I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Here at StoneGable we are a couple pounds fatter and very very happy enjoying friends and family… but now almost everyone has gone home and it is quiet… maybe a little too quiet!
And I am back to eating healthy!
The easy answer is yes… most of the time! But like you, there are days I just don’t feel like cooking… or we go out… or have take-out… or something comes up. I am not a slave to my menu. It works for me not the other way around!!! It also helps that I love to cook and spend time in my kitchen.
I must also let you in on a little secret. I don’t eat everything I prepare. I try to make balanced meals for Bobby and whoever is living with us at the time (we are talking hotel here). But I really try to stay away from a carb loaded diet. I have fibromyalgia (another little secret) and carbs can make me very achy. I do eat beans and legumes… but almost no white starches or white sugar.
Take Monday’s menu for example. I’ll eat the salmon and green beans but not the potatoes! Staying away from a lot of carbs/starches/white sugar and choosing more protein makes me feel better and keeps food cravings away!
Bobby loves pasta so I make pasta often. I love it too… but if I eat pasta it will just be a very small portion. It took me a l-o-n-g time to figure out that eating pasta was not worth feeling like I had been run over by a truck!
Now you know!!! I’m so happy you asked!
