So when I still worked retail, and walked more than 10,000 steps a day and put away about 1,000 pounds of frozen food in addition to other physical stuff, I ate a big breakfast. Eggs, avocado, toast, fruit, vegetables.
For that decade, I worked hard and often didn’t know when I’d have time to eat. Big meals were a must.
But now I’m sedentary (and losing my will to go to the gym) and I’m just not as hungry. And I’m back to my bad habit of not having a proper breakfast.
Luckily, there are a lot of hearty yogurts out there and protein granola bars for a particularly rough start. Trouble is, I bore of food easily.
So when I see a new intriguing, protein-dense breakfast product I try it.
And the Grocery Outlet allows our household to try such things very inexpensively. That’s how I ended up with vanilla Farmer’s Cheese. Now, that was gross. But if I were hungry enough, I could have eaten it.
I also ate it a few days past the expiration but from what I knew about Farmer’s Cheese it is a cross between yogurt and cottage cheese so doesn’t that mean it’s already rotten? It certain had that exact texture.
Next I saw Quark.
Now, it was grass-fed Matcha Quark.
I have no idea what Quark is.
To me, Quark is the software I learned graphic design on nearly 25 years ago.
But I’ve loved matcha since before it was trendy.
Today I saw I had left it in the work fridge. This was good.
It stirred like yogurt, but pulled out of the cup like soft serve. No butter, acidic tang like yogurt. No bits or weird texture like the Farmer’s Cheese.
