I turned down MacDonald's

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Ok so once a week we have "junk food night". Usually this is a Saturday night on the way home from competition. Today not only did I say no to MacDonald's but I actually walked in, ordered and paid for my son's meal and then walked straight back out. I didn't crave the coffee kick frappes that is usually my downfall. I just decided that if I was going to have "junk food" then it had to be relatively healthy junk food. so I had a lamb souvlaki. My treat was a fun size mars bar. After spending most of last night in a fever from the throat infection and not eating enough yesterday because it hurt to swallow, I wasn't too worried about going over my calories. When we went to the comp, I made sure I'd packed an apple and a pear and some cous cous for lunch just so I wouldn't be tempted by the smell of greasy cooked foods. While is was easy today because the weather was nice, I think it will get harder as the cold weather sets in. On my list of things to buy : a good thermos to put soup into. This winter I am going to make sure that I have homemade soup on hand at these events. I'm going to make and stockpile pumpkin soup, tomato soup and pea and ham. I'm over vegetable soup. I think I might have to browse the recipes on here and see what other sorts of soups are out there.

    I dont know if Mcdonalds here in Australia has that. Chicken noodle soup, I hadn't thought of that. How do the noodles go being frozen?

    McDonald's? I like the fruit n yogurt parfait or the side salad with caesar.

Oooh, the soups sound great. I'm always torn on Chicken noodle whether or not to do it grandma's way or add the wine n mushrooms with the homemade egg noodles...I don't dare make my split pea soup...major overindulgence and it's not light on the calories..
