My motivation is seriously beginning to waver in this whole eating thing. So to keep it real with you guys, I just want to let you know that I am opting for an abbreviated version now (aka cheating version). My meals will still for the most part be grain free, sugar free, dairy free and gluten free, however, I will not shy away from cheating more. Sunday - Black bean soup (the girls ate chicken noodle soup with a bagel). No one felt 100% that day so soup was in order.
Monday - Paleo Skillet Meal. I threw in some broccoli slaw instead of celery and zucchini. No one really liked this meal. I'm pretty sure I was the only one who ate it. Sigh. I've made it before exactly like the recipe and I liked it, but again was the only one.
Tuesday - Kids eat free at a local place called Taqueria Tsunami. It was basically a taco salad with grilled chicken. I ate a salad with no dressed. (aka BORING) Hence the beginning of my lack of interest in this diet.
Wednesday - Breakfast for dinner. The girls ate Trader Joe's gluten free & dairy free pancakes with bacon. Scott and I ate scrambled eggs with chopped onion, red pepper, spinach and feta (only cheese for me not Scott). This was our 9 year anniversary. What a way to celebrate: eggs & wine.
Thursday - Burrito Bowls. We had our best friends here over for dinner. Katie and I have been agonizing championing this diet together. We skipped the rice and just did lettuce as the base. The kids munched on cheese quesadillas, corn and black beans.
Friday - I spent the day in the doctor's office and ER with Rory. We didn't get home until almost 6:00 so Chick-fil-a was in order for the rest of us. One weary momma.
Saturday - by this point, I was officially over this diet, and we were craving hotdogs on the grill. Our hotdogs did come from Whole Foods along with whole grain buns. I made the infamous slaw again and this meal was music to my ears.
Limiting processed food and refined sugar really works well for me (along with gluten free choices). Our meals are almost always dairy free, sugar free and gluten free. I made it two weeks. Good enough, right? And as soon as I gave up on my diet, I came across this print on Pinterest. Ugh.
(Remember, I always tweak recipes as needed to fit our needs)
