Salads and proteins are my new go to partners in crime.
Colourful meals that could come from a spa are finding their way into the Humble Bungalow
a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.
look at the colours!
Romaine and red lettuces, red onions, radishes, yellow peppers, black olives, tomatoes, and shredded carrots.
There's lots of chewing involved so it takes longer to eat
add some lean chicken or steak
(about 3 ounces)
a small amount of dressing for added flavour
and lunch or dinner is ready.
Rebar basil vinaigrette
I made a batch and keep it in the fridge for a few days and use it sparingly...
olive oil is the base with lots of spices and basil leaves
it is delicious.
I am avoiding bread
although I did have two slices last evening with my bowl
of vegetable beef and bean soup.
No hunger pangs after dinner.
I have also been moderating the amount of wine I am consuming.
Funny that I could convince myself that a liquid could be calorie and sugar free!
Yesterday afternoon when I walked home from work the sound of dueling chainsaws could be heard before I rounded the corner and saw the chipper truck.
Our tree is gone...
the large acacia tree was felled in the garden yesterday
so after work
we were dong some clean up
and Mr. HB stacked wood!
I did not get a long walk in but I did get a work out in the garden.
Thank you for all your emails of support
on my recent post about the frustration of post menopausal weight loss.
They really mean a lot to me.
While life may not always be rosy
you can always grow roses!
