‘Tis the season for all sorts of wrapping. If neatness is not your forte, you are likely still cleaning up all of the crumpled wrapping paper left behind from your holiday gifts. If you live in a part of the world where winter is at its peak, you are probably wrapped in layers upon layers of warm clothing. You might also be wrapped up in achieving your New Year’s resolution, whatever it may be.
If you are anything like me with an insatiable Bottomless Stomach appetite, you are wrapped up in thoughts about food right now. You are thinking about how delicious your last meal was…looking forward to your next one…and figuring out what to do with that darn package of sushi nori that has been sitting in the back of your pantry since goodness knows when.
I am not only thankful for my friends, family and a wonderful Thanksgiving feast to (almost) fill my bottomless stomach, but I am also thankful for all of YOU. Whoever you are; wherever you come from; whatever you do with your time–I greatly appreciate you taking a brief moment of it to visit my blog and share your interest in all things food. From the bottom of my stomach to yours, CHEERS!
Throughout last week I gave you a look into my lifestyle of making high-volume food choices to deliver utmost portion satisfaction while steering clear of overindulgence. My apologies for this slightly delayed post for the final installment. Sometimes life gets busier than we expect, but I assure you, I indeed had the time to enjoy the following feast:
Each day this week has brought a plethora of high-volume, reasonably wholesome spreads I have shown you to demonstrate that you can enjoy extra-large meals and portion sizes without overindulging. Today was no different…
It is time for day two of my full week of high-volume eating documentation. I would much rather have an entire cake than a small sliver. If you agree, I hope this inspires you to keep your plates full by making food choices that maximize portion size and nutrients for the amount of calories they contain. Believe me; your satisfied belly will thank you.
I would like to take the opportunity to provide a visual account of my high-volume style of eating. Each day over the next week, I will be posting examples of every meal I prepare to give you an idea of how making choices to get the largest portion size for your macronutrients can result in satisfyingly full plates (and lots of them). It does take some time and effort for food preparation, but it is well worth it. I assure you, when those plates are empty, your stomach will not be. If nothing else, please enjoy the food porn!
There is no such thing as an inopportune time for bento. Whether you are a back-to-schooler, office employee, or just a work-at-homer who likes to have fun with food, the adorable, delicious, and high-volume combinations are endless!
