Starving???? Then get what you need.

This new life as a fit and healthy person sometimes takes me by surprise.

The other day, I found myself truly, deeply, out of my mind hungry. The type of hungry that in the olden days would have seen a binge close on the horizon.

But without having to fight, I just nutted out what I needed. What I was actually hungry for. There was a clear need for red meat, a hankering for spice but overall the ‘need’ I was feeling most was for volume (I wanted to eat a large helping) and especially for comfort food.

So in about three minutes, I devised and cooked this:

So easy, delicious, nutritious and exactly what I needed. Now, I could have eaten something else or what was planned out for my night but it wouldn’t have filled this need. Learning to cater to my body’s needs while still making great decisions is a big step – and I love that it becoming second nature to me now.

But what’s in the bowl??

Sailor Vee’s Ginger Soy Skippy

100 grams kangaroo fillet – finely sliced
1/2 a red onion – finely diced
1/4 red capsicum – diced
1 cup fresh baby spinach
1 packet slim pasta – prepared as packet
1tsp dried ginger
1Tsp crushed ginger
2Tbsp salt reduced soy sauce

In a frying pan, fry the garlic and ginger until fragrant. Add the onion, capsicum and then kangaroo and cook till cooked through.

Add in the noodles and spinach toss well as spinach wilts.

Add in the soy sauce and continue mixing through.

Pour into a massive bowl and enjoy!

Nom Nom,

Sailor Vee

  1. Mmmm that looks so good. I have been craving comfort food a lot lately too! I just mentioned something similar to what you said about controlling your eating. I love my fitness journey and how exercising has made me so much happier!

  2. When I was overweight I was never hungry. I didn’t stop eating long enough to feel hungry. It’s lovely to eat a meal that hits the spot because there is a spot to hit isn’t it. :)

    • Completely agree. I was never really hungry but on the odd occasion I was I would just DROWN the sensation in food rather than eating until I was satisfied. Learning balance is pretty awesome :)
