Spaghetti, Chicken or Fish. That's it. Over and over again.
But, of late, I have found myself getting tired of it. Not the taste, I don't really care much about that. Food is fuel. I don't eat for pleasure. That went out of the window a long time ago.
Rather, I'm just not finding the meals as filling anymore. So it's time to reinvent the menu. What are the new additions?
I am always looking for something nutritious to prepare, that I know is going to be very filling. Which has led me to look at beans and also brown rice. The past few weeks I have tried pinto beans, black beans, kidney beans and great northern beans.
The results have been good. Beans are extremely filling. A couple of servings of them and I feel like I've swallowed a huge rock. So I added kidney beans to my spaghetti. Had black beans and rice for dinner one night.
It is amazing how that works. What once used to fill me up and really do it for me...no longer does. Time to mix things up!
