Yep, still trying to eat healthy!
Here is what we will be trying over the next 20 days:
Like last time, the recipes are here, but I'll probably be taking notes on what did and didn't work about the recipes. This is way too many meals to go shopping for all at once though. Eating fresher food means I'm just going to have to cave in and go to the store more often. But it will be worth it for the yummy food and health benefits. We've already had the peach-whiskey bbq chicken, and it was a home run. The sauce has a good amount of calories in it, but you don't really eat more than a quarter of the sauce, mostly it's just for marinading the chicken while it cooks, so calorie-wise, it's pretty good.
And on that note, I've started counting calories again. It's a huge pain, but eating healthy is hard when I have no idea if I'm supposed to feel full or not with eating all of these veggies. I've had a few days where I ended up eating less than the daily recommended amount, so I think this will be worth the effort, if only to track how many calories are in each of these meals for future reference!
Oh, and while I'm here sharing this little healthy eating update, I thought I'd share a quick recipe I've tried twice now for lunch. I've been seeing a ton of recipes for egg baked avocados, but to be honest, I'm getting a little tired of eggs lately. So I thought I might as well sub in some Siracha and bacon to change things up.
All you need is 1/2 an avocado, Siracha sauce, 2 slices of bacon, a sprinkle of cheese and some garlic salt and pepper to taste. Broil for 3-5 minutes and enjoy! 235 calories.
Yum! I definitely won't be eating this everyday, since I've usually just been eating a big salad, but it's nice to have other options. Especially when they involve avocados and bacon, which you already heard about how much I love when I made them into a dip.
Also, my husband was being a smart ass, and all like "Don'tcha wanna take a picture of myyyy lunch?"
Yeah, no, that is a boring sandwich. My lunch involves bacon thankyouverymuch.
Luckily sliced bread doesn't tempt me at all, not like garlicky french bread. That isn't allowed in our house right now. :)
So now I'm exploring what else I can do with avocados. Anyone have a favorite avocado recipe they want to share? I'd love to try some new ones!
