There’s no getting around the too-lazy-too-cook-for-oneself bug when you’re at home for lunch on a hot summer day, or any day for that matter. I’ve heard it many times from friends who live alone: how do you get motivated to prepare a healthy meal or snack? Look no further than your local grocery store or farmer’s market and get what’s in season. That is my dirty little secret. I can admit to eating bananas or ants on a log (i.e. celery with peanut butter and dried cranberries) when I’m really pressed for time and need sustenance.
I had this for lunch last week and I felt much better about eating it than reaching out for a bag of chips. Hey, it happens.
This is as simple as it gets:
- Peel and slice fresh peaches (or just slice nectarines)
- Crumbled creamy goat cheese over the quarter moon slices
- Drizzle with a tiny bit of honey
