Aubrey and I haven't made any new recipes lately, but we did start growing some herbs at home. We have had this kit to grow herbs for....I have absolutely no idea. More than a year? Quite awhile. It just kept sitting on a bookshelf just begging to be used.
So we broke it out and chose four of the herb options that we thought we might use the most.
Dill and Sweet Basil
Chives and Cilantro
We don't really know what we're doing, but so far they seem to be doing alright. Does anyone have any experience at this? We are basically just following the instructions on the box and hoping it works out! Especially since I LOVE cilantro!!
We were going to experiment some more for dinner last night, but were invited to go out to eat. I actually did really well with eating out. There was a salad bar and I only ate a romaine salad, with veggies, a little hardboiled egg and fruit on the side. I got a taco salad with a bit of refried beans, shredded lettuce, and avocado. I didn't eat the shell. THEN, I was given a bag of candy as a late Valentine's Day present. And not just any candy, but jellybeans and Cookies & Cream hearts. Jellybeans are yummy, but did not tempt me nearly as much as those dang cookies & cream hearts. I LOVE THEM. With a great passion. So yup, I ate all six of them. Bah!
I've been doing better when the cravings come (more like smack me across the face), but I am nowhere near perfect! I actually try pretty hard to eat on a schedule as it really squashes the urge to eat whatever I can get my hands on.
Pistachios still rock by the way. So glad I finally just tried them!
Oh and when I'm really craving something sweet, but want to keep it healthy I have been pairing red grapes with all-natural string cheese. I like to freeze the grapes for about 10-15 minutes and it gives them this great texture. Takes away the icky texture of when they are too watery, but they aren't in there enough to actually get frozen, which my teeth are very thankful for!
That's all I have for now!
What do you do when cravings jump out at you from nowhere?
