Yeah...I know...oh look a diet post.
I don't want to diet I want to be healthier and feel better.
At some points in my life I have been a vegetarian.
I have to admit I usually feel better
and lose weight quicker
when I am.
SO.... January first I got simpler
and figured I'd get back to the treadmill.
You know the treadmill I hid
the key to so the kids wouldn't break it?
...The key I put in a "special place"?....
Well I must have stuffed it into a pork roast
and eaten it because a week of searching brought no results
except me crying on my beans in frustration.
Ordered new key.
(which cost less then the actual postage to send it here!)
Walking around here is hell with snow
piled on the side of the road and no sidewalks.
Today was my first day and I did 45 minutes
and didn't expire.......yet.
I am thinking of painting the tread to look like bacon....
I made myself some chickpea salad
and toasted up a pita!
In case you are looking for a new recipe.
2 15.5oz ounce cans of chick peas rinsed
2 large stalks celery finely diced
1/2 orange pepper finely diced
8 cherry tomatos quartered
1 cup finely chopped parsley
1/2 cup finely chopped mint
1/4 finely diced red onion
1/2 Lemon, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, garlic to taste
Mix first seven ingredients together
mix and add seasonings
Easy peasy toast a pita or flat bread and cut into wedges.
Stores nicely in the fridge
so you can scoop a bit out when you need it.
A can of solid white tuna can be added too!
My problem is boredom and food...
they make chocolate covered
bacon filled bread bowls
What's your evil nemesis?
Happy Tuesday! Patty
