Cooking with Smashby: Intro

In my opinion, proper nutrition and adequate rest (aka, sleep) are probably the two areas where our bodies will reap the most benefit, (in terms of maintaining and reaching our physical fitness goals) so paying attention to them is key.
That said, those are two areas of my life where I lack the most discipline…. Nice.

Not getting enough sleep has been an issue for me for at least the last 10 years of my life (likely more than that), and I have never really enjoyed cooking enough to get really good at it. Good start to the “Cooking with Smashby” segment so far, huh?

The purpose of this series will NOT, I repeat… NOT be to provide a replacement page to the wonderful PaleOMG site of my good friend, Juli Bauer (only partly because I will probably never film a dance sequence and be willing to share it with the Internetz). I merely wanted to share stories of how I make some of my meals, given my (self-imposed) time constraints, and hope that it helps some of you guys and gals.

Hopefully you all can not only benefit from some of my quick meals, but also share some of your own ideas (and suggestions on how to improve mine) so we can all learn ways to make delicious and healthy meals TOGETHER. Yayyyy.

My influences and inspirations will come from all over the place, and will likely each have my own little twist to them. That will likely be for two reasons:
1- I can be a picky eater (read: big baby) so I may switch out ingredients that I find “yucky”. Yep, I just said yucky.
2- I may not have the product or device or cooking implement to make a part of the meal properly. In that case, it’s time to “audible” and make do with what I have!

As always with me and my blog, I’m only posting stuff in the interest of trying to help you guys. I don’t really think you’re dying to know what I had for breakfast! So please let me know what you like or don’t like about this, and what you’d like to see more or less of in this series.

Alright, here goes nothing!
