Weekends are really hard for me. We generally go out to eat or make more elaborate meals at home or both!
I made my My Fitness Pal food diary public and that has been helping me keep my calories on track and preventing me from ordering food that I shouldn't. For example, we went to lunch at our favorite pizza joint on Sunday and I was all set to order a Spinach and Apple Salad with blue cheese and chicken on it. But then I plugged it into My Fitness Pal and decided to go with the garden salad with dressing on the side because I wanted a glass of wine. A 150 calorie salad instead of a 650 calorie salad!
While we were sitting there, I thought about what Keith had in the smoker back at home. Ribs. I decided that we need to increase our veggie intake (thanks to The Omni Diet book) and we walked across the street to Whole Foods to get something yummy for dinner. I threw together a couple Summer Salads that used my new fresh herbs that I planted a few weeks ago. Click HERE for the recipes.
Both were a big hit with my family but they all really loved the tomato salad! I'll be making that all summer long.
What vegetables are you enjoying this summer?
