Is the egg in this pudding...cooked? (skwigg asks dumbly and fearfully LOL)
I recently became addicted to sweet potato fries with spicy chipotle seasoning. Yum!
Today I had Cheerios and almond milk for breakfast, sun dried tomato & feta dip on Kashi crackers for lunch with a chocolate chip cookie for dessert. Probably something exciting like a turkey sandwich and Sun Chips for dinner with a bonus chocolate chip cookie. That's been my boring totally happy pattern the last few days. I still have an annoying inner dialogue about what I "should" eat. It goes something like "There are only 5 grams of protein in your breakfast. You need more protein than that. Where are the green vegetables? No fruit at all today? How can you eat that feta stuff when it doesn't have a nutrition label? It could be a bazillion calories per tablespoon and you wouldn't even know it. Blah, blah, blah, blah, BLAH..."
I'm becoming fairly skilled at ignoring my inner jibbering and eating what I'm actually hungry for instead of following external rules. I know that I have several BIG protein meals per week, green drinks, berry smoothies, veggie omelets, healthy fats. It all works out over time but that nutrition cult programing is hard to turn off.
I baked myself cookies because I was jealous of the dog's homemade treats. I kept seeing what looked like peanut butter cookies on the counter but they were dog biscuits. Bleh! So, I made some real cookies. I also adore the sun dried tomato & feta stuff from the grocery store deli. It is SPICY and it absolutely reeks of garlic and stinky cheese. My husband is repelled by it. LOL But it's something I crave. It's like a Greek pizza in a tub, really good on the Kashi Bruschetta crackers.
