One of the things about writing a healthy living blog is that you examine your food more and think about it more than a normal..uh…Regular person does. Thinking about it, examining it, planning it. It all happens much more than I might have thought.
The other day when Ralph and I went to lunch, I ordered an omelette for lunch not realizing that if it came from the lunch menu, it would come with extras. It came with a side salad and I really was in the omelette mood rather than the salad mood at the time. I asked the young lady to wrap it for me to take home. She did. I didn’t however, eat the dessert that came with it…a certain little cowboy did…Sherriff Ralph to the rescue.
Not big, but a good starting point.
A few additions from the fridge. The very last of my Romaine…gotta get to the produce market! Home made black beans, green bell pepper and shredded cheese.
It came with ranch dressing which I mixed with light balsamic vinaigrette. Very tasty. A Hit! :-)
I’ve been telling you lately how much I’m enjoying my oatmeal/oatbran combo plain with Splenda and almond milk. I decided to experiment on Wednesday and well…
I decided to add some fat-free vanilla yogurt in place of the almond milk.
It was a little too tangy, even with added Splenda. I thought it would be more vanilla flavored, but sadly not. I ate it anyway, it wasn’t dreadful and I wasn’t about to waste it. I’ll be going back to plain and simple today, I think. A Miss. :-(
All day Wednesday I had a nagging headache. Ralph was set for dinner with leftover crock pot roast, so I needed to find something that would be simple, but filling because I felt that otherwise it would be a grazing night…constantly looking for something to snack on.
Whole wheat pasta, home-made black beans, diced tomatoes with green chilies and Parmesan cheese. Very simple. I should have added a few more spices, but…
It was tasty and filling. Another vote for having beans made and ready…it makes coming up with a meal so much easier! A Hit! :-)
Sadly, the headache is still with me this morning. I’m thinking it may be because I had no coffee yesterday…I know that can do it. I’m drinking some right now hoping it will help. No change yet, but I should have thought of this yesterday…Miss… :-(
Hoping for the day to improve as I go along. Hope your’s is terrific!
