Low effort food is OK!

In fact, I’d say it’s pretty great!

I have a job that has been beating the crap out of me lately, and it doesn’t leave much energy for well, anything.

But – ya gotta eat!

Pre-sliced cheese, aka “cracker cuts” – awesome and fit perfectly on a Triscuit! Good source of calcium and protein, and ready in moments. Grab a package of sliced salami and you’ve got yourself a charcuterie board! Cheese and Triscuits are one of my go-to’s when I’m at that “oof, I should eat” point.

Raw veggies and your favorite dip! It’s OK to get a ready to go veggie tray, especially if you’re like me and know you’ll never get around to actually cutting up full sized vegetables. And, the dip doesn’t take away any of the benefits of those veggies and if that dip makes you eat more veggies, then it’s worth it.

Frozen chicken patties. I really like these, cause in just a minute or two, I’ve got hot protein. I don’t even make sandwiches of them, just cut ’em up and have some BBQ sauce and/or mustard for dipping. And there are tons of variations on the theme out there – nuggets, strips, tenders and whatnot. All quick, tasty, and reasonably good for you.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with low effort food and don’t let anyone make you feel bad about it.
