here we go again. after the gluttony of the holidays (hello, christmas day cheese-stravaganza with cookie buffet!) my body is begging for a week or two of clean food. i’m looking forward to trying some new recipes (pulled chicken, quinoa tortillas, & lighter sesame chicken (with some alterations) to name a few). mr. happy stuff isn’t really interested in going through this whole-heartedly again (he’ll eat my lunch-meals for his supper-meals as long as they’re somewhat palatable) and i have a cold (rendering me without a sense of smell. can’t decide if that’s a blessing or not. my food today all had pleasant texture, but i can’t really speak to how it tasted) so we’ll see how many weeks i last. if anyone wants to join me, i’m happy to send links to my menu plans. today was a bit haphazard as i had to work and wasn’t particularly prepared yet, but i ate mostly clean (except for 2 bananas, pork casings on my chicken sausages (really? why would they do that?!), potato starch in some rice crackers i pounded before my supper smoothie because i was that hungry, and one piece of milk chocolate covered macadamia nuts that a co-worker brought from her trip to hawaii (mostly because i wished i had gone to hawaii. eating the chocolate was decidedly not a good substitute). i don’t know that i’ll post daily updates on my food (unless some dear reader really wants to see more photos of smoothies!), but if i discover any new fantastic favorite recipes, i’ll share them with you. my current new favorite thing to add to smoothies is fresh nutmeg. mmm…..
i have a few more new year’s treats planned for you. let’s see if i can be organized enough to post them before february, m’kay?
