OK i admit it. I have had a "couple" of off eating days. The problem was I needed new recipes for my very tall growing and always hungry teenagers. So I found the pioneer woman website with deliciuos recipes. The problem with that is her recipes are like Paula Deen, no low fat ingredients at all. So I am sauteing in butter and olive oil and making pastas that are delicious but High fat. I have found I cannot eat regular pasta without repercussions such as cravings for sugar, salt whatever.
So the positive is I refuse to fall off the bull completely. ( forgive the analogy but I do live in Houston and we just had the rodeo). I am still hanging on and will tweek a few things in my cooking. I will adapt the recipes using healthier alternatives and I will stick to my brown rice and quin oa. safer alternatives for me.
I made a small waffle today and instead of the usual syrup and butter I had cottage cheese and fresh strawberries on top. I trick my eyes into thinking of whipped cream. I put a sprinkle of cinnamon and it was so delish. I am back and happy that I now see mistakes as learning experiences and I can just move on. This is a lifestyle change after all. Ciao
