<-- I tried making creamed cabbage yesterday for the first time. I think it looks good but it was BLAH. It was so bland but in my defense I had very little to work with! I ended up throwing it out. I don’t think my cream mixture came out right.
Yesterday I walked to my Moms and then later on came home and danced. I still have yet to work out today. For breakfast I had 2 eggs and my multigrain toast and for lunch I made some spaghetti. I had a jar of traditional Ragu in the cupboard and I boiled up some regular noodles and added some extra spices to the sauce with a wedge of my laughing cow light cream cheese. It came out really good! I also toasted a couple slices of my multigrain bread and spread it with my light I can’t believe it’s not butter and sprinkled some garlic powder and parmesan cheese on them in the oven. I know it’s not true diet food but with portion control each serving including my bread is about 400 calories. Isn’t that what lean cuisines are? Regular food just portioned out properly? I don’t have much in my cupboards right now so I got to work with what I have. For dinner I will probably have some more spaghetti. Next time I go shopping I will have to get some whole grain noodles and see if there is a healthier sauce option because I think I will do this more often. It’s cheaper and one small batch will last me a while!
I could not be happier with how life has been treating me lately. It may be the new outlook I have on things but I love it. I like who I am and I am doing what I thought was impossible. I am starting to not take things so literally and am just going with the flow. No regrets. I am living life the way I want to live it and am going to let my heart lead the way. I think I have finally found myself.
