My research into healthier eating continues! Inspired by Off Her Cork and her wonderful blog (good eats *and* martial arts — the perfect gateway drug!), I’m determined to change more than just my vegetarian status. I want to reduce my intake of processed foods, eat more raw and home-concocted meals, improve my intake of vitamins and minerals, and generally eat better tasting meals.
To get in the spirit of things, here’s what I had for dinner tonight:
|From Food and Drink|
- Fresh mozzarella (probably too much) drizzled with balsamic vinegar
- Tomatoes sprinkled with pepper
- Baby spinach (yum!)
- Pear (for dessert)
Believe it or not, this is one of the best meals I’ve eaten in ages. I loved every bite and felt full and happy when I was done. I have so much to learn about putting together well-rounded meals, but this is a really good step for me. I didn’t just come home and throw a frozen dinner in the microwave. In my book, that’s a huge victory!
Edit: Artistically, I wish I had put the mozzarella between the tomatoes and the spinach for better contrast. Let’s hope food arranging skills improve, too.
