First Week of the Holiday Season – Success!

Last week was a crazy good week of eating!  I succeeded in staying away from unhealthy, inflammation causing foods.  Although I had a couple days of horrible leg cramps, I made it through Thanksgiving and actually LOST weight!  When does that happen?

Monday looked like this:

Jamba Juice for breakfast; a yummy salad with a homemade dressing for lunch; and a yummy Mushroom and Barley soup for dinner.  Click here for the recipe.

Tuesday looked like this:

Leftover Mushroom and Barley Soup for Breakfast; pumpkin seeds and cashews and sauted veggies for lunch; and Butternut Squash and Apple Soup for dinner.  Click here for the recipe.

Wednesday looked like this:

Butternut Squash Soup for breakfast; Cabbage Soup (I pulled from my freezer) for lunch; and Asian Ginger Garlic Soup for dinner.  Click here for the recipe.

Thursday was Thanksgiving.  I had the last of the Asian Ginger Garlic Soup for Breakfast.  The rest of the day was all about the food I made for Thanksgiving.

Friday and Saturday was all about leftovers.  Sunday I was out of Thanksgiving leftover and so I finished of the Mushroom and Barley Soup leftover.  Now I’m off and running on a new “left overs” creating week of healthy foods.  It’s a busy week so most of what I make will have to be a crock pot meal.  More soups.  I haven’t figured out how to make crock pot vegetarian meals that are not soups.  Maybe some day!

Thanks for checking in!
