So, I'm back on the pre-wedding "diet" and kicking all of the white stuff out of my mouth. No more tortillas, bread, pasta, crackers, chips, cookies, or anything else that is white, soft, gooe-y and fattening.
It worked last year, and I need to give it another go. My first goal is to go cold-turkey until I'm back in Chicago over Labor Day.
Until then, I'm going to try and keep a tight record here, and at home, of my meals and choices so that I can come back and look at these posts when I feel like I'm in a slump.
This week, dinners will be as follows:
Monday - Chicken Kale Ceaser
I make this salad every week. It's cooked chicken, fresh kale, crushed pecans, quinoa, avocado and Parmesan cheese w/ ceaser dressing.
Tuesday -Stuffed Peppers
Wednesday - Chicken Fajitas (no tortillas for me)
Friday - Cauliflower Pizza
Saturday - Grilled Brats (no bun for me) and Cucumber Salad
Giving up carbs works for me, because while it's not fun, I don't feel like too deprived. I can swap carbs with something equally as delicious. I love crackers and cheese, but almonds and cheese do the trick too....so little swaps like that really help me me not feel like I'm "dieting".
