ok friends…this is going to be short, sweet, and to the point, because i have been working my behind off on my other blog and i am tired!
i have to share two recipes that were wonderful, and then i’m out.
ohhhh mmmm gggg it was delish! brian doesn’t really like sweet potatoes (i’ve probably said that already in a previous post) but i have a hard enough time finding paleo recipes as it is, let alone ones that we both love. hey, some days you’re the pigeon, some days you’re the statue. anyway. i put some ham on his and some turkey on mine. would’ve been great with bacon but we made do. i will for sure eat this again.
then for dessert, i tried paleo chocolate mousse
i didn’t do the whole banana bit. i had the stuff for it, just didn’t wanna mess with it for some reason. i also trusted brian to read the recipe to me as i made it, and i’m pretty sure he didn’t tell me to blend just the coconut milk by itself first, before adding all of the other ingredients. which i should have known anyway, because i had to leave it in the fridge overnight so it would separate, and there’s really no other reason why you would need to do that. ugh. i think that messed up the consistency, because you were only supposed to leave it in the fridge to set for 3 1/2 hours, but when i woke up this morning, it was still soupy 😦 i put one in the freezer and it was pretty good, but melted quickly. unsure if i will attempt it again.
i had a horrible day, so brian treated me to dinner at our favorite vietnamese restaurant. i had pho, which is a soup that’s mostly broth, your choice of meat (i had seafood) and fresh veggies like bean sprouts, jalapeno, etc. it does come with either rice or egg noodles, but i avoided those. i also skipped my usual egg rolls and coke 😦
i think the initial weight loss has probably plateaued now, and it’s time to start adding more physical activities. it has been super hot the last few days, and i am off this weekend, so i for sure see swimming in my near future.
still feeling great every day. not even missing soda or any of my other usual favorites. not saying i wouldn’t be eating or drinking them if i could, but i am now consistently and deliberately choosing what i put into my body.
today for lunch at work i had a salad with asparagus, avocado, toasted almonds, tomatoes, grilled chicken and strawberry mango vinaigrette. it also came with goat cheese, but obviously i omitted that.
i think that’s all i can handle for now before i crash.
