I was hungry today! Tried a different packed lunch. Normally I use cooked rice or mashed taters or nuked taters as my starch, topped with loads of frozen veggies. I tried just using frozen shoestring hash browns instead. It was tasty enough but wasn't very filling.
Had a huuuuuge pile of veggies and mashed taters for dinner. I finally have capers again (ran out early this week, just got more tonight). I love those little sour salty flavor nuggets!
Last night I had a meal cooked by a friend's mom. She made pasta since she knows I'm vegetarian. She also made a side of veggies-- green beans and mushrooms. The amount she cooked for four of us was about half of a normal veggie portion for me. It also had oil on it. It's such a shame to take such a nutritious low-cal food and add a substance that adds zero flavor or nutrients and multiplies the calories by what, like 5 times? It struck me, veggies like that are really sort of a little token side dish that gives you the illusion your meal is healthy.
I'm proud to realize that I've really become a volume veggie eater
I wish more people could learn the joy of consuming huuuuge quantities of oil-free veggies! Kinda funny coming from me since I hardly ate or prepared veggies at all most of my adult life.
