Anyone know what THAT quote is from???
Well I don't know about anyone else, but I have been feeling quite sluggish, lethargic, and overall crappy. Why you say? Hmmm.... just take a look at my Valentine's Day post and you'll see why! I ate all that crapola! Plus Chinese food always does a number on my system. T-M-I I know! So what is my game plan for taking back my energy and oveall well being? I'm gonna be eating clean for a few days, see what that does to my bod. Hopefully I get a hot bod out of this......
Nah, I'm not expecting miracles.
Just reduce the bloating nasty queasey feeling I get all the time.
When I was in the grocery store the other day I saw this magazine..
I tell you it was the stir fry that drew me in. I haven't had that dish in AGES! Plus I saw the price of the meal $1.62 per serving? You know my cheap ass grabbed that up and paid... $5.99 for the mag. Ugh.
I poured over the magazine half the night and picked out a few recipes that I knew I had the ingredients for, and even a few I would have had to buy some stuff for. The thing I liked about this magazine is, it wasn't vegetarian/vegan and didn't try and shove the "clean eating" down my throat. Every recipe has only a few ingredients and only a couple of them, I would not be able to substitute out dairy free stuff. Excellent! I think I will be ordering this one!
So what recipe did I make first? Well I totally thought of Miss Jenny on this one- (aren't I supposed to be eating clean!?)
But I had to go out and buy some stuff! Thank God for tax money! The recipe called for sucanet. I could not find any sucanet in my store! But I did find antural cane sugar, which, smells like stinky feet. No lie! I was really off-put by the smell, but I used it anyway.
In went some chocolate chunks as well. Dark organic chocolate is naturally dairy free and although it has a stronger taste eaten plain, cooked and in something, I love it!
turned into these....
Holy deliciousness! These were incredible!
So what else do I have up my sleeve for clean eating? Lots of this grain:
Quinoa.. mixed with this.. red and green fresh peppers sauteed in marinara sauce and herbs (basil, parsley, pepper, oregano)
I didn't take a picture of the end result, but hey, it was pretty darn good if I do say so myself!
And for my final picture....
Here is my real Valentine's Day present. Presented to you by Uncle Same. If I had not had a tax refund this year.. I would not be wearing this... lol C picked it out and when we did our taxes earlier this month, I upgraded my other ring. I can't wait to show it to him!
