Its been at least a few months since I posted on this blog. Turns out eating healthy and conveniently takes a little work and effort. Is it hard? I wouldn’t say it’s hard. Nonethless, there is a slight learning curve.
Being healthy is a journey, a lifestyle, a commitment. Every journey starts with that first step, or multiple first steps, as in my case.
So to kick of the party, I decided to boil a cup of barley for 45 minutes. Once the barley was cooked, I took a jar and filled it with 1/2 cup barley and 1/2 cup vegetables. I added some balsamic vinaigrette dressing for taste.
In one example, I had the barley, mixed-greens salad with raw mushrooms. In the other, i had the barley with a mixed-greens and tomatoes.
So far, I’ve had a very filling lunch and snacked a few times. I still have one full jar and a little of the other. By my estimates, there’s 3-4 lunches in two jars, if you’re a 180 pound man who eats like a horse to be strong like a horse (I eat a lot).
Super simple, you can literally make a few jars for the week and always have a delicious meal ready to go.by
