Joy of Cooking


Tonight was very productive for me…..lots of cooking. I feel very fulfilled. I’ve been trying to eat low-carb, but it’s hard and boring when all I have at work to eat is a summer sausage and cheddar cheese.

So, I made a food plan for the week, created a shopping list and went grocery shopping at lunch time. Then, I stopped by the CIC to make a salad for Dan for dinner, and then stopped to pick up some eggs and came home and cooked.

For my vegetarian friends, please cover your eyes. Because for me to eat low-carb, it means a lot of meat. I’ve eaten this way before and my body loves it. Carbs and sugars, including sugars from fruits, leaves me tired, lethargic and not able to concentrate.

So, tonight I made bacon, egg salad, deviled eggs and a sausage/egg/cheese breakfast casserole. Tomorrow night I’m going to have to make something chicken in the crockpot just to balance out all the pork and eggs.

As soon as I got home, it was unload groceries, do the dishes, organize some stuff on shelves, clean out the fridge and cook. I miss doing all of this!

I’m also happy because I bought a lot of veggies to add to all of this meat and eggs. Low Carb, low glycemic vegs.

I’m ready for a week of eating and staying on my eating plan!

I also bought new containers for the food, and now the clean fridge is full of food ready to be packed for lunches.

Maybe I can drop this 3 pounds I gained from the potatoes, and fruit and sugar I had over the weekend.
