It won’t win “prettiest plate” at any fairs or anything but it got the job done. I was really craving fat tonight which usually means a burger, fries, and a side of guilt.
So I cooked up some Portuguese chorizo, rice, and veggies with hummus. It completely killed my craving. I feel like I hacked my body. You mean I can eat a healthy fat and I won’t want an unhealthy fat?!
Portobello mushroom burger seasoned with basil and oregano, brushed with olive oil and topped with balsamic vinegar and low fat feta cheese. Whole wheat bun with spinach, tomato and white onion.
Romaine and spinach salad with vine tomato, cucumber, and a roasted garlic and herb vinaigrette.
My girlfriend taught me how to make spaghetti squash tonight (can’t believe how simple it is!) and I supplied the salad. It was delicious!
I’ve been too relaxed with my intake lately. I haven’t completely slipped into old habits, but I could’ve been headed down that road. ItTime to get regimented again and stick to one cheat meal a week with all other meals and snacks being clean, and no, I don’t just mean washed (although that’ll likely be necessary).
Top sirloin, roast potato, broccoli, carrots, turnip, and a Yorkshire pudding.
Not a drop of gravy on the plate.
Cooked Christmas breakfast for my parents this morning. Turkey bacon, eggs over-easy, beans, and multigrain toast.
Forgot to take photos though! Sorry!
I’m really thankful that my parents don’t get ridiculous with food around the holidays. Whether it’s thanksgiving, christmas, or birthdays, it’s good wholesome food cooked well.
Sure, there will always be dessert but I don’t have to constantly say no to copious amounts of bad food because there just isn’t any available.
I’m so happy that I don’t need to stress about eating during this time of year.
Thanks Mom and Dad!
