Anyway. We are going to focus on the positives of C being out of town.
I CAN EAT WHATEVER I WANT!!!
And by that, I mean I don't have to worry about making super tasty but healthy dishes that will be good for me points wise and yummy for him. I don't have to hover over his shoulder while he cooks to see exactly what goes into the meal so I can calculate it on the WW app on my phone to make sure I have enough points for the day. And most importantly......I don't have to look up menus online before we go out to eat to see if there is anything I can eat on the menu!!
So, while I also LOVE eating out (it's not solely his fault!), I am going to take advantage of these 9 days (only 3 left now!) of him being gone to eat in! I try really hard when I go out to be honest about how much I eat and to cut portion sizes and unhealthy add ons whenever possible. I managed to sit at the local Mexican place and ONLY eat my tacos while the beans and rice on my plate went untouched.
But regardless of how disciplined I am when I eat out, the fact remains that I don't really know the food I am eating. It is likely higher in fat and sodium, and if I made the same meal for myself at home, it would probably be healthier simply by using fat free and low sodium ingredients.
So while he is gone, I am going to challenge myself to eat in! I will let you know how it goes.
What are your favorite restaurant knock-offs that you could make healthier at home??
