My favorite cold weather lunch is…
… soup! But not just any soup. This spicy soup is packed with vegetables. And lunch–(or breakfast as is often the case)–is as simple as putting one serving full of the delicious home made soup into a frying pan, heating until it is hot, cracking two eggs on top, seasoning with a bit more salt and pepper, and then covering with a tight fitting lid, turning the heat down to medium low, and letting the eggs poach for 2-3 minutes on top of the flavorful soup. And if I’m feeling decadent I add a sprinkling of cheese before I slide it all into my bowl.
This is comfort food at it’s best: Delicious, easy, satisfying, nutritious, and completely in alignment with my health and weight goals. Nothing begs for comfort food more than cold dark days! Mmm…soup is a great cold weather lunch!
The difference between keeping to a healthy diet and falling down the slippery slope of ‘whatever/whenever’ is just a matter of planning and liking what you are planning. If you like your own home-made food more than eating out, getting ready-to-go meals, or eating junk at home, you will do it! If not…then if you are like a lot of people you will feel bad/ashamed, lower your standards, and stop caring. Make your own version of your ideal cold weather lunch that will keep you on the right track!
See how you can have it for lunch or dinner with variations.
