Timing is everything

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted anything. Very busy with all sorts of stuff and some jobs just seem to fall out of the edges if you know what I mean. I have had a lot of thoughts about timing of meals and I have personally found it very helpful to have meals at set times of the day. It does help my system to learn when food is going to arrive. It also helps me if I feel hungry because I can look at the clock and say - oh it is 90 minutes before my next meal. Then I go make myself a nice cup of green tea to sip, and busy myself with a job (lots of those!) and the time just zips by. Sometimes I make my meals a couple of hours in advance, so when I go to the fridge there is a big box of fresh salad waiting for me at the right time. This means that the meal is actaully put together at a time when I am not hungry, so I can focus on what I am preparing with a little more equanimity! This season has been very bad for squashes and I really miss the spaghetti squashes I used to be able to get. I hope this coming year is better. I have just found a good recipe for 'spaghetti' made by steaming very finely cut runner beans and serving them with cherry tomatoes. This looks like a 'must make'!
