This was our dinner tonight. I had some ripe avocados. We had gotten some lump crab meat at fresh & easy the other day. So naturally, crab stuffed avocados had to be on the menu this week.
For lunch today, I had albacore tuna salad in 1/2 a whole wheat pita, topped with micro greens. A few pretzels on the side. Made with same lo cal mayo. I don't seem to mind it at all. I know some do. But it works for me.
It too was delicious!
One of my favorite snacks is a piece of lo fat bread, with a thin spread of almond butter (love this stuff!), and a thin spread of Nutella. I had Nutella for the first time when my Mom and I were in Italy a few years ago. They have it on everything over there. It is very yummy. And sometimes I slice half a banana on top. This is almost desert-like delicious!
I am certainly not going hungry! I am losing, although slowly. When I was exercising, I lost the weight quite a lot faster. With a bum knee, I am not doing much lately. Not even racing Noah, as he loves to do around here. But I am down 8 pounds. Clothes are feeling better on me, and I feel a BUNCH better just by changing what I am eating. And another thing that has made this kind of fun for me, is that both of my daughters are on this same health food thing that I have been on. We have really shared a whole lot of ideas and products with one another, and it has made it fun to share this with them. We go to Farmer's Market together, talk about new finds, and I know they are really cheering me on in my quest to shed my winter coat.And maybe every once in a while, I will throw in an old school kind of Kris menu too!! You've gotta live!!!
Over and out, on this wet, rainy, and cold Wednesday night.
PS Mama, thank you for teaching me to love good food. You are the best cook I know. I got my love of cooking from you. And my girls got their love of cooking from me.
