Oh my gosh, dinner was amazeballs tonight. Seriously delicious. I found this recipe on pinterest, and can’t wait to make it again and again! It will definitely be a staple in our house. The only changes I made were switching out kale for spinach and adding a bit more coconut milk during the cooking process. It had so much flavor and it was VERY filling. Two hours later and I am still stuffed. And it wasn’t that hard to make. Just perfect.
Overall, I had a good day today. We went to the movies and I had oreos. Yes, they are vegan folks. I probably should have never found that out but now that I do I’m sort of glad. The movies is just a place you are supposed to be bad. I also had a diet coke but I will NOT be doing that again. I haven’t had one in awhile, but in some of the videos I had watched on Netflix they talked about the dangers of diet sodas. I noticed pressure in my head after drinking it, sort of like a tightness in my forehead, and realized I used to feel that all the time when I was a diet soda drinker regularly. So, not again. I definitely didn’t miss that feeling.
After the movies I went grocery shopping for my weekly list- spent $66 which isn’t that bad if I do say so myself, especially considering healthy food is supposed to be so much more expensive. I bought a lot of the bulk items at Sprouts, such as dispensing out my own spices and flours, and because of that my bill was a lot cheaper because I only paid for what I needed. I will definitely make that a habit in the future.
My menu today was as follows:
Breakfast- cereal with coconut milk and banana
Lunch- Rice and Beans
Snack- oreos (6 pack, 270 calories) and diet soda
Dinner- Indian Masala
Dessert- Harvest Breakfast Cookies.
The cookies were such a treat and SO healthy! No sugar, no gluten, no dairy, no egg. Just naturally sweet from fruit. I made a large batch so we will be eating off of these little goodies all week.
Well, calling it a night! xoxo
