Healthy and High Protein and Delicious Recipes? Yeah, We Love Those!

Healthy and High Protein and Delicious Recipes? Yeah, We Love Those!

If you know me,  you know I love good food. I’m also a big fan of recipes that are high in protein. I enjoy cooking, and my friend, Elaine, does too, so I invited her to share a post on my blog today. I’ve known Elaine for about a year and a half, and throughout that time I’ve watched her consistently work toward being healthy and strong, and she has more self-discipline in eating and exercise than anyone else I know. We’re different in some ways, but we love some of the same things as well. I’m so thankful to have a friend like her, and I’m also excited about sharing this recipe with you today. Here’s what Elaine had to say about her recipe: “This recipe uses a great new brand of pasta called Banza. Instead of pasta made from wheat flour, Banza is made from chickpea flour. This gives the pasta a lot more fiber and protein than usual pasta. The pasta is slightly chewier than regular wheat pasta, but it’s still great. The added nutritional value is worth the small difference in texture. Thanks to the combination of the Banza pasta, tuna, and reduced fat cheese, this […]

How Much Do You Spend on Groceries Per Month?

How Much Do You Spend on Groceries Per Month?

Michael is already good at making budget plans, and he even has the discipline to see them through. I’ve grown leaps and bounds in that area over the last few months, which seemed impossible until I asked God to change my heart regarding money. Now I feel satisfied and excited about the opportunity to become a budgeting guru. (Okay, guru might be a stretch, but I’m definitely on my way to being good at it.) I started tracking the amount that we spend on groceries last month, and we typically spend a few hundred dollars. I eat out significantly less now that I have the option to eat at home most days, but I’m not sure how that will affect the grocery budget yet. (I do know that it will be good though.) We both eat smaller portions than we used to, but I don’t usually make the recipes smaller. He’s willing to eat leftovers until they’re gone, and lately, I’ve been cooking meals that we can freeze and eat again later. Earlier this week, I made shrimp and corn bisque, vegetable soup with beef, and chicken taco soup. Eat meal was pretty large, so I separated them into containers […]

Fat People Still Have To Eat, And Sometimes I Don’t Want Salad

Right now I’m sitting in a hipster coffee shop drinking a latte that was so pretty that I didn’t want to touch it. They serve the biggest, most ridiculous doughnuts I’ve ever seen, and I’ve been to some pretty ridiculous doughnut shops. The lattes here are too delicious to express with words, and on this day of rest, I decided to indulge in (part of) a doughnut. They’re so big that if I tried to eat it all I’d probably end up at the emergency room, or maybe I’d just feel sick. I don’t intend to find out. I spend a lot of time sharing my thoughts and ideas – on social media, here on the blog and in person with friends and family. I’m honest about my journey, struggles and victories, and it helps me keep track of where I’ve been and where I’m going. Being as open as I am also invites judgement, sometimes even from well-meaning people who just don’t have a clue. I like food…sushi, cookies, lattes, etc. Sometimes I eat that stuff, and if I’m eating something pretty I’m probably going to post it on Instagram. I’m as open about that as I would be about posting […]
