While I haven't been blogging as much, I have been making an effort to turn my diet back around. As I've said before, Pennsylvania threw me for a loop and not only did I gain 15 or so pounds, I also didn't care to do anything about it. That brief lapse in judgement has since faded (along with winter, which may have something to do with it) and now I'm stalwartly forging forward in weight loss. Here's some of the stuff I've been cooking up...
|Lightly wilted kale with black beans, onions, peppers, garlic, and a slice of wheat bread from Le Pain Quotidien (we brought some back from our trip to DC!)|
|Quinoa with peas and shrimp|
|White bean and broccoli soup with quinoa (and more of that wheat bread!)|
|Steel cut oats made with almond milk, Greek yogurt, stevia, and a dollop of Justin's chocolate hazelnut butter (my favorite of all the butters)|
|A Fiesta Bowl/salad conglomeration topped with Greek yogurt and crushed pineapple...just looking at the picture makes me want to eat a vat of it.|
|Steel cut oats mixed with lemon Greek yogurt, toasted coconut (my best idea yet!), and almond milk. And more of that hazelnut butter, natch.|
Not pictured: all of the other shit I'm too ashamed to take pictures of because I shouldn't be eating it. This healthification is a struggle, let me tell you. But I'm enjoying the ride.
