Do you ever look into your fridge and get overwhelmed by the delicious possibilities? I do. Often. It's great to have options so your not caught ordering crappy takeout or deciding to have tortilla chips & salsa for dinner to get your head out of the fridge (yea, that happens to me too). On the other hand, it leaves me indecisive and sometimes unsatisfied. Or the real downside, I have so many options that food wastes away as one person can only eat so much each day. Does this happen to anyone else??

Take this morning for example. I have a massive container of spinach in the fridge. Along with delicious blueberries that i'd like to eat. Smoothie? Pancakes (minus the spinach of course)? Omelet? Oatmeal? Or do I eat leftovers from dinner (because they were so good I would eat them for breakfast)? Do you see my dilemma?

Instead of dirtying two or three pans (cause why only use 1?) I stuck with simple...

Corn flakes, blueberries, banana, almond milk, cinnamon. Simple. Delicious. Nutritious (Attention vegans: Corn flakes have b12!!).

I can't be the only person who has had this happen to them, can I?

What are some of your strategies to prevent feeling overwhelmed at meal time?


  1. Jen,

    That definitely happens to me as well! The funny thing is that I get used to having so many choices that yesterday, when our fridge was getting bare, I thought wait a second I only have one or two choices, what's wrong here??

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)

  2. @Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food Glad to know i'm not alone! I think I need to take stock in what I have, maybe that will make it easier?

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend too, Jenny!
