I am not a health food addict. Though if you ask anyone who has spent some time eating with me they may say I am careful about what I eat. I don’t do sweets unless I’m going to make someone feel bad for not eating their homemade apple pie. I very rarely eat pasta or any other starch unless it’s sprouted grain or some such nonsense and the last bottle of soda I purchased to “quench my thirst” was probably 8 years ago. The fact of the matter is I didn’t grow up consuming that stuff and no one in my family eats a lot of so-called junk. I’m not consciously trying to be extremely healthy. I’m just much more interested in food that make me feel good. What this normally ends up meaning is while I like my junk food (Ramen, potato chips, Chinese take-out …pizza) I usually manage to throw something in with it to make it somewhat nutritional so it doesn’t make me completely ill.
The way I see it is there is no point eating it if it isn’t going to somehow fuel my body and keep me going! I don’t have much time to eat right so I admit that I occasionally cut corners. I started thinking about how my unhealthy eating often looks kind of healthy to a lot people and decided to start sharing my unhealthy healthy eating with you my friends! You can Google healthy recipes but let’s be honest sometimes all you want is some good old crap to soften the rough edges around a bad day. So I’m going to post some of my favorite “healthy” junk food. I shall call it Hunk food (no it does not come with Antonio Sabato)
Brown Bag Popcorn:
1. Get an old fashioned brown paper lunch bag
2. Throw some plain popcorn in the bottom of the bag
3. Fold the bag two times
4. Stick the bag in your microwave
5. Select the popcorn cooking option you normally cook your Orville Redenbacher (a.k.a. The Steve Buscemi of popcorn) with.
6. Remove from microwave and eat! If you’re feeling saucy, spray some butter or sprinkle some flavored salt!
(Best when paired with a really great movie, sweat pants, and a really comfy couch)
