Deja Vu Lunch

December 9, 2007

Showered and back from the grocery store! I did great sticking to my list in an effort to save some money these days. I did manage to buy 2 cartons of Edy’s Slow Churned – Peppermint and Egg Nog – because they were buy-one-get-one-free!!! I LOVE seasonal products, so I have that “I better get it while they have it” mentality about these two guys. My goal is to have it no more than twice a week – or less – to make it last long and to not overload with ice cream :) They were out of cranberries at the store!! I’ll have to check mid-week. I’ve got a spaghetti squash in the oven right now for my lunches.

Lunch

I felt a little deja vu at lunch today because I had last night’s dinner. I don’t really like taking soup in my lunch to work (I prefer a sandwich, but I do take soup every now and then) so I figured it was now or never with this serving. It was quite delicious though!

Hi Kath,

Just a quick question – how do you deal with food cravings? I'm trying to lose about 30 pounds (again), and I'm having a tough time with food cravings, bingeing, and just plain motivating myself to lose the weight. Any tips? Thanks!

Ala,

Thanks so much for the nice compliments!

Annie,

Hopefully the video helped answer your questions!

Anon,

Gosh, tough choice. If I had to pick one food to live on for the rest of my life it would be oatmeal. It's filling, a superfood, and you get a nice portion for 150 nutritious calories. Close behind would be peanut butter (all natural), cheese (anything sharp), and dark chocolate. It's too hard to decide!

Lauren,

Dealing with cravings is something that has taken me a while to overcome. What I think helped me the most were the books I recommend – they really changed my mentality about food and helped me realize that a craving is just a desire for food on the tongue – not in the stomach. Once I got over that, I learned ways to get around them and realized they were mostly mental. I would really recommend reading Fit From Within. Now that I don't eat much junk food, the cravings happen less and less. And alcohol is a killer craving trigger for me so I try to limit it to special occasions or when I know there isn't junk nearby.

Hi Kath,

I just wanted to say hello. I am new to your blog this past week and it is such a great blog!! I have yet to come across a food blog that is so well done, frequently updated, well written, etc. I admire everything you are doing! I am about your age and I also am maintaining about a 25 pound weight loss, so I find you very inspiring. I love the great meal ideas too.

Hi Kath, I was just wondering how you prepare you spaggheti squash. I have never tried it, but have been reading recently on all the things that can be made with it.

Any info would be appreciated
