It's really hard for me to get started dieting
when I am in the zone
I do really well...but getting to that starting point is the hard part.
I've actually been enjoying coming up with some recipes this time.
It's so hard to make family friendly recipes and figure out all of the ingredients and calories and then divide it all into portions.
I'm really trying to get food made up ahead of time though
so I don't have to figure out all the details and I can grab and go.
I originally made these Jalapeno Poppers in a Cup for me
but Earl loves them.
I've made 2 batches for him already.
They have 234 calories so,
although they are quite tasty,
I still can't eat them very often.
So far my favorite Muffin Tin Food
are these Mexican Taco Cups
These are full of flavor and filling at 355 calories they make a nice lunch or dinner.
Add a salad and I have a nice and filling meal.
So my tip to myself is to make ahead food
and make food that is tasty and filling without a lot of calories.
