Have you ever come home from a crazy day at work and although you have a weekly meal plan and know what you should be cooking for dinner, you just don’t have it in you to turn on the stove?
I have gotten into this rut at work where by the time I get home I am so tired and frustrated, I cannot be bothered. It is hard to stay healthy in a rut like that! It takes the rest of my energy to not order a pizza!
I know everyone gets into these ruts! So I thought I would share a little secret with you….munchie dinners 😁
Takes little energy, you don’t have to turn on the stove and you can make it whatever you want it to be (or feel like that night). It gives you the illusion you are cheating and eating what you shouldn’t because it is so satisfying, yet as long as you keep fresh healthy snacks in the house, it is a perfectly acceptable dinner! We all get the munchies now and then, minus we’ll find a way to feed the craving!
The other night I made a big plate of red and green peppers, olives, mozzarella, pepperoni, pickles, rice crackers and broccoli. It was so perfect (and relatively healthy) that it put me back in a good mood!
