Being Lazy and Cooking Easy

We all have dual personalities like Dr. Jekyll and Hyde, not to that extreme though. Don’t you see students who hate studying whole the year (Hyde) turning suddenly drowning in books (Dr. Jekyll) just prior to exams? An employee who hates office, showing enthusiasm for work in the beginning of month. A nagging wife going all romantic when she carries a shopping list in her hand. The examples would be unending.
I tend to the Hyde part of me when I have to cook breakfast, only to turn into Dr. Jekyll when I am preparing dinner for my family. I love to start my days by playing games, catching up with facebook posts (which I can’t do anymore), checking out my plans for the day, getting ready for work and reading news rather than spending my time in kitchen cooking food. In the evening when I am done with most of my work, I love to spend time whipping out a grand feast for my family (especially my two children who love any food I prepare for them).
Happy with Mom's food
I know how unhealthy it is for people to follow a pattern of eating no breakfast, medium lunch and heavy dinner. Being a loving mom, I see to it that my children get good breakfast, good lunch and good dinner without compromising on my own lifestyle. I often keep things ready to fix a quick breakfast before hitting the bed. That makes preparation of breakfast easy for me in the morning. I never run out of eggs, fruits, milk, bread and Kellogg at home. I usually cook something along with the dinner that can be had for lunch the next day as well, because there are times when I am working away from home, and cannot be there to cook lunch.
Rayyan loves Kellogg whereas Farheena loves eggs for breakfast. When I have to pack lunch for Farheena, I do get up very early in the morning and cook a good lunch for her which leaves me free in the afternoon. By hook or crook, I get the best of both worlds. Somehow both my children gain weight differently. Farheena, who doesn’t love chocolates, ice-creams or cakes is heavy whereas I don’t understand why all those weight gaining food doesn’t affect Rayyan. But they both have good immunity and seldom fall sick. They are strong and healthy. That assures me they are getting proper nourishment.
If you ask me why I would go Gupta’s home for a breakfast, I would say simply because I am lazy to cook my own breakfast. Any easy way out is always welcome for me, and off course there is the mouthwatering temptation of innovative recipes which I would love to taste. I do love any food that is easy to cook, healthy and tasty as well. I know it is too much to ask for, but Kellogg makes sure that it is not impossible.
