Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

Indiviual componets:
Vegies - A.
Rice - A-mazing! We will talk more about this below.
Sauce - Nope, this one is - while not bad - not really anything!
Overall meal:
Another perfectly cooked meal - and, as promised, I am going to go ahead and declare that you can just go ahead a bet on a well cooked lunch if you go with this line and set the microwave for the right amount of time. This sauce is a very weak (to the point of almost not being there) version of the previous Mediterranean meals sauce. (BTW - when I realized I did these on back to back days I saw my own lack of a smart choice.) I am a bit of a blander side of things person (cooking, this only applies to cooking) and if I notice something is a bit flat it is probably VERY flat for a person who really enjoys FLAVOR that punches the tongue. So, for me where I could maybe see a fail with the sauce there is a HUGE, RIDONKULOUS PASS with the rice. A PASS that makes me think all of these could be winners on some level. Ready? Rice. I love rice - I HATE REWARMED rice. I don't like it warmed later in the day, or fridge and then warmed and I can not stand frozen rice! So, now that you know that you can imagine the disdain that I approached this meal with (take whatever you imagined just now and times it by ten, still probably not enough!) This rice was - PERFECTLY cooked. It was as if I cooked it myself on the stove. Fluffy, soft with a bit of substance! I am about to say I love HC and their Cafe Steamers!
