Menu Plan Monday: Still Getting Fixed

October 12, 2020

 


 

Good news! Losing weight! Very slowly.

Bad news! Portion control sucks even when you are eating healthy but the food tastes damn delicious. That is one thing about this program that I like, the base recipes are pretty tasty and I can season to my heart's content. 

Menu Plan Monday: A Return to Clean Eating

I mean honestly, how many times do I have to do this? You know, before I learn my lesson? And just stick to a maintenance way of eating? Stress so gets in the way.

Vanilla Caramel Mocha Breakfast Shake

July 1, 2020
Ok, so this has probably been done before but I couldn't find anything in my pre-coffee search.
I woke up late, haven't been hungry, but I know I need to eat, but I really really really need coffee before even thinking about my Zoom meetings for the day. 

I also wanted a reason to use the caramel extract I bought for a different recipe.

Chocolate Shakeology (vegan - you can probably use any chocolate protein mix, my other favorite is Bob's Red Mill)
Vanilla coconut milk (I personally hate almond milk).
Coffee
Caramel extract (from Olive Nation, FAST SHIPPING)
Ice
Blend
Take a healthy sip and add more coffee. 

Start Zoom. Sip while on mute and contemplating non-career limiting statements.

Menu Plan Monday: Week ... ?

May 11, 2020

Let's see, I've been home since Thursday, March 12, 2020. I last remembered to publish here ... on April 7. It doesn't feel like more than a month. I mean, we've been eating on a regular basis. Every. Single. Night. And only eaten takeout a few times, less than a handful.

Menu Plan Monday: Week 4 - All The Overwhelm

April 7, 2020
Quarantine
CDC

I'm giving myself a break, because y'all, just like you, I have no more room in my head. I have all the overwhelm.

Last week I decided to put in a Home Chef order and I thought it wouldn't get here until Friday. April 17, but I apparently updated it to arrive earlier, but I also went grocery shopping and filled up the freezer with meat and vegetables in case it was delayed. So now we have more than enough food and I can stop stressing about going to the grocery store for a week or more.

Menu Plan Monday: Week Three - All The Carbs

March 30, 2020


Week Three Formula: PMS + being "safe at home" (silver lining right) + nothing but rain and clouds for a few days = ultimate storm for emo-eating.

Right now, I am going to give my body and brain what it craves. With some veggies thrown in just to keep things moving. And these Bulletproof gels. I've been taking them for a week now, maybe two...

After a week, I can't give a definitive answer as to whether they are working for me or not. Have any of you tried them?

So, here we are in Week 2 and I really should not be complaining. We have it relatively easy here in Massachusetts compared to other states and countries (as of Monday 3/23/2020 morning when I wrote this, who knows what it will be like tonight).
