Last week I got back on track with my cooking. I find that if I eat at home I eat more veggies and less crap. Also I control the portion size that ends up on my plate and that doesn't suck either!
We're starting to save for our xmas vacation (that includes 2.5 days at Disney World), so eating at home fits right in with that goal too! So my mantra for this week is I love to cook at home.
Last week I made (all in the slow cooker) red beans and rice, fake ground beef and mushroom tomato stew, vegetable soup with cheese tortellini, and bbq temepeh. All of them turned out great - the only change I would make next time is to leave out the boca Italian sausage from the vegetable soup - it just didn't add anything and I ended up picking it out.
My goal today is to get a dinner plan for the week. Tonight will be Indian (taste of india ready mades - but low in calories and fat), I just need to plan the rest of the week.
