Foodie Friday

Last week I was sick, and barely ate anything, but this week, I've been enjoying real food again! I've been sticking to my plan for the most part, but there has been maybe a bit too much sugar. I went to Sam's on Tuesday, and instead of getting my usual 2 pounds of plain pecans (they last for at least 2 months!), I decided to buy these:

Because they are so small, and taste sooo good, I usually eat two servings at a time for snack. It's only once a day, but I should limit it to one serving.

That's about all I've been snacking on this week.

For breakfast twice this week, I've had my strawberry banana smoothie. It's very simple, four ingredients. Frozen strawberries, a small banana, tablespoon of turbinado sugar, and unsweetened vanilla almond milk. And lots of ice of course. It's a great way to get in some fruit in the morning.

My lunches have consisted of salads. I also bought a 2 pound bag of Romaine lettuce at Sam's to be used up by March the 6th and some DELICIOUS grape tomatoes. So I've been making Caesar salads for lunch with the Jack Daniels chicken strips, lettuce, Parmesan, and tomatoes.

Between the salad and smoothie, I hit my 5 fruit/veggie servings daily goal every day!

My dinners have varied this week. Monday night's dinner was Jack Daniels steak strips, tri color peppers, baby bella mushrooms, sour cream, and white corn and black bean salsa.

My guacamole expired, so that was left off :(

Last night, my husband grilled pork chops on the George Foreman grill. I used Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper to season mine. It was my first time using it, and it was really good. The rest of the family had mashed potatoes, but I paired my pork chop with broccoli and cheese and grape tomatoes. Yum!

Just a sampling of what I've been eating this week as I'm feeling better!
