I don’t do well with calorie counting. I found low-carb to be weird, when having to put some miles on the bike. Giving up beer hurts.
I needed something different. I cooked dinner tonight. I used what we already had in the house:
- 2 cups white rice
- 3 cups water
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup beer (Dale’s Pale Ale, if it matters)
- 1 can black-eyed peas
- 1 can mushrooms
- 1 bag frozen spinach
- Hot sauce
- Garlic (copious amounts)
I had planned on something fancier, but I didn’t want another grocery trip. This is pretty good, and mostly healthy. The beer I drank… not so much.
There are plenty of leftovers for later.
My longer term plans are to eat meat-lite. Diane isn’t totally on board with this. I guess I’ll be doing a lot more cooking.
I rode the new bike to work today. I’m going to again tomorrow.
