Food-wise my choices haven't been super this past week. Had some hot chocolate from a Tim Hortons and regretted it later. Let's call it digestive distress. Not sure if it was the lactose or the large amounts of sugar or a combo of the two. Never again. I can make better tasting and better quality warm drinks at home: Coffee with freshly ground organic beans, or a cup of tea brewed from loose leaves (yep, organic too).
Looking over my food journals and MyFitnessPal on Sunday, I noticed a bad trend; I've been turning more toward sugar and bready carbs to help "feel" warm. So I went to the store and stocked up on some good stuff and did some food prep for the week:
-Made some chili with variety of beans and ground chicken instead of beef.
-Roasted a chicken with a bunch of root vegetables; carrots, potatoes, parsnips, onions and a ton of garlic.
-From the chicken bones, made some stock and made a pot of chicken soup and also made a butternut squash soup.
There were some nice Medjool dates, oranges and grapefruit on sale, so far they are filling that craving for some sweetness.
Leaving you with a fave song by James Brown that makes me get off my couch!
