Last week I missed WIAW so this week I have twice as much to say (Yes, that really does rhythm). Lately my eats have been rather basic without much creativity, minus the fried fluff (see below) that stuff was fun. Throughout this post I am going to share more than just a few typical eats, I am also going to share three things I find inconvenient about growing up. There are so many things adults can no longer get away with.
1. No longer having anyone to make me meals or do my groceries.
As much as I love experimenting with recipes and browsing the grocery store, there are just some morning when I would love to have breakfast made for me. Instead I have to throw together something last minute:
Breakfast: Cereal bowl topped with frozen watermelon and grapefruit. In the bottom was puffed quinoa, cheerios, greek yogurt, protein powder and almond milk.
Breakfast: Frying protein fluff! Tastes like roasted marshmallows.
It is as simple as taking the original protein fluff recipe and dropping in onto the pan. Then cook just as you would a pancake!
2. No longer being able to pick up new interests and hobbies as quickly as when you were young.
When you are a kid you can pick up new hobbies and interests at any time. As an adult if you all of a sudden become interested in something eyebrows are raised as to your motives behind the new hobbies.
Cucumber and Fava Beans. I have been loving Fava beans lately. Most likely because they have been fresh. Seriously fresh beans are a whole different species than canned!
Dinner on the Go: Chicken wrap with cream cheese, spinach and tomato.
3. No longer being able to make insignificant decisions
When you are young most decisions will not affect your life in the grand scheme of things. Looking back even the decisions that were so torturously stressful were not life impacting. Now I have to make decisions that completely close doors and will affect my life greatly.
I was never the kid that was eager to grow up. In fact I remember the night before my thirteenth birthday lying in bed feeling like I was about to throw up out of apprehension of becoming a teen. Although this all sounds rather depressing I am not by any means trying to be a downer. I have really come to terms with growing up and am actually completely happy with being the age I currently am. It helps to be able to reflect on some of the disadvantages of being older though.
Were you a kid that always wanted to grow up? Have you had fresh Fava beans before? What negatives do you find about being older?
