I'm making a somewhat odd resolution to eat out more. I just won't eat vegetables prepared at home. It's the weirdest thing and I don't get it. I'm getting really frustrated about it, however, so my goal is to have lunch out a few times a week at one of our amazing local foodie places that have amazing salads and such.
yesterday was sort of terrible, at least at the end:
Decaf latte for breakfast (had morning meeting... blech)
tuna melt on wheat foccacia and side salad with balsamic for lunch
Worked out and let myself get WAY too hungry before dinner, so by the time we ordered at the restaurant all I wanted was fat.
Chicken pot pie (homemade and delicious, but pure cream) and then chocolate almond frozen custard on the way home.
needless to say, I had horrible indigestion all night long after eating essentially full fat dairy for my entire dinner meal. Sigh.
Today has been much better:
2 eggs with multigrain toast for breakfast
latte (2% milk)
Big goat cheese salad with side of gingered carrots (these were amazing.... I can't even deal with how much I loved them)
Dinner will be leftover potpie and fruit
I'm going to start buying sliced fruit from our local grocery (they have a wonderful selection of fresh sliced mango, watermelon, and so on) and then eating large salads for lunches a few times a week. I don't know why I can't do this at home, but I can't. And we can probably afford to do this until our CSA starts in early June.
