Eating healthy…

I feel like this looks like one of Martha Stewart’s disgusting food tweets but I swear it was good!

Today, I came home from work and was exhausted. During a lapse of judgment, as I was exiting the metro, I texted Feraz that I was going to have something delicious ready when he got home. After walking home in the freezing cold, I just wanted to crawl under a big pile of blankets. Normally I would just have ordered a pizza and we both would have been happy but I really want us to be putting good food into our bodies. With this thought pushing me, I told myself that I would just quickly prep a couple of fish and call it a day.

Once I got started in the kitchen, I figured that since I was already cooking, I may as well make a couple of things. Once the cutting board and veggies are out, adding more dishes is a no brainer. I ended up with daal, veggie palou, tilapia stir fry and baked sweet potato fries. All in less than an hour!

Feraz gave it a 10/10 and if you are familiar with his rating system, that is a hard earned mark!

The moral of the story? A small choice stands between eating healthier or succumbing to the same old bad habits. Sometimes just getting yourself pointed in the right direction is the hardest part. 

Road Tripping – 24 Hour NYE Edition

Getting his Rocky on.

Last week, in a haze of boredom and stir craziness, we decided very last minute to go to Philly to ring in the new year. It ended up being a great trip and just the type of adventurous spirit that I wanted to start 2014 on! Here’s to another great year with my favorite saathi.

Feraz got pulled on stage in a contest where the comedians had to grab someone in the audience that most looked like them. She quickly found a scarf and hat and voila- twins! They won, of course.
Starting off the year with a little Rodin.
