This week I realized that I have been being a little silly, or stupid… whichever way you want to put it. For some reason I just haven't been able to wrap my head around this whole diet thing. Not that I want it to be a diet, but more of a healthy eating more often lifestyle change. But I have been eating things that I never eat, or that I very RARELY eat, buy or even cook.. just an abundance of junk daily, all day long. And, I have been craving junk… and blah blah blah.
Anyway. what I realized this week is that I am being a victim of MYSELF. Making poor choices because of laziness, or feeling like I deserve it or otherwise. Like I have no choice but to eat everything my body craves.
This, my dears, is just ridiculous. Isn't part of the journey of life learning to control yourself? (a concept I don't think everyone understands)?
This concept involves all aspects of our lives. It is not safe or good to indulge foolishly in a number of things, just because we have a natural tendency for them, be it sex, drugs, laziness… whatever your crutch may be. We will become better people as a whole if we learn to take the reigns of our own physical base urges (yes that includes eating a whole 1/2 gallon of ice cream) and use those urges properly… Okay, don't get me going, I could talk about this for days.
The point is, that I can either choose to be a victim (of myself and my choices) or I can step up. So, I am going to try to step up. And this little recipe was an easy step, people, and totally delicious!! Tyr it, if you like tuna sandwiches you won't be disappointed!
I got the original idea from The Kitchn and went from there (the image via the kitchn)
Shred the tuna with a fork and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Taste and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over a good whole wheat bread. Eat immediately or refrigerate for up to two days.
