I’m all about quick and easy these days. You would think that in my transition to working from home I would be spending hours in the kitchen, but it’s actually quite the opposite. Now more than ever when I open my fridge, I’m looking for things I can throw together for a healthy and delicious meal.
Pizza is one of my absolute favorite meals of all time. But making it gluten-free can be tough. Well not difficult per se, it’s actually quite easy, but it’s time intensive. You’ve got to whip up a crust, let it rise, bake it, add you toppings, bake it again and then finally, after an hour of waiting, you can enjoy a slice of deliciousness.
And I just don’t have that kind of time during the day or even some weeknights.
I started this year off with a vow to make healthier choices. I chose to steer clear of dessert, forgo that glass of wine that I usually have with dinner, drink lots and lots of water, take more vitamins, and exercise.
I did a really great job, for about a week. Then life got in the way. Turns out we’re moving – we’ve been swept up in a whirlwind of packing, apartment hunting and driving between New York and Vermont. Somewhere along the way, many of the intentions I set for 2013 have gone by the wayside. And I’m kicking myself for it.
But eating healthy is something I’m committed to. Having balanced meals is a priority for me. A choice I refuse to give up regardless of what life throws at me.
