With only about a 24 hours left until game release, I took some time to prepare myself for the days to come. I got the week off from work so I needed to stock up on healthy food that requires little to no preparation time.
In years past, I used to have the typical Mountain Dew Doritos gamer diet whenever a highly-anticipated game came out, but as I’m getting older I’m starting to be more wise about choices that affect my health. So the idea is simple – relatively healthy foods that I can eat while playing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
This is the result:
- One half of a Pineapple
- Baby carrots – 4 packs
- Mandarins – 1.5 kg
- 2 Bags of Mixed Nuts (800g)
- Bounty Chocolate bars – 4 pack
- Tomatoes on the vine – 500g
- Bag of Quinoa (500g)
- 3 Dark Chocolate Bars
- 3 Pringles Cans
- Green Grapes (1kg)
- Plain Greek Yogurt (1.25 kg total)
Total Spent: 101.96 CAD – (84.85 USD)
Ok, I cheated a bit with the chips and Bounty bars, but I think on the whole this is a pretty good set up. Quinoa does require some preparation, but it’s still a relatively easy dish to prepare. Also as you may have noticed I didn’t buy any fruit juice because eating whole fruit is far, far better.
When you really get down to it, juice is just sugar and water – it doesn’t have the fiber and many beneficial compounds found in the fruit it came from. I’m going to stick to good old H2O!
Are you ready to play some Witcher 3? 🙂
