I wish I had more food from home to post here, but I don't. I've been busy cooking up a storm at work.. but before I talk about that, I want to thank you all for the lovely support for my last several posts.
Since then, I have banished the scale, which has been amazing. I am trying to just LIVE my life the way I know how to do it when I'm active and working. That worked very well for me in the past... I have decided not to weigh myself for a while.. I don't have a date in mind for the next weigh in.. BUT... I am trying on clothes and having accountability that way. I can say with assurance that I am a tiny bit smaller that I was when I wrote the last post. It feels very freeing to not be a slave to the scale... and don't get me wrong.. the scale worked very WELL for me for a long time... but the health issues I've had have created a new thing to deal with...
I'm just so happy that I am starting to really feel like my old self again.. healthy and strong.... and working cooking awesome vegetarian and vegan food!...
....but when I cook all day for work, I have no desire to cook at home. I literally hate the way my food smells and tastes. All I want to do is eat peanut butter and jelly rice cakes with almond milk..... it's a challenge for sure because I want to be healthy.
Here's a peak at some of the food I create at work... pics are taken with my phone in REALLY bad lighting...!
Gluten Free, Vegan Eggplant 'Parm'
Roasted Mushroom, Red Pepper, Basil and Goat Cheese Risotto
Sugar Snap Peas with Portobello, Red Pepper and Smoked Almonds
Spicy Noodles (vegan, gluten free)
Stratta with Caramelized Onions, Kale and Provolone
BBQ Tempeh, Brown Rice, Kale, Sweet Potatoes
This is just a sample of what I've been cooking.... and while I LOVE creating amazing food for work, I just am sick of it at home... and am not sure what to do change that... I do cook in big batches still and freeze portions which helps... but I'd love to know what YOU do if you are in a rut or especially, if you cook all day for work!
