I’m dieting, which means we’re coming up with new and exciting ways to eat healthy foods. I began by purchasing this book and it’s pretty great. We’re eating a lot more veggies and more often. TobyJoe and I eat pretty well to begin with, him more so than me. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t the occasional pizza, the occasional burger with fries, and the occasional 13 cupcakes. It’s when you bring all the occasionals together that it starts to look less like an occasional and more like a habit. So, we’re cutting out the occasionals.
Last week TobyJoe cooked up some cauliflower. It was delightful. He cooked up more than necessary so I could continue to snack on it while he was at work. You see, my weakness since the baby was born, has been waiting until the very last minute to eat and I’m starving by that point. So I end up grabbing something less than healthy. For example, eating some Lite Cheese Curls is fine but when you finish the entire bag, well, that kind of kills the whole “lite” aspect.
By making that extra bit of cauliflower, I could snack on it instead. But we live with Murray and we left the pan unattended for a few minutes. And that was stupid.
