It's almost a total re-do. The tomatoes continued to look so bad that I pulled them out and replanted cherry tomatoes. I still have the peppers and they look ok so far. The big chest is gone and I've added a few more containers. I'm having lots of fun watching everything sprout, but I still don't know if I'll end up getting any food from these plants. We've had lots of rain so I haven't had to water much. Right now everything is looking good.
One of the two avocado seeds that I put in soil doesn't look alive anymore so I'm starting two more seeds. When it comes to fruit trees multiples is key because there's no telling if all of them will make it to maturity.
I've also decided to sprout some sweet potatoes. Right now I have two sweet potatoes in water. Once the slips appear I'll plant them in a couple of large containers.
I'm excited to see what will happen over the next few months.
Here are a few of the items I picked up at the grocery store that will help me stay on plan and not overeat:
Sugar Free Hard Candy - when it's another hour before I go to lunch, one of these helps me push on through. They aren't calorie free, so I only eat one or two a day.
Pioneer Woman Lunch Bag and Drink Canister - If you're going to take your lunch to work, do so in a pretty bag. This is an insulated bag that's cute and practical. It's wipeable and came with the canister. It's like carrying a pretty handbag to lunch. I love it. Walmart carries the Pioneer brand.
Sugar free sweet gherkins - I eat these with salads or wraps or even alone. They taste great and are a guilt free treat.
Sugar free jello. I pre-make enough containers of jello to last the week. This is my after dinner snack. It's very low calorie and filling. Just what I need after dinner when I'm still hungry.
Bacon Bits - Only 25 calories in a tablespoon. Perfect for sala…
It's early; only 3 pm, but I've had my one meal today, and I'm at home for the weekend, here we go. I wanted to have something spectacular for my one meal today. There's something about fasting that changes the way I think about food. I'm not normally someone who cares what I eat. I love food, I love cooking and I love eating. But now that I'm only eating one meal a day I want it to be something that I really like and that will carry me through till the next meal, a day away.
we had some sirloin steaks leftover that my husband grilled a couple of days ago so I knew that would be my main protein. I went to the grocery this morning and bought some big, soft rolls, cookies, two pint containers of whole milk, carrot salad, potato salad, and baked beans.
1/2 avocado mashed up
2-3 oz. sirloin sliced up
I would normally avoid sweets when I'm dieting, but since I'm only eating one meal …
