So, normally, Trying Tuesday would be all about art. However, I, having temporarily re-discovered a game from my childhood, am in no mood to try new art. But there is something I’m trying.
Don’t laugh. Bran cereal. Here’s the thing. I’m trying to have an efficient diet. I want to eat foods that are a good bang for my buck. I know I need more fiber, and there were so many promising nutrients. I’ve been eating chia seeds for the same reason (really good when soaked in orange juice).
I got started on this kick because of instant oatmeal. I mean, oatmeal is supposed to be good for you. High in fiber, bla bla bla. Legit oatmeal is. But instant? It’s so many calories for feeling ZERO percent full. So disappointed. I don’t really track my calories, but that’s mostly because I’m lazy. I want to be healthy without having to think about it. Also, I want to be healthy without a lot of work. And also, I want to be healthy without eating miserably gross food. I’m looking at you kale salad with cranberries and cayenne pepper and walnuts and olive oil and apple cider vinegar and honey. Gross and too much work and not filling. Also, fruit should NEVER go in a savory salad. I have opinions.
So this bran cereal. It looks like dog food or cat food or something. But it tastes fine. Totally tolerable (and you’re talking to someone who has been subjected to liquid thyme being just dropped into her mouth, I KNOW intolerable). The word isn’t in on how good that fiber is, but I’m sure I’ll find out in the most inconvenient way at work during a meeting tomorrow.
So far though, it seems like a good idea.
