What I Ate In One Week, Part I

There was something about getting my craft desk clean and organized last week that helped me get organized in other areas of my life.  I’ve been trying to be better about weighing and logging my food because it helps me to stick to healthier choices when I eat.

I decided to take a photo of everything I ate in one week and post it here.  I started on Monday morning, April 8.

    Diane,
    My mouth is watering right now. Wish you were my personal chef!

  4. haven’t had black bean soup since I was little…will have to try soon…Some interesting dishes…but, looks good …and healthy!

    • It’s yummy – and I enjoyed it with the dollop of Greek yogurt. Although, I have to be honest, I would have enjoyed sour cream even more!

      • oh no…I was going to use sour cream…
        and I think I still will…maybe low fat or fat free…

      • Glad your DIL’s mom liked my blog 🙂 That is always nice to hear. As for sour cream…I actually prefer the Greek yogure over the nonfat sour cream but the good sour cream, you know, the full fat yummy kind? I love that. My tendency is to spoon several bites into my mouth for one I dollop onto the bean soup or potato or whatever. But if you have better willpower and can keep it around without scarfing it down, than good for you! The low fat sour cream isn’t bad.

      • I’m defiinitely getting or making the black bean soup…
