What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

YES ! YES ! YES !!
You are worth the effort to make a food plan.
You are worth the effort to cook healthy, delicious meals that look good on a plate.
You are worth the effort to sit at the table and use the “good dishes”.
You are worth the effort to do whatever it takes to make yourself feel well cared for.
And here is a great (Easy) recipe. Marinate, bake, eat!
4-6 skinless boneless chicken breasts
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup raw sugar
1 cup ketchup
2 Tbsp minced garlic
Mix soy sauce, sugar, ketchup and garlic in a container large enough to marinate the chicken breasts. Lay the chicken in the marinade and put in refrigerator overnight (2 nights are better). Turn over every 12 hours. When ready to cook, place chicken breasts on a baking sheet and bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.
My family likes it with gravy topped rice and peas. It’s also good with mashed potatoes and carrots. It;s pretty much good with anything.
*I marinate mine in a gallon ziplock bag.
*Cold leftover chicken is wonderful the next day sliced thin and placed on top of a crisp green salad.

To lift your mood: Lentils
Your brain needs folate to synthesize serotonin and dopamine, and research reveals that people with depression often have insufficient blood levels of folate. To get 90% of your day’s worth, work a cup of lentils into your lunch or dinner.
