I pledged to go sugar-free today and I have to say, I did pretty well! The odds were stacked against me because my office is PACKED with sweets and treats and it was really hard to resist, but I did it. I caved for a minute at around 7:00 tonight and had two bites of an ice cream sandwich, but then I put it away and stopped eating it. Go me!
Here’s what I ate today:
Breakfast – Two slices whole wheat bread with natural peanut butter and banana; plain hot tea (blech)
Lunch – Kale salad (which did have a bit of honey in it) and frozen fruit
Snack – Two fruit leathers made with fruit juices instead of sugar
Dessert – Two bites of an ice cream sandwich (I’m only human, after all)
I think I want to try again tomorrow. Who’s with me???
While you’re thinking about it, here are the features from last week.
Such beautiful colors! It’s like the most amazing hodgepodge of vegetables and makes me want to sit down with an enormous platter of these veggies and a fork and just dig in.
One of my favorite appetizers at restaurants, but oh so terrible for you. This version is lighter and healthier, but sounds just as delicious.
I love all three of these things, so why wouldn’t I love them together? I think the only thing I would change would be to make the top crunchy somehow. Panko? Regardless, it sounds really good!
This week’s party has huge shoes to fill because last week was the biggest Tastetastic Thursday yet! Thank you all for coming back every week and inspiring me and others to keep cooking.
Who’s ready to party? The rules are simple:
- Please link up no more than two recipes.
- I’d love it if you’d follow me on Facebook and/or Google Friend Connect.
- Please have a link back to me on your post. I’ll be featuring three links next week, but I can only feature you if there’s a link back.
- Click around, have some fun, and get inspired!
(As always, the links show up in random order. No rewards for the early birds, or punishments for those who get there a little later.)
