You would think I was talking about my husband or children asking the usual question – What’s for dinner?!
You would be wrong. My children are grown and gone, and my husband is never as hungry as I am when he gets home from work. I’m usually famished!
It’s not that I don’t eat all day. I’m not one of those people who skips breakfast and lunch, then comes home from work starved. Not me. I have breakfast, lunch, and usually a snack or two. I’m just one of those people that’s always hungry. Thus the need for trips to the gym.
That being said, I came home from my workout the other day, hunting through the frig for something quick to make and found some leftover pork. Perfect for a quick pork fried rice dinner. All I had to do was shred a few vegetables into the mix to give my fried rice a nutrition boost, and I had dinner on the table in no time flat.
Nutritious, quick and delicious. Can’t beat that!
