Happy Monday folks! I wanted to get on here to try and give you all some encouragement as I've found myself needing some as well. With each new year, I try to give myself reasonable and needed resolutions. I've been going through some personal issues which has made me (for the first time in my life) become a snacker and a person who has a sweet tooth. I'm being serious, I've really never loved candy, cookies, cakes, brownies, etc. but it seems now I just can't get enough of them. I don't know if it's because I'm getting older, the personal crap I'm going through, or just something else all together but it's not very helpful when I'm really trying to get myself as healthy as possible. So I decided this weekend I was going to make a few healthy dishes to get me through the week and so far it's helped. I also bought some really amazing and healthy soup and salad from a girlfriend who makes it and sells it, just what I need sometimes for a quick and easy meal!
So this weekend I made homemade egg salad, using organic greek yogurt rather than mayo and it's pretty tasty. I'm putting it in a whole wheat wrap rather than using bread, which isn't the best but I know it's better for my body so I'll suck it up! I also just sliced up a large English cucumber and soaked it in some vinegar, lemon juice, salt, onion powder, pepper and fresh dill. This is something easy I can snack on when I feel the hunger kicking in. Lastly, yesterday I made from scratch tuna casserole and it was a huge hit in this house. It made a ton so I can have leftovers and was seriously delicious.
I just wanted to let you all know it's okay if we slip every once in a while with our food, I mean I LOVE food and could never just eat eggs and cucumbers forever but it also feels good to be healthy and start taking responsibility for the things I put in my body. I'm including the links below to both the egg salad and the tuna casserole that I made. I added carrots and broccoli into my tuna casserole as well as the veggies that it calls for. Now I'm not saying this prevented me from having my four double stuffed Oreos with a glass of milk last night, but hey, it's all about balance!
