What is it about being snowed in that causes such bad eating habits?  Or is it just me?  I’ve been doing so well on our clean-eating plan, and not feeling at all like I’m missing out on anything.  However, this snowstorm has made the likes of zoodles, apples and salad sound very unappealing.  Only a cheese ravioli and meatball bake was going to satisfy my cravings tonight.  But I DID add broccoli.  That makes it a health food, right? (wink, wink)



OK, so back on the wagon starting tomorrow.

Disclaimer:  The recipes that I have provided links to are for reference.  I will make changes to them to make them fit my eating plan.

I’m excited about this menu (excited as only a food nerd can be).  So hopefully it won’t be that hard.  I’m committed! I’m motivated! I’m going to do a great job this week!

. . . right after I finish this glass of wine and bowl of icecream. 🙂
