Most of the meals we’ve had here have been homemade at our apartmemt. It’s financially smarter between the two of us and also beneficial to our health. (that sounded way more serious than I meant it). Also, when we DO eat out at a local place, it increases the appreciation for flavor, variety and the whole no cooking or dishes part.
Here is an unplanned “creative” meal we through together.
In the fridge we had an egg, a cup of lentils and some veggies. Excellent…. An omlette with lentils on the side, next to some raw veggies.
Even though the yolk is where the cholesterol and fat is, it’s also the home of many nutrients that are good for the body. I wouldn’t necessarily have them every day or multiple at a time, but once in awhile is ok. Sometimes if I’m making 2 eggs, I’ll just use one yolk and two whites. This meal was a whole egg because there wasn’t a significant amount of fat in any of the other sides and we were out of avacodo and nuts (or that would of been a tasty garnish).
