Witching Hours

Wednesday, October 29, 2014



I would like to have taken off my 5% for the challenge
but it doesn't look good.

I'm still trying....never never never give up.
I get into some strange eating patterns....this week it's red cabbage.
I made a whole head of red cabbage...very thinly sliced...with
2 tbsp. of mayo, 2 tbsp. of spicy brown mustard, 4 tbsp. of balsamic vinegar.
I can't get enough of it.

Hang in there...don't dip into the Halloween goodies emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Feeling Better today...thanks for the get well comments...

One of the good things about using the food tracker is seeing my trends.
I'm happy to say...I am eating around 7 veggies a day not counting my apples.
That is a big change from the way I once ate.....
meat with starch, and starch, and another side of starch.

I've been sautéing my veggies with a tsp of olive oil and a third cup of chicken broth. Gives everything a lot of flavor and minimal fat....I leave the fat for my peanuts.

DOES ANYONE USE HARISSA SAUCE OR PASTE FOR COOKING
DO YOU LIKE IT
AND IS THERE A GOOD BRAND YOU WOULD RECOMMEND?

    Great idea of using broth and minimal oil on the veggies. I have been using avocado, nuts and flax as my go to fats. I do go overboard on nuts, need to cut down.

    So glad you are feeling better Sheryl and that your eating habits have gotten so much better!!! I haven't tried Harissa sauce or paste but it sounds wonderful as I love roasted red peppers which is the main ingredient along with hot peppers & great spices. If you try it, let me know how it is. I saw a recipe online if you want to make it at home if you are interested:

Good job on the veggies!

Aha! The Bride of Young Frankenstein! One of my favorite characters in the movie. "Ah, sweet mystery of life at last I've found you . . . " LOL

You're wise to save some of the fats for peanuts. Peanuts are such good nutrition, but do have fat. I have to do the same thing to have my almonds.
