This week I’ve been going with the flow when it comes to food. If I’m craving veggies than I’ll eat more veggies, if I’m craving protein well then I’ve been having a protein shake. Going with the flow seems to make sense because Michael is trying to lose weight and is adjusting his diet. We cut out milk and have switched to soy, rice and almond milk. Michael started to cut out carbs this week so I’ll be going with the flow on this too. I know I need carbs to be part of my diet but I do think I could stand to cut back a bit so we’ll see how the balance on this comes about. I’ve also been craving more protein lately so I’ve started drinking protein shakes. I’ve never been into these so I’m excited about this new addition to my diet. I am loving that Michael’s a bit more into the veggies lately, I love going to the store and picking out yummy greens and having more veggies with my dinner!
I’ve been loving eggs with truffle oil. My favorite has been fried eggs with truffle oil, cheddar cheese on toasted italian bread. It’s so good with fresh strawberries and a cup of coffee.
Such a good way to start the day!
This week we are mixing it up with chicken wraps and roasted tomato basil soup. For snacks I’ve been having an apple, almonds, berries and pretzels. It’s been delicious!
The roasted tomato basil soup is a new recipe that Michael made over the weekend and it’s absolutely delicious. I haven’t had tomato soup in a while so this hit the spot!
On Monday I had a protein shake for lunch. I was home from work and wasn’t quite hungry for a big lunch. I blended the protein powder, soy milk, ice and a tablespoon of peanut butter. It was so good and tasted like a milkshake! I never like protein shakes but this one was the best I’ve ever had. A woman at work recommended it and gave me some samples, I think I’ll be ordering this and having one more regularly!
Last week Michael and I decide to switch up our seafood meal, so we made baked stuff shrimp. We made homemade crabmeat stuffing with Ritz Crackers and baked the shrimp in the oven. On the side we had rice pilaf and broccoli rabe. It was really good!
I had a glass of wine with it and it was the perfect Thursday night!
Many thanks to Jen over at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW party every week!
