This was not a big loss, but still a loss. I can feel the lazies have not gone away. As long as I get my minimum of 11k steps a day I'll consider the day a success.
Waffles seem like a good choice for Sunday morning. I do miss having them with a little butter. I suppose I could have a teaspoon on each waffle. For now I'll stick with my syrup-free syrup. I heated 2 slices of Canadian bacon (ham) and served that with my waffles. I added one little tomato to the plate so the meal was not devoid of something fresh, vegetable-wise.
After breakfast I trotted (well, walked) down to the local farmer's market. I purchased a mixed bag of baby kale and baby arugula (organic). I love arugula with a little olive oil, fresh lemon, and a sprinkling of salt. I look forward to having that later today.
I'm back to my traditional Dr. Keith's Chocolate Cream protein shake. I'm getting used to having my massive blender back out on the counter every day. It's a monster but it sure works well.
I have to admit I opened up this Nutrisystem White Bean and Chicken Chili and raised an eyebrow thinking "oh my; this does not look good". I heated the chili in my microwave according to the package instructions. I removed the plastic lid and gave it a stir. Still skeptical I poured the thick soup into my bowl. It looked like a combination of baby food and Mexican Queso Fundido. The mixture was thick but I could distinguish white beans, and little bits of red and green that I guessed to be peppers of some sort. Bravely, I dug my spoon in and tasted it, tentatively. To my surprise it tasted pretty good! It even had a little "heat" from the chiles which I really liked. So this little soup was surprisingly good once you just get past the appearance. The only vegetables I had handy were some little tomatoes I picked earlier today so I served those with a tablespoon of my Bolthouse Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese dressing. The soup turned out to be both flavorful and nicely filling.
I'm not sure where today went but it was past snack time before I even realized it. I dove into the depths of my refrigerator deli-drawer and found those Frigo Mozzarella String cheese strips. I wasn't overly hungry so I slid off the wrapper of one stick then tore off long strands of cheese and mindlessly ate them as I watched TV.
I still had two eggplants in the vegetable bin so I figured I better bake another one. I really should have watched one less murder mystery and spent some time looking for a new eggplant recipe. I'm happy with being a creature of habit so I sliced it up and prepped it for the oven.
My entree this evening is another repeat; the Nutrisystem Stuffed Shells. While eating these for the second time now I realized what I like about them which is the sauce. The filling of the shells is pretty nondescript; spinach, a low or non-fat cheese and probably a filler of some sort. The pasta as I described before is actually "al dente" rather than the typical soggy pasta in most the "diet" meals. It still is one of the better pasta meals I've tried on this plan.
I wanted to try some of the baby arugula and baby kale I purchased earlier today at the Farmer's Market. I tossed a handful of greens with a little kosher salt and about a teaspoon of olive oil. Sadly I was out of fresh lemons and I didn't want to disturb the neighbor to borrow one. I halved a few of my little orange tomatoes and sidled them up around the greens. That's a salad to me!
Dinner with the eggplant, pasta and salad was pretty filling but with the temperature almost at 98F after dinner an ice cream sounded good. I had one of my favorites again, the Nutrisystem Orange Cream Bar. That always hits the spot.
After dinner and dessert I decided another walk was in order so I could get my 11k steps in. A stroll after dinner is always nice. It makes me feel less slothful. This Sunday was certainly my day of rest which capped off my weekend of rest. When it's this hot out yard work is not an option. Well, that was my excuse at least. The few things I accomplished were good enough for me. Let's see what the new week brings.
