The ever health conscious Joy Ann and I enjoy a hearty breakfast every morning. Joy Ann likes to point out “let food be your medicine and your medicine be food.” Joy Ann helps me understand good nutrition by reminding me that we should eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and supper like a pauper.
I go along with this because somewhere in my brain the agreement lamp is lit. However I am really more like an anaconda than a health food guy. Before I met the regimented Joy Ann I seldom ate before supper. No breakfast, no lunch, no snacks. Beer isn’t a snack… is it? Supper was consumed late in the evening. It was rich in sauces and high in fat and protein (think rib eye steak, baked potato with sour cream and salad with a cheesy dressing). I do some of my best sleeping with a full tummy.
Not anymore. Pursuant to my good health Joy Ann has strict rules regarding eating after 7 PM. Today our typical supper is a cup of soup and some crackers (non wheat crackers, of course). Cookies are no longer allowed at our home. In all fairness I deserve the cookie ban. I fell hard for Fresh Market’s half priced gourmet cookie sale. Before you could say ‘oatmeal raisin’ I was caught in their web.
The bright spot of my culinary day is lunch. Since my office is just next door to our home I prepare lunch for the two of us everyday. Long grain brown rice, organic sweet potatoes, boneless skinless tasteless chicken breast and assorted fresh vegetables are healthy choices for Joy Ann and still provide a platform for my favorite condiments of butter, soy and teriyaki sauce and a variety of cheeses. Cheese is a condiment isn’t it?
We still eat spaghetti and meatballs but now it is low glycemic index Dreamfield Pasta and organic marinara.
I have never been a fan of eggs or other typical breakfast fare. Through careful planning I have introduced left overs from lunch into my breakfast menu. It is not unusually for Joy Ann to quizzically observe my breakfast choice. She is often heard saying, “You’re having __________ for breakfast?” You can fill in the blank with spaghetti, pork chops or any number of other healthy choices.
