Not every meal needs to be an epicurean delight

Not every meal needs to be an epicurean delight

This morning, while I was eating a bowl of oatmeal, I violated our “no screens at the table” rule and scanned through my Instagram feed.

It was picture after picture of stunning, mouth-watering, decadent dishes. (I follow a lot of food bloggers.)

My oatmeal started to look pretty bleak in comparison.

Then I remembered that food doesn’t always need to be the Best. Thing. Ever.

Sometimes food is just fuel.

And, even if it’s not pretty, a bowl of oatmeal with peaches, raisins, flax seeds, and hemp hearts is some darn good fuel.

I agree. I enjoy my am oatmeal and want it to be filling. Dinner — a pretty plate defintely adds to the eating experience. Funny how that works??!?

I think you may have a blindness to the beauty of your oatmeal that comes with familiarity… that is some very pretty oatmeal!
