A blog I follow suggested today be blogger Sunday since we have Black Friday, small business Saturday & cyber Monday. Sunday needed something 🙂
I have had such a struggle of what to eat, how to eat. Veggie? Low cal? Low carb? No gluten? No dairy? After really focusing on how certain foods effect me I made the call to do low carb/low dairy. I can’t live totally w/out dairy but I can cut it out greatly. I don’t want to be like Atkins style but I know gluten effects me so being sure to cut that out completely is the goal. I will keep green juices & fruits. Thankfully Drew’s on board. We both started to eat so unhealthy and because I don’t work being much more sedentary has really had an impact.
So we started Friday. I actually love cutting out carbs because it forces me to be more creative and I end up eating much more veggies which is good! I made us a bunless burger w/ sauteed spinach before Drew left. I love making this because its such comfort food
Today I made roasted brussel sprouts and chicken w/ a dab of fresh ricotta & prosciutto di parma. Amazing. Here’s how you make the best brussel sprouts.
Sautee bacon for about 3 min. Then add in a chopped onion & the cleaned brussel sprouts. Add about 1 TB of olive oil to the pan and plenty of salt & pepper. Cook in a 375 oven for about 20 min
Have I mentioned how much I love New Jersey? The other day we happened upon a little Irish group playing bagpipes. It was amazing!!! AND it is going to snow again this week! Love it!
I’m excited about finally getting back on track and healthy again.
