Blah and how to combat it


Blah - and how I have been trying to combat it
(without gaining weight)

It must be timing: the passing through dull, cold, boring Winter weather while we wait for Spring.

And Spring is springing, yet it doesn’t feel completely here. The flowers are pretty, the trees are leafy and lush, and the grass is growing, but the strawberries are hard and tasteless, the asparagus looks commercial, and overall, the market is uninspiring.

Food - good food - is a reward we give ourselves, especially when a day is too stressful, disrupted, or really bleak.

I personally have been struggling with what to cook these days – searching for something that tastes better than everyday fare, a step out of the norm, while at the same time keeping the calories (and my waistline) in check.
