I have been cooking like crazy trying to get some tried and true vegetarian recipes in my personal cookbook. So far everything has been a major success. I will be doing some rapid fire blogging very soon and posting all the recipes.
Even though I am in the middle of painting my cupboards and remodeling my kitchen....which means my kitchen resembles some of the deepest levels of Dante's Inferno...."Abandon all hope ye who enter here"
I have still managed to get in there and work around wet paint and rollers to make sure I stick to my healthy way of eating. I am loving this Mediterranean Diet and if the scale loves it on Saturday (my weigh in day) then I will be in heaven! I mean really, take a look at my lunch from yesterday.
No, it's not Chobani Yogurt. My mom uses old food containers for Tupperware. I like to think it's because she is thrifty and eco-friendly rather than fairly confident that I won't ever return her containers. Which, despite every good intention I never do. Anyways, what you see is actually Butternut Squash Bisque with a whole wheat pita and glass of red wine. So satisfying! I got a set of those wine glasses at the thrift store for $1.99 each. Turns out they are really high quality crystal. Score!
Hubs and I usually start our meal with a hummus appetizer with whole wheat pita.
(Hummus with olive oil and walnuts sprinkled on top.)
Some other tasty treats I have made are....
Black Bean Burgers
I have been eating so good! The best part is that my jeans even feel loser and it's only been a few days. They are buttoned right now WITHOUT the aid of a rubber band. I am making progress people!
