Meat coma

I have been seriously craving something gooey, cheesy and decadent the past few days, as I mentioned yesterday. I thought at first I wanted pizza, but it was really just anything carb-y and gooey that I wanted. I’m a big believer in letting yourself indulge occasionally so that you don’t go overboard at a moment of weakness — it’s a really good practice of moderation. I’m still working on doing the indulging thing within limits though, as I tend to go crazy on portion sizes if I’m not mindful of it.

Thinking it would quell the craving, I made some eggplant parmesan after the gym last night. It was FANTASTIC and I wholeheartedly chowed down on dinner last night…took some fun pictures and will post them along with the recipe tomorrow becausessseeee — I got my CF card reader in the mail last night!

Apparently, though, the eggplant didn’t cut it, because when I heard the Gaztro-Wagon was coming for lunch today, I got my dolla bills ready.

Yeah, I just wolfed down a huge sandwich. Slow-cooked beef, cabbage, apple, gouda and bacon, all wrapped up in a warm piece of naan.

Cue drooling.

I’m pretty sure I forgot to breathe before diving into this thing face first. Needless to say, I didn’t take a picture.

Unfortunately I’m feeling kinda yucky now — a little too full but thankfully not stuffed, weighed down and sleepy. Just a reminder that my body runs best on whole grains, fruits and veggies + lots of water. But this was a fun indulgence nonetheless.

In other “news” — hah! news… — I got my very first french press in the mail last night as well! I’ve heard so many good things about them but always thought they were complicated and/or expensive. I won’t lie and say that I didn’t make a huge mess while making my first batch this morning (grounds EVERYWHERE, oh my), but I knew that my massive $24 Amazon investment (seriously, the one I bought cost a measly 24 bucks) was worth it the second my fancy brew hit my lips.

French press coffee is so good. Go out and buy one. Today. Better yet, do it right now. Here is the one I picked out for myself, huge emphasis being on the “shatterproof” part.

I’m no coffee connoisseur, but from what I understand, the French press allows all the oils of the beans to stay in the brew, giving it a richer, smoother and less acidic taste. My morning mug didn’t have any bitterness to it, and it had a much…fuller? mouthfeel. It was GOOD.

Hope you have a lovely afternoon!

    Mmmm. I have been having cravings as of late as well. Probably doesn’t help I watch Man Vs Food a lot lol I usually have a good diet, and I don’t eat a lot of junk food. But I agree that every now and then I have a taste for something. Last night it was hot wings and pizza lol Unfortunately I never got any :P

    Also, never had French Coffee. It sounds good, perhaps I will try some. I consider myself a slight coffee enthusiast. :)
