So as I seem to do every week, I love to participate in What I Ate Wednesday, the fun time started by Jenn at Peas & Crayons. Be sure to visit and see what everyone is doing to get back on track. I am too, regardless of how my food looks this week! I’m not sure if Jenn is cooking up a new theme, so I’m going with the standard this week.
A leftover from New Year’s Day. As we did on Christmas Day, we went out for Chinese food. It wasn’t intentional, it just happened that way. Different restaurant, different dish…this time Veggie Delight with brown rice. Still one of my faves.
On Friday, Ralph and I went out to lunch with ladies I used to work with. I was proud of myself because I researched on-line prior to going to know what I could eat there. Lucky for me, they had a beautiful salad bar, which they call a “produce bar.” I love that. I still tried to be on track because I was facing my weigh in on Saturday.
This was excellent! So much so that I went back a second time to eat its twin. Well worth the price and the travel time to get to this one!
Over the weekend, we went to the diner where I can get one of my favorite lunches…a veggie gyro.
It comes with a small Greek salad…you won’t get any argument from me on this.
This is not the best photo ever because the gyro was wrapped tighter than usual. Didn’t make it any less messy 😉 but it still tasted good! It is supposed to come with either fries or potato salad. Both are very tasty at this diner, but I was being mindful of my food. I requested cottage cheese in place of either of the other choices. Up my protein and I don’t even have to think hard to count it into my day. Very good.
Monday night found me getting back on track and into my mindset of eating right. I went with one of my veggie combos.
Onions, garlic, an entire yellow squash, red bell pepper, cabbage, crock pot black beans, cottage cheese and topped with some Locatelli cheese. Big, delicious and all I had to count were the beans, cottage cheese and grated cheese. Sometime soon I have to talk about me and the amount of food I eat. Recently someone thought that I was feeding several people out of one of these dishes. No Just Me.
Now the Holidays are officially over. I am officially back on track (and feeling really good about it!) Going to try to get a little more creative with my food. We all know that usually gets me into trouble! 😉
Be sure to stop over at Peas & Crayons to check out all of the delicious food everyone will be posting today. It’s great fun, so don’t miss out and as always, please leave some comments!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday! What are you eating today?!
