Stumble, but catch yourself and prevent the fall

Things are pretty much the same, well, the food is always changing as I find what works and what doesn’t.  But my path hasn’t diverted.  I’m still working towards improving my overall health, that involves increased physical activity and paying attention to what I’m eating.  I find, with me anyways, I eat great, completely on plan then, I slip a little.  With that slip, I tend to fall into some old patterns, this year, I’ve noticed that while I do slip, I don’t fall.  Instead, I acknowledge that the spoonful of Reeses Peanut Butter spread is FREAKIN’ delicious, but it’s not worth it to finish the entire jar in one sitting.  Believe me, I could do it.

Driving home from Sudbury, Ontario tonight, I thought to myself “is there anything at home that I can have for my lunch”.  Unfortunately, the answer was no.  I shop weekly so ensure that my salad ingredients are fresh and crisp.  That meant, when we arrived home at 8pm, after being away, that I dropped off my DH and off I went shopping.  But, two hours later, groceries purchased, puta away, cooked, chopped, diced and jarred.

All Done!  Super easy salads, Tossed Salad with Chicken & Hot Peppers and Asian Chicken

Enjoying the vegetables of my labour.

Repost: February 3, 2016

This will be a short post, work is busy but I wanted to express how I both enjoy what I’m eating and show that I do eat what I make.

Enjoying the fruits vegetables of my labour.  So this week I made three different types of mason jar salads: Chicken Fajita, Black Bean & Quinoa and Mixed.  To be honest, the last one was created from what I had in the crisper.  My oldest son really enjoys vegetables so I knew he’d like this one.  Well, so did I.
