Winter is here

Well, in my world it is. Our schedule has officially shifted with the weather, and my gym time has shifted with it. No more 5am workouts.  Not sure how my body will react. It's good to change things up..... Right?.... That's what I'm sticking with. I'm adapting with a holiday mindset and lots of soup. I never thought I was a soup fan until I started making my own :)

On with the show:

Sunday: shrimp fried cauliflower rice (the rest of my family sometimes has regular rice when we have this. 


Monday: carnitas with veggie and guac for toppings. over a bed of spinach. the rest of the family had tomatoes, carnitas, cheese, and tortillas.



Tuesday: chicken tortilla-less soup( well, we were going to, but turns out I need to make some chicken broth, so we're having our usual chicken spinach bacon )


Wednesday: Breakfast for Dinner. - Which will be whatever breakfast item they want, as long as they keep it well rounded. A bonus: they can help! 


Thursday: chicken. bacon. Alfredo. (why no a combination that already wins with the fam?)


Friday: this is normally pizza/movie night. Which means we will be staying in together, watching some holiday themed goodness(I'm trying so hard not to be a scrooge this year) and munching on some dinner then seaweed. Oops. That's just me. For them it is pizza and ice cream. 
 I believe in moderation, but I am just not having it right now :)
Above is the pizza I made last week. Here's the link: http://civilizedcavemancooking.com/reviews/gather-review/

Saturday: this is our actual leftovers day.

Taking applications now for chefs and house cleaners. 
Jk!! I'm broke. :)

Meal Prep Monday 11/25/13

My days are a haze of dishes laundry sweeping meal prep dog poop people poop making people foods and watching people eat cake and pizza. And Ice cream.  I never realized how much junk food I was surrounded by until very recently.  But it's cool. I have coconut butter, dates, coffee and Lara bars. Life is good. :)

Sat- leftovers

Breakfast: I made myself a frittata and  hubby has breakfast sandwiches I make him. He's super picky about healthy foods and if left to his own devices lives off bagel bites and chips. Which …

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum. 
Leftover…
