Sometimes even I get irritated by my love of routine.
I have a nasty habit of ruining perfectly good food. By ruining, I mean eating it so many times in a row that I reach a point where I never ever want to see it again.
Case in point: last year sometime I changed some dietary things to help me shed the last 10 baby pounds that seemed to make themselves at home on my body. So for breakfast I starting having smoothies: 1 cup of frozen fruit, one big dollop of greek yogurt, a squirt of honey, 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed and 2 Tbsp of chocolate Instant Carnation Breakfast. I felt so healthy, and it really seemed to help. I also began eating a salad with some kind of chicken on top every day for lunch. Last year I was able to lose 12 pounds. And now I am SO OVER IT.
So I found this recipe for a scrambled egg in the mug and a two-minute breakfast sandwich. It's glorious and FAST. I can make it three and half minutes total and have a real filling breakfast. But I just know I'll probably ruin this too. The question is, how many will I eat before I never want to eat it again?
Spice things up, you say? Variety is the spice of life, eh? Maybe. Probably. Too late. I'm already stuck in my rut.
