    A couple food before and after- the first one is vegan chorizo with zucchini and peppers, cucumber tomato salad, and spinach paneer puff pastries the second is an impossible burger and multigrain toast (she got my order wrong but I wasn’t about to complain and ask for it to be fixed)

    I was in the large family that celebrated/soothed everything with food. Sad? Have a cookie you’ll feel better! Good grades? Have some ice cream! Birthday? Don’t forget the cake! Going to a reunion? Make sure you bring the potato salad and pink stuff! Oh someone died? Don’t forget the luncheon and the funeral potatoes and pie. But dinners most week nights were my responsibility after age 10 so we ate a lot of latchkey ability dinners- spaghetti, white people tacos (tortillas, ground beef, shredded cheese, iceberg lettuce and sour cream), and Mac and cheese with peas and tuna mixed in, and potato surprise (mashed potatoes, ground beef, peas, and shredded cheese). Now? I’m still the one cooking even for holidays and such. I don’t regret it but I do make better choices now that I know better…. Most of the time.

    Hear me out- whipped cottage cheese with whatever you want mixed in- I suggest going the fruity route and mixing chopped figs and pecans and a drizzle of honey and freezing first.

    I, too, am always cold 😭 Also, is anyone else eating a ton of cottage cheese (with a variety of toppings) lately?

    I purposefully buy it because im the only one in my house who’ll eat it so I know it’s safe. 😂

    Both! I have some in a mason jar (mostly for bagels and toast) and then about 5lbs on my butter/cream cheese shelf which is up higher where it’s colder.

    First meal of the day at 6pm because I was/am too busy moving around my living room. First picture is the nutrition info with the grams is adjustable by weight but seeing as I didn’t weigh it I just left the original weight listed. The second is about half of what the original size was.

    Woah that is huge! For Americans who aren’t familiar with metric- 800g is roughly 1.75lbs.

    Breakfast and dinner from yesterday. Breakfast- one egg, white bread toast, 1/2 avocado (only ate 1/4 avocado total), water sautéed tomatoes (tbsp of water in pan as the tomatoes start to color and release moisture), and blackberries. Dinner- green beans, mushrooms, onions and tofu in a peanut sauce.

    One last bowl of hospital cafeteria food- tomato soup mixed with corn and bell peppers. Sister was moved to rehab for therapy! Also, thought someone might like these food prep ideas.

    Sorry I’ve been missing but my baby sister had mini strokes on top of sepsis a couple weeks ago and since I speak “medicalese” (per my mother) I took hospital duties which meant a lot of unseasoned soups, green beans and too many coffees and snacks. But now that she’s awake and learning to feed herself again I can step back a bit. (It’s been stressful!) Anyway, todays micro pizza slices (sauce cup for reference- didn’t use) because the restaurant didn’t deliver my salad. 😞

    Spoiler alert- I had a repeat of the same for lunch but with peanut butter and my snack was a piece of bread. This however, is dinner- curried soya chunks with bread because I was too lazy to make rice. Also, just look at this bread! 😍

    The big cheese changes every year. Last year it was a sharp yellow cheddar. They have cheese day where they cut the cheese and have a sampling while packaging it for sale.

    A before and after of the sandwich and salad and then last nights dinner of fish, wasa, and cucumber and sun dried tomato dip.

    Lunch- cucumber sandwich with a parfait of yogurt, peaches, hemp seed, flax seed, raisins, and honey. Dinner- as listed. A whole serving of chicken was 8oz and I knew I couldn’t eat it. The Indian chicken is seasoned with equal amounts cumin, dried ground coriander, turmeric, curry powder(not in recipe), garlic powder(not in recipe), and onion powder, then with salt, pepper, and 1.5tbsp olive oil to coat. I baked thin slices at 400F (200-205C) for about 18 minutes. The original recipe called for pan frying in more olive oil.

    Strangely, I think you’re right. Next time the orange will be in the side.

    The blurry leftover half of my turkey pastrami and cheddar wrap I had for dinner. Would’ve been around 240 calories for the whole thing. But I’m too exhausted to eat any more… and too full of donuts that got dropped off at our unit today.

    More random meals. The chicken salad (from the last picture) also made a repeat into my lunch today.

    Went to a Mexican restaurant by myself yesterday. It’s weird having actual days off and trying to fully my day with stuff to do. Anyway, I present to you this monstrosity! 😂 I totally took home leftovers and actually ate some of them for dinner.

    Yes, but also YES! Kids have had some form of pizza 2 nights in a row (pizza rolls with salad yesterday and chain restaurant pizza tonight) and tomorrow is also looking like a high chance of pizza related food… I will have salad every night if I have to not think about cooking until after new year’s!
