Day 1 of 120

So I am replacing my eats section with generic breakfast, lunch and dinner titles.  Unless we follow the food plan to a T, Allan doesn't want to know about it. Now, don't get me wrong, I AM following it. I just don't know if each and every one of my food swaps is TECHNICALLY approved.  Like I would rather have a whole wheat tortilla than an english muffin.  I often will put my salad ON a tortilla with the fruit, rather than separate. I might have vegetable soup, rather than a salad, still the same calories, still similar veggies, just a different form.  I'm tracking calories, keeping a balance of all food groups and staying well within guidelines.  Allan just doesn't want to know the particulars. I get it. He's the man of the challenge.  He's right.  Listen to him, not me. I'm just letting you all know how it's going here for the next several months. 

I still will be sharing recipes on my other blog.  I am a month or so behind as I have been cooking up a storm and not posting recipes everyday.  (I'm kinda saving up for April which will be a super busy month and I won't be cooking new things too much, more on that later).  So if you want to see what I am eating or what I have eaten, check out that blog.  Some of the things I don't eat a lot of. Most of the desserts posted I don't eat.  I make them and then giveaway.  I've actually told the family that I am not making desserts over this challenge as I get myself into trouble when I do.  (recent example; Amaretto Banana Bread).  So any desserts posted on the other blog have already been eaten and are long gone.

  1. Herbs are fun and easy to grow. When harvested they make even the simplest meal seem like a gourmet delight. By using herbs in your cooking you can easily change the flavors of your recipes in many different ways, according to which herbs you add. Fresh herbs are great in breads, stews, soups or vegetables. Every time you add a different herb you have completely changed the taste. learn more:

  2. Pssst! I do my own thing, too. Please don't tell. Too much white stuff on that diet plan for me. Waffles. Icky.

  3. I made your balsamic chicken last week! Liked it enough to make it again, but my sauce never thickened.

  4. Im so excited to see your recipes! And hopefully steal a few :)

  5. Good luck on the next challenge.
