Things are getting a little better. I’m still not perfect, but I’m feeling good about it.
Here’s my yummy food this week:
For breakfasts, I mostly had oatmeal and sometimes some sausage and fruit. But I did come across something cool this week, Overnight Oatmeal. It’s so simple and I even eat it cold!
I also made some quinoa tabbouleh, chicken salad with grapes and apples. I also tried new recipes for Eggroll Skillet (like a deconstructed egg roll – Thanks, Angie K!) and Collard Slaw this week. (Sorry, no pics for these. My bad!)
I also made this lovely, lovely Cucumber-Grapefruit Salad. At first, I wasn’t too excited about making it. But I had all the ingredients so I thought I’d give it a shot. OMG I’m glad I did. It. Is. AMAZING. It’s so fresh and tasty! I’ve actually made it twice now. The first time I made it, I served it with herbed brown rice (SQUIRREL – I made this up. I just added some fresh parsley, dried cilantro, garlic and salt. SOOO GOOD!) and some leftover lamb meatballs. I was really proud of myself for this meal!
I also whipped up a Strawberry-Rhubarb crisp… and ate the whole thing within 24 hours.
Here are my observations this week:
- When I eat the way I’m supposed to (and don’t cheat or mess up), I am less bloated.
- I also lose weight (I was down 2.5 pounds at my best this week).
- I have more energy and am in a MUCH better mood when I eat right and get enough sleep.
- I need to exercise more. I think it would make a major, positive difference.
OK, that’s all for now! Have a wonderful day! 🙂
