Mondays, Mondays, Mondays – whether you like it or not, they’re a bit of a work-fail even if you’ve got that to do list in front of you.
It’s difficult to light your ass on fire when all you want to do with said ass is crawl back into bed.
And apart from being generally demotivated, I feel like I’m moving through Jello. Tasks that take me 5 minutes on a Tuesday are taking me 10, today.
Like, for example, it’s just REALLY hard to write an email sometimes, ok?
But what can you do? Mondays are slow starters and we have the rest of the week to kick-ass, including our own.
So when you get home today, instead of crapping out why don’t you make these super tasty pasta noodles masquerading as some quasi-Thai dish?
I know, nothing can beat real Thai food.
But real Thai food involves skill and more oil than I’m willing to ingest.
SO. This is why, I recommend making healthy western food with an Asian inspired dressing. It keeps the Asian in you happy AND it keeps your body happy.
Like look at this baby – it’s fettuccine, sauteed bean sprouts + carrots + mushrooms, grilled chicken, basil + spring onions tossed with a tahini-ginger dressing that was crazy good. Oh – and topped with peanuts and sesame seeds.
At the end of the eating it, I felt light and energized and satiated.
I think when your body feels good, even directly after a meal, that’s a pretty good sign.
