For awhile I was really unmotivated to cook. All I wanted was something quick to heat up in the microwave, or to order something from Doordash. Anything quick and easy that took no effort.
I think a lot of my lack of motivation was due to constantly being home and not leaving the house for the last 6 months. I lost a lot of interest in my own hobbies, too. 10lbs later, now I’m trying to eat healthier and get back in shape (while still rarely leaving the house). Here’s what I’ve been eating lately.
I know this doesn’t sound exciting, but I’ve been eating this for breakfast or lunch every day lately. This is one apple and one banana with a peanut butter “dressing”. I like to add granola and cinnamon on top too. Here’s how I make it:
- 1 apple
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
This is the granola we’ve been using. We found it at Target:
First, I dice up the banana and apple, and add it to a bowl. Then, I mix together the tablespoon of peanut butter and a splash of water to thin it out. I also add some cinnamon to the “dressing”. Then I just mix that in with the fruit, top it with the granola or whatever else you would like to add, and add some more cinnamon on top! This has been such a treat to have, especially for breakfast before work.
Air Fried Tofu Wraps
I air fry a lot of tofu when I’m trying to eat healthier. For lunch a few days ago I had some leftover tofu that I wrapped in tortillas with spinach, carrots, and dried cranberries. For a sauce I mixed together 2 tbsp of Sabra’s classic hummus and a packet of Taco Bell’s Diablo hot sauce (very fancy, I know).
To cook the tofu, cut it into cubes and mix it with cumin, paprika, black pepper, nutritional yeast, garlic powder, and onion powder. Make sure the tofu is evenly coated with the spices. I cook it in the air fryer at 400° for 20 minutes, flipping it halfway through.
And… more air fried tofu
I just really like air frying tofu…
This is 1/4 of a block of tofu, cubed and air fried like in the last meal. I had it with spinach, white rice, and sriracha. For the spinach, we had frozen spinach that I sautéed in a pan with garlic and crushed red pepper. Really simple, but healthy, filling, and easy to make.
