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??
