K.I.S.S

It’s been a while since I’ve had the time or the desire to sit down and write. Actually that’s only a part truth, I’ve had lots of ideas and a desire to write about them, but I’ve been procrastinating quite well.

Today I wanted to talk about food. Food and an acronym I learned sometime in the recent past (don’t ask me when or where from): Keep It Simple (Stupid). K.I.S.S (I know you probably had other ideas of what this post would be about with a title like that, right?

When I was in my younger days and just learning about food and cooking, my motto should have been more is better. If a serving of brownies tasted good, more would be even better! If a recipe needed a spoonful of curry sauce, well two spoonfuls would be even better! Right? (Wrong!) 2015-02-24 17.43.40

But food really is at it’s best if you keep the ingredient list small and simple.

If you keep them as whole as possible, and as recognizable as possible.

The same goes for when you’re trying to improve your health through food; go simple. What do you like to eat now? Can you cut back portions? Or maybe find a healthier alternative (ie stop deep frying your potatoes, and simply bake them instead). You don’t have to do crazy complicated low-carb-this-is-what-my-caveman-grandma-ate (oh and I-had-to-order-all-the-ingredients-from-Japan)…. That’s not really going to help you out anymore than just small, simple changes.

And really, as cheesy as it is, Keeping It Simple (Stupid) is really a great one for life too. You don’t need extras on top of extras to be happy or get through or to make your day.

You just need a few really good simple ingredients.

  1. Word, homie. I read this post earlier when it came to my email but I thought of it again a few !minutes ago because I was worrying about something and then someone called me up worried about something! And I told them that even though its easier said than done, we should try not to worry about stuff that hsnt happened yet. Then I thought I should take my own advice. Then I realized I was making things complicated for myself and instead I should KISS!!!
