It was rough trying to eat healthy again. I made a batch of hummus this week to curb my temptation to eat Cheez-Its. It’s way too easy to dig into a box of those cheesy crackers. Now, instead of dipping my hand into the box, I dip a baby carrot in some fresh homemade hummus.
Every time I craved chocolate, I ate some grapes. It took a few weeks of holiday eating to get derailed off the healthy track, so it’s going to take some effort to get back on track again. Baby steps with baby carrots and grapes!
The other pitfall I’ve been facing is alcoholic beverages. I drink way too much wine and beer and my liver enzymes are a testament to that! With a marathon next weekend, I’m trying to drink more water and drink less alcohol to keep rehydrated and flush out the toxins.
And then, we went to Hooters last night and I had hot wings. See, every day is a struggle but today is a new day. Today and for the rest of the week, I will drink more water, drink less alcoholic beverages and try to eat better.
As our dinner menus goes in 2013, we’ll continue with Meatless Mondays every week. Since Publix (my local supermarket) has lots of veggies and fish on sale again this week, that will be easy to do. Last week, we ate leftovers for a couple of evenings, so a few of the pinned items carried over to this week’s menu.
Here’s this week’s dinner menu:
S – Ground Turkey Chili
F – Pizza
