Tuna Melts

I remember how it was .. when I started taking baby steps along my path to healthier eating ..

I didn't have a clue how to do it ..

and felt really awkward admitting it out loud.

Tuna Melts - When I started taking baby steps along my path to healthier eating. I didn't have a clue how to do it & felt awkward admitting it out loud.

I felt like everybody belonged to a secret club that I had no idea how to join.

I'd hear them say things like:

“Yeah .. last night I got home from work & was really tired. So I pulled this protein from the fridge, mixed it with these veggies, added a few other tasty things to go along with .. and in less than 20 minutes my family was eating a healthy dinner.”

“I went to the grocery this week .. bought everything we needed .. came home did the prep .. and now I don't have to worry about it all for the rest of the week.”

What? Really?

I'm 40 (ish) .. I'm smart .. I read books & work & generally do smart-people things .. and I can't get this down?

Please ..

So you know what I did?

I just started ..

I started asking a few people around me .. like my Mother .. like a few of the women I admire at exercise class .. who I know feed their bodies well, and have for many years.

“In your everyday .. what do you eat?”

At first it sounded strange .. and people looked at me a bit like .. “Huh?”

But as I started to build a small database of information .. written with ink in my notebook .. it all became so interesting to me that I quit caring about how the question sounded.

So I did what they did .. ate from the list of choices I'd compiled .. and pretty soon my confidence started to grow. When I went to the grocery I started to have ideas for fridge and pantry staples that I could have on hand for meals when the day begged quick & easy.

Don't get me wrong .. I'm nowhere near utopia as far as this whole thing goes .. But I do believe I'm getting better

And sometimes .. that's about the best you can say.

So tonight .. when the day was busy .. and time to cook was short .. I pulled together tuna melts .. along with a bag of Trader Joe's veggies from the freezer .. 20 minutes later dinner was served.

She can be taught

Enjoy!

    I’ve been trying to eat more heathier, especially since I have gotten older. I never thought to ask others about what they eat. That was a very smart move , I’m sure their choices of food help build a great data base. That tuna melt really look good.
