I made some soup tonight. It's potato, corn, carrots, and shrimp. I am SO excited to eat it! Sauteed some onions, carrots, corn, and potatoes. Pureed about half of it with some chicken broth. Added some shrimp to the non-pureed half. Added puree back in with some more chicken broth. Little pinch of thyme and cayenne pepper - just tasted a little smidge and it was really good. I can't wait until it is ready!!!
And there is nothing bad in it. I even managed to make it creamy without cream (pureeing the veg). Homemade soup tastes like it should be so unhealthy, but it's not! I love knowing exactly what's in my soup. Makes it very easy to keep it low-cal.
Painted my nails today instead of eating. Wahoo! Keeps me from eating and keeps me from biting my nails. It never lasts, though. They are already starting to chip from cooking, but that's ok with me. It shows that I do stuff with my hands. I kind of like that - I'm not a high-maintenance kind of girl anyway.
My eating was really good today. I wasn't hungry at all today, and I didn't eat out of boredom. That was even without the gym! If I can keep this up, I'll be right back on track.
Mmmm I think the soup is ready!
