I’ve never done a post for Platter Talk at 5:30 in the morning.  Until this past Thursday.  My best friend and life partner has caught the  Focus T25 workout bug.  In case you’re not familiar, this condition can cause those afflicted with it to become focused on daily, intense 25 minute workouts, healthy weight loss, and as evidenced by this early morning lunch preparation – healthy and delicious food choices.

I’m not going to lie.  I’ve put on a pound or two, over the past couple of years.  Have I enjoyed it?  Absolutely.  Does this mean I’m advocating a diet and lifestyle that leads to obesity and all of the associate co-morbidites?  Absolutely not.

I enjoy good tasting and good looking food.   Chances are that if you are reading this, then you too share those sentiments.  I had a close friend, many years ago, who confided in me once that he could enjoy a peanut butter sandwich as much as the best sirloin steak, fresh off the grill.   I’m O.K. with a PB & J sandwich now and then but in all honesty, it doesn’t and won’t ever fall into the same category as a good steak.

My point is, appreciation of food and all its facets is a blessing.  It’s no different than a love of fine music, good art, and a love of the written word.   One difference between food and wine and these other examples, of course, is the personal health implications that are inherent with our dietary habits.

Scott’s renewed dedication and pursuit of personal wellness has served as good a reminder that a healthy lifestyle can include food that is high in both taste and nutrition.  Although the  Focus T25 Workout is on the more intense side of a physical fitness routine, it too follows the premise of physical activity and good dietary choices as being central components to the success of our personal journeys on the path to personal wellness and ultimately, better health.   As I also discovered,  when taken to the workplace to enjoy, this lunch will invoke mass feelings of envy and possibly even some levels of jealousy among your colleagues.  Many have made inquires about renting Scott from me for a day or two.  Not a chance.

      He’s doing so well, now if we could just say the same about yours truly… 🙂 Thank you for stopping by!

  4. It’s amazing what a few well-balanced, healthy ingredients can do for maximum flavor and minimal waist. Have you noticed how creaky joints and muscles can be at 5:30 a.m.? Thankfully, the body is forgiving – if it’s well fed!

    1. Brooks,
      Thank you for the great commentary, as always. Thank you too for affiirming that the creaky joints and muscles I am feeling are indeed a universal phenonmena and that it’s not just my body that seems to be less tolerant of such early morning culinary shinanigans. Best to you, my friend!
