Well not only am I late posting about meat free week I am also cheating a bit on it this week as well. But we'll get to that later. I've had the tummy bug for the past two days and was just blah, it was nice to taste actually food today after not eating since Saturday. Which brings me to another point, if you haven't eaten meat in two weeks a bad idea would be getting a Dairy Queen hot dog on the way to a Mardi Gras parade. Yucko! I had killer indigestion.
My healthy version of an egg McMuffin:
whole wheat english muffin, soy bacon, fat free cheese, and a poached egg (didn't think egg sub would poach well)
Caramel & Chocolate Chex Mix 100 calorie packs (yeah, not so healthy)
leftover bday cake---but it doesn't count (pioneer woman pig cake)
apple & Ritz crackers with peanut butter
Light Yoplait yogurt
Homemade chicken noodle soup
(yes I know I am breaking the meat free law but I had planned veggie soup and I figured my poor tummy couldn't handle that...so I went bland)
whole wheat egg noodles, 1/2 lb organic chicken, 2 qrts chicken stock, 4 carrots sliced, 4 celery stalks sliced, onion chopped, dill, pepper, parsley, garlic, 2 bay leaves--and now that I am feeling better I have been adding cajun seasoning to my super bland soup.
Don't judge I needed the protein this week after feeling like junk. Oh, and don't judge next week either...I won't be man free(yay), but I'll still post what we are eating.
On another note.
Want to know down side of Spring?
My pups are stopping to smell every single flower bud as we walk...as if they didn't get distracted when walking easy enough.
