We've officially made it another week-whooooooo! I am happy to say that things have gotten easier and we aren't craving sugar as much as we were. I would love to say we're not craving it at all, but you're talking to the queen of cookie cakes and sweet treats. It's going to take a lot more than two weeks to kick my tastebuds into gear, but we are two weeks closer than we were.
One big observation from this past week is how full of fridge is. On the flip side our pantry is practically empty. I guess that's what happens when you're focusing on eating fresher foods and cutting out the stuff that sticks around for months.
How are we feeling? Stinkin' awesome! A sweet friend of ours from Community Group noted how we seemed to be dragging last week and how this week we definitely weren't. I feel like I could run a marathon every day and the mid-afternoon slump I used to feel daily is longggggg gone.
Meal planning and prepping is still going well too. I did learn not to try to make a complicated new recipe on a night David is working late. Thank heavens for ring slings and baby wearing! ;-) Here is what we chowed down on this week:
Sunday-pork chops, apple cider brussel sprouts, cabbage
Monday-buffalo chicken peppers (these were awesome), cauliflower, asparagus
Tuesday-taco salad, roasted garlic broccoli
Wednesday-Italian chicken skillet, kale, spaghetti squash
Thursday-Mexican chili lime soup, zucchini
Friday-steaks, rosemary sweet potatoes, garlic green beans
Saturday-chicken enchilada soup
Lots of yummy flavors and new foods that we will be keeping on the rotation. Many thanks to those who have helped out with recipe options and suggestions-keep 'em coming!
