Salad, Salad and Away…


image

I’ve been feeling like Supergirl lately after all the salad that I’ve been eating. After just two weeks of substituting either my lunch or dinner for a salad, away goes the pounds. I’ve managed to drop 4.8 lbs to be exact. It was so exhilarating to see my waistline shrink a bit and to feel the extra room in my clothing. So now I’m enthusiastic about finding more salad ideas to incorporate into my diet.

Yummy in my Tummy


As my adorable nephew always says as he enjoys a treat to his liking; “Yummy in my tummy,” with his cute little voice that’s like music to my ears. Well, I found myself saying the same thing as I delighted in making a few healthy meals for myself this past week. Earlier in the week I had a wonderful idea to make an antipasto pasta salad. It was my first attempt in making one, but I figured it couldn’t be too difficult. The major challenge for me would be to acquire the taste that I desired. Luckily my recipe turned out well, and my salad was very enjoyable.

Spinach and Pasta Delight


Today I stepped out of the box and actually cooked for myself. I’ve decided that I’m going to put forth as much effort as possible to not eat out, or get my dinner from fast-food restaurants. I made a delicious salad tonight that I must say was appealing to both my senses of sight and taste. I’m sure that I’m not the first to combine the following ingredients together, however, it was an original recipe for me; and one that I can say I’m very proud of.

My spinach and pasta delight:

For The Love Of Cocoa…….. (via sourdoughtheangrybaker)


I just happened to be blog surfing and stumbled upon this post which displayed the cocoa flower / pod in the stage before it is cultivated. What a beautiful, odd, intriguing plant it is. Reminds me of me; hence the name Cocoa Flower 🙂 Any way, the recipe for the cookies looks great although it definitely would not help in me losing weight. And, the pictures are very pretty. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did. I’ll be trying out the recipe on a cheat day far away in the future.

For The Love Of Cocoa........ "Dam-nit, they did it again" cried Olive into the stifling air of the oven room. "I leave the room for one minute, and all the chocolate cupcakes are gone!" "All 12!" The room cleared from the scorn in her voice, Olive not one to usually cause a scene. Looking to soothe her cocoa-deprived soul, I thought to offer my newest team member some Cocoa Puffs cereal, but mentally withdrew the offer before it sprang from my lips. I didn't want to insult h … Read More

Chopsticks and a Fortune…


Is it wrong to have the chinese restaurant programmed into your phone? I find that in my plan to lose weight I must be very organized and calculated. If I don’t plan on the things that I will eat for the day or the activities / exercises that I plan to do, then I am totally thrown off. I guess that’s what I have the Weight Tracker journal for; so that I can be more organized with my weight loss. Being more organized will prevent moments like this; moments when I am dialing North Peking for my regular combination special.
