Eat Fresh, Day 2: Enough with the Evening Snacks
Who: Angela, test kitchen manager.
This year, I’m determined to: eat dinner on weeknights and not graze my way through the late evening.
I chose this because: I want to end my day on a healthy balanced note.
My biggest obstacle: is lack of interest in dinner at home after a day of “tasting” all the great food being tested and developed in the Sunset test kitchen.
My biggest temptation to cheat: settling in with a good book or mindless television and suddenly realizing I am hungry … right now. Urgency rarely leads to wise food choices.
Coping mechanism(s): I make my favorite Sunset soup recipes and freeze them in single servings. When it’s just me I quickly heat up one portion and when my husband is home it’s just as easy to heat up two or three.
I’m feelin’: ready!
A recipe I’m really digging: Sunset’s Curried Roasted Squash Soup. This soup is delicious with any winter squash and stands up to freezing.
