Menu Monday 5/14

May 14, 2012

This past week was not necessarily a fun one.  Lily was sick... again!  Thankfully there was no ear infection this time so the tubes are apparently working.  Today she is having her hearing rechecked, as she failed the last 2 hearing tests before she got her tubes.  I am hopeful for a positive outcome.

Despite all of that, she is finally feeling better and eating better, so we enjoyed a nice Mother's day yesterday, spending a lot of time outside - finally - after the last 3 weekends of rain! 

I'm still struggling with insomnia.  It has gotten even worse, but I am trying to be hopeful that the cycle will break soon.

Now on to this week's menu.

  1. wow, that's a lot of processed food/ingredients that surely can't aid in obtaining weight loss and a healthier life.

  2. Anonymous, if you don't like the recipe, don't make it.

  3. Not a matter of liking or disliking, just questioning its nutritional value when trying to lose weight in a healthier and more long-term way.

    I make food that my family will eat. This gets my son to eat broccoli and chicken breast, so I do what works! If you've read my blog for any amount of time you would know that I certainly know how to lose weight in a long term and healthy way as I've lost 115 pounds and it took me 2 years to do it. I am not paleo, I do not just eat a clean diet. That does work for some people, for me I try to get a good balance of foods and eat in a way that works for my family and sometimes that includes cream of chicken soup in a sauce. If you saw my cart at the grocery store you'd notice that the majority of it is fresh stuff.. produce, meat, and dairy.
