Eating Well… Even on Vacation

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.
