So, Ive gotten pretty health-conscious recently as you probably know...
Ive lost about 50lbs total, and would like to loose maybe like 20 more. I've pretty much slowed down/stopped watching the weight fall off, but I just feel so good and healthy that I'm generally OK with that. Now its more about continuing a lifestyle that will help me... um... not be a beast again. Or at least not O-beast. HA!
That said... I still like to eat. A LOT. But I'm trying to make everything I eat... good. I'm not a picky eater... I like soy. I like bird food. I like organic. But I like the bad stuff, too.
The good news is, there are a lot of better alternatives now... like... have your cake and eat it too, so to speak. For instance. If I have a chocolate craving... I eat this:
(Not the 24 pack, tho... just one)
With some of this on top:
And maybe top it off with some fresh strawberries or blueberries or whatever.
Extremely satisfying... totally hits the spot. I would say it if it weren't true, I don't b.s. about dessert, people. Its a very VERY important part of the circle of life.
I know people probably aren't really interested about the daily details of all my diet tricks of late... but this morning I had an AMAZING breakfast, I thought I'd share the dirty details on.
(I know, I see you on the edge of your seat!)...
I mixed up some Bisquick... you can also make home made waffle batter, but I was feeding the masses, so in a hurry as usual. Then, I added a good half cup or so of wheat germ
and I used half soy milk and half regular milk that was called for. I know, that's kind of boring, but it added a couple extra nutritional elements. But then...
OH, and THEN... (This is where it gets good)...
I diced up some fresh strawberries (I will be sad when THOSE little beauties go out of season) and tossed them in a dash of Splenda, threw it on my soy germy waffle creation, topped the whole shebang with a hearty scoop of my Cool Whip cancer cream... and
This is one of my all time favorite guilty pleasure breakfasts. But I didn't feel as guilty this morning! I think I'm in love. TOTALLY kicks Kashi Go Lean in the shins and runs away laughing.
Go try it!
