In our last episode, I 'quit' the role of nutritionist for the hubs because of what we shall refer to as 'the frozen yogurt incident'. Originally he asked me to tell him exactly what to eat, but I knew that would eventually end up where it did. But on top of that I didn't really like 'the job'. Mainly because, well, I'm lazy.
It was a lot of effort to do meal planning like that for the both of us!
Today he was on his own for lunch again. When he came home, he went back to his usual routine raiding the refrigerator while I'm trying to finish dinner. He's stark raving mad with hunger, asking when dinner is going to be ready, and I say never if he keeps blocking my access to the cutting board!
I asked him what he had for lunch. He had a can of Progresso soup. I said, "Not very filling, eh?" He nods in agreement.
Hehe...no, I haven't given up! Still trying to point out how certain foods makes him feel. He's getting it.
After dinner, I offer if he'd like me to pack his lunch for tomorrow. He agrees that my lunches left him less hungry (and better tasting!).
Leftover dill sockeye salmon from dinner, salad with cucumbers and bell peppers, piece of cheese, handful of cherries and mixed nuts. He hates the tuna kit, but there's just a few left.
He's not crazy about the breakfast bars I bought either, but he ate one this morning. Probably doesn't like it because it's not very sugary.
I made another batch of protein bars last night, trying to improve the recipe. I baked them gently this time so they were a little more solid at room temp. The macro components went a little crazy though, way off from what I intended. This is why I'm not really a fan of baking. It's like chemistry, and chemistry was my least favorite science in school! Despite the bazillion recipes online, I haven't found one I like 'off the shelf' either.
Speaking of which, I had a few people ask about my cooking blog. I intend to update it soon. When I originally started it, I wasn't doing low carb. I'm slowly adding new content with my updated cooking style. I have lots of pictures taken, just have to get around to writing them up.
I gave the "Loseit" app a try, but I've decided to go back to "DailyBurn". It calculates the totals closer to the way I expect. And it has food labels in grams, which I prefer. I'm finishing out my tracking with the Spark totals for this month, then switching to "DailyBurn". I'll try to keep Spark updated with my food too, in case anyone finds it useful or interesting to see what I'm eating.
