I can’t believe it’s Wednesday again! Time is flying by. In the world of food not much has changed. We are still cutting back (never out) on the carbs and loading up on veggies to help Michael lose weight. I’ve been really impressed with Michael’s dedication to eating healthy. Even when we are choosing restaurants Michael opts for restaurants that have healthier options on the menu.
In other food news, our house has been struck by the stomach bug. Michael’s been down and out for 2 days. White bread and ginger-ale are all that’s cutting it. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I escape this round and am hoping Michael feels better soon…it kind of stinks to cook, eat and clean up all on your own! I’ve definitely been making quick and easy meals for dinner since it’s just me.
Frozen waffles are always in our freezer. They taste good and are so versatile. Some mornings I’ll toast a couple of waffles and put peanut butter and bananas on top. Other days I make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with waffles. And sometimes they just taste good with maple syrup on top.
I’ve been obsessed with coconut macaroon coffee with coconut milk. It’s just so delicious!
There has been a lot of variety in my lunches lately. Today I have a chicken sandwich with swiss cheese, lettuce and mustard. On the side I had some coleslaw, carrots and hommus, and an orange. For a snack I brought strawberries and blueberries, yogurt and nuts.
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day we made corned beef for reubens. We bought marble rye bread, sauerkraut, thousand island dressing and swiss cheese and grilled the sandwiches on our panini press. On the side we had homemade coleslaw, and potato chips. It will simple but so delicious!
For a quick and easy dinner this week I made a “doctored” Mac and Cheese. I added chicken, broccoli and parmesan cheese on top. It came together so quickly and tasted delicious.
Fun fact, I’m not drinking dairy milk so have been using coconut milk instead. I used it to make the mac and cheese and it didn’t alter the taste at all!
