Why I'm Maintaing My Weight and not Losing Weight (and I'm ok with it)

Vietnamese style rice noodle salad with seitan (btw, autocorrect wanted me to correct seitan to satan, Could it be...SATAN?), lettuce, carrots, ginger soy dressing and cilantro
The whole fam damnily LOVED it

Spinach mushroom pizza, always pretty darn good

Herb crusted pork loin with globe artichokes and baked sweet potato fries

Spinach and baby green salad with strawberries, goat cheese, walnuts and balsamic vinaigrette. So refreshing on an almost 100 degree day

Whole wheat dough for soon-to-be homemade ravioli- update tomorrow

Music man did not approve this photo! ;)
This is my make-do-with-what-you-got dinner from tonight. Dr Praeger's veggie burgers on gf buns (best ever, better than the regular, I threw away the packaging  but I'll let you know next time I buy them) with baked sweet potato fries, baked zucchini fries (I couldn't choose between the two) and snappy-sweet corn on the cob...Great make-do dinner!

Little Man seal of approval

...and the piece de resistance

Homemade vegan peanut butter ice cream and vegan strawberry-banana sherbet. The peanut butter was amazing, you couldn't even tell it was dairy free it was so rich and delicious. The straw-ban was tasty as well but couldn't possibly compare to the peanut butter. But when eaten together, hoo boy, tasted exactly like a pb&j with sliced banana. Bonus- both were both low sugar with the substitution of agave nectar. Buying an ice cream maker was a dangerous decision but so far, so so worth it.

And that's not all, folks. On a basic day I eat a ton of snacks; definitely a 3 meal 2 -3 snack person. My go to snacks are scoops of pb straight from the jar, hummus on almost anything, popcorn, BEEEEEEP ****This Post has Been Interrupted by a PB Ice Cream Break**** Greek yogurt, a pint of strawberries eaten in front of the fridge with the door open, and (hanging my head) sometimes I sneak Twizzlers for the car ride home from the store.

Maybe this post should be titled This Is Why I Work Out.

  1. Everything looks DELICIOUS!!! I am very serious about wanting you to cook dinner for me every night :) I'll definitely need your dairy free recipes for the ice-cream!
