Running 20+ miles a week, and I can’t lose weight is a shame. I can’t really blame it on menopause since I’m really not there yet (I’m not even perimenopausal). So I’m finally admitting that it’s my diet. I eat way too much for my size, and I eat too much ‘bad’ stuff (e.g., one Costco chicken a week, free breakfast burrito at work). I’ve finally buckled down last week and vowed to eat less and healthier (fruits, vegetables, fish), which means I now have to cook.
For decades, my specialty had been instant noodles, rice (as long as I have a rice cooker I’m familiar with), and eggs. In the past week, under J’s tutelage, I’ve added one more dish to my repertoire…Costco pre-packaged fish. A dash of salt, pepper, and J’s barbeque dry rub, throw it on the skillet with some sliced mushrooms, and 10 minutes later…Voila! A tasty fish dish.
