June goals - Consolidating. Protein.

Friday, May 24, 2013

Hi all.

Well no surprise to anyone but me that my grazing was a much bigger issue than I realised! Toned it down to ONE fruit and nut snack per day, plus three wholesome meals... and voila! Along with my more consistent exercise the weight is once again dropping off. Mind you, it took nearly 3 weeks to sort it out and just DO IT!

And you know what? Having the mentality of 'No worries, I'll have a good hearty meal soon.' is incredible, compared with the very stressful cupboard banging anxiety of 'not having enough'. Lighter shoulders in more than one way.

So along with April spent sorting out my portion sizes, I am feeling SO much better.

June I shall be concentrating on making sure my cupboards always have appropriate protein in them so I can always have a little at each meal/snack. Here's a list of what I have around at the moment

tofu - use that a thousand ways
a batch of homemade bean stew
a big pot of lentil soup
nuts - this week almonds and walnuts
soy protein powder (to add to my smoothies, porridge etc)
chick peas sprouting (sprouted and raw they are great in salads or in my snack - taste like raw peas)
goat's milk feta
chickpea and sunflower seed burgers
spirulina (also for smoothies, porridge etc)


Yesterday's Carrot, feta and sprouted chickpea salad, with Kale chips.



Tonight's lentil soup with peppered polenta tofu fingers

    Oh, and I forgot, the pictures of the food look amazing. I would love to know how you make those tofu fingers. Joann

    I have just skimmed over a few of your blogs and I like your attitude. Introspection is so important.
Thanks for the friend add. I added you back.

Good luck on your June goals. I have been adding more protein to my diet too. I don't know when I decided to eat such small amounts of protein - but the change has been really helpful to keep me feeling fuller during the day and not binging at night.

    Ah...grazing.
I found myself doing that today and I have GOT to nip that behavior in the bud! (The good news is that I tracked it.)

It sounds like you have a pretty good plan going. I wish you well.

The salad looks yummy and thick soups are some of my favorite things to eat.
