Tonights eats

I rarely post what I eat on my blog.

I do this because I quite frankly don't want to hear comments from the peanut gallery. Once upon a time I posted here and there and I was told that X was to heavy of a meat and I should eat Y and Z. I am to lazy to go look up the exact comment but it was something to that effect. I *know* they were trying to be helpful. It still urked me though. (just being honest)

I don't follow one specific diet per say. I do my own thing with a combo of diets. I borrow and tweak from them what works best for me.  I can tell you that my main influences are low carb/primal/whole foods. Most dinners are just a boring meal of protein and veggies.

Occasionally I get a little creative. Tonight was a creative meal. Hubby will not be thrilled as there is kale in dinner but he will just have to live with it. LOL

Unless he wants to make himself a sammy he has no choice actually. Muahah  It is ground turkey, juice from the cooked kale below, splash of balsamic, splash of soy sauce, 3 cups or so of kale, 1.5 chopped onion, 1 tub of concentrated veggie stock (all I had), salt, pepper, garlic, and water.

His will be served over rice. I already ate mine straight with a chopped avocado mixed in. YUM! (pic is leftovers)

 I also googled kale and bacon and found a recipe for umm kale and bacon. Har, har  I did my own thing though and changed it up a little. Regular (pre-chopped/washed) kale/basalmic/ and way more (shouting) BACON.  Hubby won't touch this with a ten foot pole.

More for me!!

For me a very important part of this whole dieting thing is....... to eat what I like!  I like veggies.  I just have spent a lot of my life forgetting that. Now I am spending a large amount of time remembering that. I am not going to shove something down that I don't like just because it is healthy.

 I make sure to eat veggies that I like and prepare them a way that I like.

When I am floundering and possibly craving something I shouldn't I will stop on the way home pick up some green zucchini/asparagus/sweet taters/various squashes. I replace the wanties with something that I can have that is completely on plan for me. I haven't done it in a while but several meals were teriyaki salmon those first 90 days as both hubby and I adore it. Who wants ice cream when you can have such a delicious satisfying and filling meal?

Currently I am listening to the NERF Cyber Hoop. I am a Bzzagent and received this item free for my boys to play with and me to review.  I have to say they both adore it! Daddy even gets in on the action and tries to steal the ball. Silly Daddy!  Here is a coupon  in case it is something that might interest your kiddos.

*****FL PEEPS!
If your in the FL area and have a WinnDixie near I want to point out a faboo deal they are having this week. I think it might be unadvertised because I cannot find it in the flyer. Ground turkey is normally $3.99 a pound. Currently there are BOGO stickers AND .75 off coupons on each package. That makes them two for $2.49!!  AWESOME deal!!


  1. OMG! I also got the APB (all points bulletin)today and had kale. Coincidence? I think not.
