I got a little more variety this past week. For breakfast most days, I had a smoothie with berries from my freezer,spinach and a banana. On most days for lunch I had a salad or some soup.
Last Tuesday was National Nachos Day. I decided to make my own Healthy Instant Pot Refried Beans. The family enjoyed all the nacho fixings. I was content with some chips and this relish bean dip!
I was in the mood for a desert so we made No Sugar Healthy Carrot Cake
My husband and I went to the coast to get some R&R (read about it here Satisfied with a little R&R) and we still ate healthy. For lunch we had Hannah’s Roasted Tomato and Bell Pepper Soup and a great salad. To splurge we made whole wheat rolls to go with the soup.
We made Wendy’s Tomato Pie for dinner one night.
For breakfast we made a variation of Asparagus and Sunny Side up Eggs over Grits. Instead of asparagus we made a veggie mix of bell peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, onions and spinach. It was pretty good.
We also made Greek Hummus Pizza for a dinner.
It took a little planning, but it was easy and quick to do in the hotel kitchenette. Well worth it! Sadly, I did go nuts and ate popcorn at the movie theater. I paid for it though. I have now had a head ache for days!
For Sunday dinner I made a pork enchilada for the kids and a veggie enchilada for myself. For the veggie enchilada I sauted eggplant, zucchini, onions, mushrooms, and bell peppers. I layered it in a pan with corn tortillas, veggie cheese, and green enchilada sauce. It was just something I made up with what I had and it turned out really good!
So that was the week. I’ve been at a stand still, a plateau for a month or so. It’s beginning to get to me. I so wanted to reach 100# by the time my son comes home December 6. But my life is still in fast motion and I haven’t been able to plan and prep a good “start” over week of the beginning of the End of Dieting way. I’d like to go back to the basics I first learned of salad as the main meal, etc… like a 21 day thing. I just need the time to prep.
