Good thing that my Lose the Dough challenge doesn’t “officially” start until next week. I’d be in some serious trouble, otherwise! 😯
Later this week, I am attending THREE foodie events in just as many days!
I’m really looking forward to all of these events. And, they’ll be great practice for Lose the Dough and changing some of my eating habits for the better. My plan is to indulge a little and enjoy myself, but not over-do-it and leave stuffed to the gills.
One of my goals for Lose the Dough is to create well-balanced, satisfying meals. For awhile there, I got lazy with my meal planning– I’d just throw together a bunch of foods and hope for the best. So, not surprisingly, I’d end up starving just a couple of hours later.
Today, I tried to hit all of the major food groups with leftover pizza, a homemade salad, an apple, and some chocolate. 😉
Leftover pizza from last night.
Salad with romaine, grape tomatoes, cucumber, green bell pepper, and sliced almonds.
A Jazz apple.
(Reminds me of Jazz Hands! ;-))
And some chocolate-covered Altoids to satisfy my sweet tooth.
I hit most of the bases, right? 😉
After eating lunch at NuVal, I sipped on some coconut macadamia nut tea that my coworker gave me. Mmm!
And when I got home, I made myself an Arnold Sandwich Thin with peanut butter and banana slices on top to hold me over until dinnertime.
Squash and Spinach Soup
I received a recipe for Squash and Spinach Soup from Mary Ann Esposito’s PR folks the other day, and it sounded so delicious, I just had to pass it along. I might try to make it this weekend! I <3 soup! 😀
We’re having tacos for dinner tonight, so we’re killing two birds with one stone and taking Murphy for a 2-mile walk to the grocery store and back to buy taco seasoning. It’s good exercise for all of us! 😉
Better bundle up!
