Happy Healthy Monday
Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! My week flew by. Is anyone else finding that to be the case?
Well in 21 days my son will turn 4. See time just flies. I can’t believe he will be 4. His theme this year is all things Veggie Tales. He cake will be Larry Boy from the show but can you beleive I can’t find a Veggie Tale pinata anywhere. If I was crafy I would make one. I think I am going to have to order supplies online because I can’t find plates and such in stores. I guess i should have made sure I got stuff before selecting a theme. So I pray I can find some stuff to make is a hit.
Okay so this week I managed to lose 2 lbs. Yeah me! All I am really doing is watching portions and trying to eat better foods. I still do snacking on some not so great foods but I don’t binge on them. I think not over thinking this whole thing has really helped. Also I have been reviewing some great healthy snacks. Check out my giveaways. They are all so yummy.
My friend Chef Jeff puts out a newsletter, which everyone should get, and with each one is a recipe. Here is one. Enjoy!
BBQ Sloppy Joes
This is how they eat them in the South! Not really, I just modeled
it after a typical North Carolina BBQ Pork Sandwich.
Cook time: 15 minutes
2 cups chopped Cabbage
1/4 cup Mayonnaise, reduced fat
1 tablespoon Vinegar
1/4 cup Sugar
1 pound Ground Beef reduced fat
1/2 cup Barbecue Sauce
4 Whole Wheat Hamburger Roll
Mix the cabbage, mayonnaise, vinegar, and sugar, and set aside in
the fridge. Meanwhile Brown the beef in a nonstick skillet; add the
BBq sauce and simmer for a minute or two. Spoon the BBq beef on the
buns and top with the coleslaw.
