Very Interesting!

Sunday, September 01, 2013

Since I have been on my journey to health, Im taking my hubby with me , whether he want so to go or not!. Im only cooking healthy recipes and we have been surprised to find some really great tasting ones! Tonight hubby cooked because we were supposed to have shrimp fried rice. I don't make it as well as he does. So he found a lightened recipe on Food Network that was absolutely wonderful!! Plus I didn't have to cook tonight! The recipe , in case anyone is interested is on Food Network and it is called Lightened Shrimp Fried Rice. I think it has 384 cal for 1/4 of the recipe , which is ALOT! We have also been having at least one meatless night a week and I found a great Portabello mushroom recipe that we love.
I just want to make some cookies but I really don't want them around, even the low cal ones. I never met a cookie I didn't like! So I wont bake for the time being. I cant make cookies and send them home with the grandkids because one of them has severe food allergies and I have to make special cookies for him.
But one day I will feel like I have enough self control to bake cookies and not eat them all.

    Thank you all for visiting my blog. CHEFPT98, I agree that is really hard. I love baking with the grandkids but Im afraid I will eat too many cookies before they go home. I will just have to save it until the holidays.
    MAJONES1225, That's a great idea, for store bought cookies. But home made cookies I just don't trusted myself yet. But I have made a firm rule that no food is off limits. It just has to fit into my calorie count for the day. Now I have chocolate in the cupboard that is not calling to me, which is a real miracle!
    NANA-B-FITZ, my hubby didn't realize at first until I told him the calories on things I was making. He insisted he hates brown rice so I just made it one day and he didn't even notice it was different emoticon Crazy man!!

    I think not being able to eat and cook with my grands is the hardest part of trying to do this "healthy" thing. When they want to go for ice cream, I want ice cream too. When they want to bake cookies, it's hard to resist.

    I love cookies too and I have them twice a week. I make sure to add them in my calorie intake. I am glad that you and your husband are enjoying your new lifestyle change.
