Who hasn't contemplated old habits they could break and new habits they should start. I do it all the time. Today I was thinking about what I should have for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The thoughts of starting to eat healthier weighed heavily on my mind so I decided that it would be a bowl of cereal with a banana for breakfast; a spinach salad for lunch; and a chicken stir fry for dinner with broccoli, carrots, bell peppers and onions. It was easy to pick my menu because I really enjoy all three meals.
I had great resolve as I headed to the kitchen. I took out the cereal box and opened the fridge to get the milk. It was then that I noticed I had a container of homemade chili that I needed to use soon and a block of cheddar cheese that probably didn't have much shelf life remaining. Not wanting to be wasteful I changed the breakfast menu to a 3 egg chili-cheese omelet and a couple of slices of rye toast slathered in butter.
Adjusted menu should be a banana for lunch and the spinach salad for dinner. We'll see!
