My entree was two pieces of salmon wrapped in rice paper with a side salad. This is where I mixed things up. The old Ellen would never have gone this route, but I'm glad I broke my stale routine. It made the meal more exciting and enjoyable, and lord knows I need a little variety in my life when it comes to food.
After all this, I'm still thinking about getting my usual turkey sub for lunch (Subway's $5 footlong is just so economical because it can be split for two meals). I know people say that eating healthfully doesn't have to be expensive, but those people are damn liars. All of the health/food blogs I read feature meals that have at least eight different components in them. I can hardly afford milk and eggs these days, so sprinkling coconut, brown sugar, almonds and fruit on top of my oatmeal is just not realistic. Liars I tell you.
So tell me: Do you eat the same things over and over like I do? Or do you mix it up?
