Real Food!!

Yes, another post today. I am *so excited* to be back to real food! I went to the grocery store today for:

organic skim milk
whole wheat bread
fresh blueberries
organic baby spinach
fresh mushrooms
canned pears
tuna salad cups (80 calories each, great for a protein fix!)
Egg Beaters
Double Fiber English muffins
Carb Balance tortillas
cheese
Gardenburgers
black beans
refried beans
red onion
avocado
canned tomatoes
organic nonfat yogurt

After I got home, my son brought in about 30 fresh, ripe tomatoes from the garden! Guess I didn't need those canned ones after all. Will make some sauce, and buy some fresh mozzarella and fresh basil for caprese stacks tomorrow! Yum. We also got a pepper and a zucchini from the garden. Tomorrow, we'll hit the Farmer's Market for the *real* haul of food!

Dinner tonight: black bean salad. Simple: rinsed, drained black beans, diced tomatoes, chopped avocado, minced red onion, and seasoning, tossed and chilled. Yum!

Doing great, counting calories, feeling wonderful!

Your enthusiasm is infectious! It's wonderful to "want" to be home and to crave healthy food!

Your dinner sounded delicious! I'm jeolous of your garden our veggies in pots certainly didn't thrive this year!

Welcome home, welcome back to feeling good eating and looking in the mirror.

Vacations are awesome, but what's even more awesome is coming back to home sweet home and our familiar surroundings and habits. So glad to hear you've gotten right back into the groove of the healthy eating. What's even more exciting is how much you missed it. :)

There is nothing like being unable to eat healthy fresh produce for a while to make your really appreciate it when you can have it again!

It must have been terrible going without vegetables for all that time. Good to see you're back to your healthy eating!
