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?

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:

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.

Aww NUTS

Wednesday, October 22, 2014



I buy peanuts in the shell....no additives, no extra sugar or salt...
and it takes time....But even then, I have to watch myself.
I have to be careful about turning a good thing into a bad habit.
You can get into the mode of grabbing a handful here and there and
suddenly you have had 4 servings .

mindful eating..mindful eating..mindful..OH LOOK A SQUIRREL.

I'm going to put a little reminder next to my stash that counts how many times
I've gone to the nut jar.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Yesterday someone made a comment about pizza that brought back memories.
Years ago I booked a 2 week vacation..by myself...at a health spa.
It said Vegan...and I thought that meant vegetarian...
and I confess...I didn't have a good idea of what vegetarian meant either...
but I figured...what the hey.
So There I went to sunny Florida to have my go at taking off weight.
VEGAN another word for "KILL ME NOW" .
This place didn't even let you drink coffee or real tea.
Who lives like that? ...... Zombies...skinny zombies... emoticon

But they had pizza....Their version of pizza....
And to my surprise it wasn't bad.
They took a whole wheat pita, topped it with baby spinach, thin sliced mushrooms, thin sliced roma tomatoes, and a layer of soy cheese. not bad.
{...it might have been even more tasty because I thought it tasted Like real food...
but I digress...}.
Once I got back to civilization...I tried making it with real cheese...
and it has become my occasional treat.
Ya gotta do what ya gotta do



I couldn't resist a little MELODRAMA

Not feeling great today...a change in the weather always cramps my style.
going to try a little strength training .

    I've got razor sharp teeth. I can break into those peanut shells and eat hundreds of them a minute. I was the prototype for the factory peanut sheller machine. and I never feel guilty as peanuts are legumes and everyone knows they're good for you - musically and all.

    I worked in a hospital whose religious beliefs included vegetarianism. This is what they fed patients! OMG . . . I had more than one patient say, "Just kill me now". Rather than that to deal with I just had the family bring in REAL FOOD that fit in with their dietary requirements! Sheesh!

Now, don't get me wrong, I pretty much consider myself a flexitarian . . . and I love my vegetables, and make many meals of vegetables, but put me in a room with a rib eye steak . . . my portion is GONE! No hesitation.

Where there's a WILL there's a WAY

Tuesday, October 21, 2014



The Halloween Commercials are getting to me...and I'm sure that is what they are designed to do. For most people I know, chocolate is a weakness.
I am no exception.
Three times this week, I passed on picking up a bag of my favorite.
{...I don't even want to mention the name...
saying the name has the power of starting a craving...I must resist....}
But by some miracle ...again...I stayed strong.
Instead I bought a container of Hershey's unsweetened Special Dark Cocoa Powder. I make the best mocha coffee...and if I am really desperate,
I'll make cocoa with low fat milk.
Gotta do what we gotta do.

Meanwhile ... my little trip to Fast Food demon land had me craving pulled pork.
So I made my own braised pork with onions, carrots, tomatoes and lean pork
and I have been enjoying it on bok choy or shredded cabbage...guilt free.

where there is a will there is a way.

Hope you are having a good week...stay strong emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

The Fast Food Heist.

Sunday, October 19, 2014



Today I caved.
I came across a commercial for Wendy's BBQ pulled pork sandwich and
a few hours later I found myself in front of the drive thru ordering it.
I was possessed.
The demon of fast food must have hypnotized me.
I confess ... I had sense enough to just order the sandwich...
but I didn't even get out of the car.
I felt like I was buying illegal drugs...{...don't get any ideas...I don't do that...}.

On the upside...it's out of my system...
the taste stayed with me long enough to tell me it wasn't worth it.
On the downside...{...440 calories and a days worth of salt for me...}.

So I'm back to my healthy homemade meals.
hold the mayo, hold the pickles, hold the empty calories.

Tomorrow is the start of a new week. Let's go team emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Eating healtily is all about balance and once in a while this is okay- it's if it becomes daily you need to worry!

    Sometimes you just need .......... (fill in the blank), as long as it is once in a while then it is okay, so please don't be so hard on yourself.

Have a great day

    The calorie count is not that bad on the sandwich compared to many other options, but like you I found it not worth it.

    Creepy! I just saw the commercial for it! Luckly, the nearest Wendy's gets beat out by In-n-Out Burger EVERYtime. It's a California thing!

    It's funny how we are disappointed with food that we used to love and we think we still crave!!! Our bodies know best!!!! Keep up your good habits; all of us fall off the wagon once in a while!!!

    After eating all of your good cooking for so long, your stomach realized that the Wendy's sandwich wasn't as good as you thought it was! What a great learning lesson!!! Love your choice of pics!!! Have a fantastic week ahead Sheryl!

    emoticon Well, I tend to indulge myself with some empty calories in order to not binge, but I do it planning not to go over my calorie range. It has worked better than banning myself from all the 'prohibited' food.

  Hi Sheryl.........
On the upside...........Of all the Fast Food places, Wendy's Menu is one of the healthiest. Their Chili is wonderful and NOT high in calories. Every so often is NOT going to sabotage your program. You are doing much too well for that.

    I like the 80/20 rule - 80% time eat healthy and 20% of the time leaves room for an occasional treat or fast food. When I first started reading about you trying Wendy's BBQ pulled pork I thought, "oh no" as anyone I know who has tried it also said it wasn't worth it LOL! So it's out of your system and it's back to your better home-made healthy meals!!!

    We went to Olive Garden yesterday. I at least saved half my meal to have for lunch at school tomorrow. But when I look at the counts, I think the same thing. It's s-o-o not worth it. But sometimes you just have to get it out of your system.

    I had the Hardee's Texas BBQ Thick Burger a while back - It was awesome but it had enough grease to make me sick for a month. I also tried the Arby's Hawaiian BBQ Brisket - also delicious, also deadly. Sometimes you just have to.

    Why oh why can't they advertise healthy salads!

But glad you're on the road to recovery again. It's HARD!
