Taking it easy...

Sunday, February 07, 2010

The weekend is always a little scary for me. I lose the structure of workm and with no children at home any longer, I have little structure at home.

This weekend, I decided to set goals for the weekend to give myself some structure. I decided I would (1) plan mealsl (2) grocery shop: and (3) cook healthy meals to eat at home all weekend.

I did plan the meals. But when I came home and looked in my refrigerator, I realized that I had plenty of healthy food to eat, I just needed to figure out what to do with what I already had. I had lots of fresh vegetables that were not going to stay fresh much longer, so I made a tasty vegetable soup. I took one of the recipes that I had planned on making and modified it to use in the pinto beans I had made earlier in the week that were too bland. The modification made them delicious (just adding onions, garlic, poblano pepper and a searrano pepper with cumin and chile powder- all of which I had on hand). I made vegetable soup with the vegetables and I am now baking home made 100% whole wheat bread from wheat berries I ground in the Vitamix. The bread is in the oven now!

I have done really well on the eating part of my goal for the weekend. I have managed to do it without shopping (which I do not like).

I am happy!
