Time for Low Carbs!!!

Raining Day

Raining Day

Good Day Reader’s!

I keep thinking it is Monday! Does that happen to you when you have a weekday off from work/school? It just throws me off. I had a nice weekend. My Man and I went out to dinner Friday night at King + Duke. This was our second time and we loved it!

The is continuing with his boot camp. He really seems to be liking it and his coach is says he is getting better. I picked him up from his buddy’s house (he had spent the night) and we went to the gym Saturday morning. I went back to the gym on Sunday and walked on the treadmill for an hour while I watched Downton Abby on my iPad. I could have kept going but I had my second appointment with my Dietitian, Alyssa. I am now on a low crab diet for the next month. I thought I would share with you some of the information I am learning in case you are also interested in jump starting some weight loss.

  1. Scramble some eggs and cook them in a large skillet to form a thin “pancake”. Layer your pizza ingredients on top of the eggs and cook in the oven till done. And please use something to protect your hand when you remove the skillet!

  2. I grew up with eggs and chickens and beef that were free ranged. I know that my parents and grandparents had no idea that they were serving something that was good for us. Also ate a lot of fresh vegetables (Honey had a garden). I still like raw vegetable better then cooked. I love hearing what you are fixing for dinner and what you are suppose to eat, gives me ideas. Let us know how it tasted, love lots,lots,lots Momee
