I have a client who owns a Greek restaurant, and I can never go in there without coming out with a TON of food - she insists on feeding me! Yesterday it was a dozen spanikopita, 5 cabbage rolls, and three stuffed peppers! Fortunately, I had company coming last night, so the spanikopita got pretty well finished off. The remainder just has to go--there's nothing healthy about that much philo and feta, no matter how delicious it it (I limited myself to one bite last night, so I'm very proud).
I'm freezing the rest in individual servings for THOSE nights - you know, the ones where you are tired and don't want to cook and fast food is *so* tempting. Last night was, in fact, one of those nights. Due to a crazy work day, I hadn't eaten anything all day except half of a homemade, no sugar added, fruit smoothie (225 calories). If I had not had all that food to take home with me, I'm sure I'd have stopped at McDonalds or something. Instead, I had a cabbage roll filled with veggies. Both healthier and tastier!
