I had terrible food issues yesterday. Food items were fine, but the nutrition was carb heavy, protein and veggie light - so I just couldnt stop eating. I just couldn't seem to stay "full" for more than 2 hours. I drank over 10 cups of water, just trying to drown it. When I finally realized what was happening, it was too late. Seriously, I found myself eating half a can of beans at 9pm last night (rinsed, drained, cold and unseasoned) in an attempt to make some kind of choice that I could at least live with.
So last night, I made an Asian 3 bean salad (Ellie Kreiger's recipe, its also on SparkRecipes) and left it to marinate and this morning I made a North Carolina Cole Slaw, vinegar, no mayo. Now if the munchies hit, I am ARMED with HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES. These batches are big enough and the veggies are sturdy enough to last a few days.
Hah! Take that metabolism!
I'm inspired to post this because of someone else's blog about "Today in the Battle of Food vs Woman - the Food Won." We all have days like that. And sometimes you finally get your act together with the right munitions and can fight back the next day.
