Oran’t you sick of ORANGE!?!?

I know I AM after eating orange colored foods all week long!!!  =O

Of course, I love all the foods I ate this week. 

I just had WAY to much of them everyday……..I have never minded eating the same thing several days in a row but this week I was sick of what I had on Day 2.  =( 

Going to try to plan better for next week, wish me luck!

Do you eat a lot of the same things throughout the week?  If so why?

I do for the following reasons:

  • It is CHEAPER!  When you live on a budget as tight as mine it is a must I’m afraid, we all eat a lot of the same things on a weekly basis in my house from breakfast to dinner and even snacks.  Yes, it gets boring and you get sick of things but you have to do what you have to do and I do try my best to mix it up….when I can!
  • It is EASIER!  When you are a full-time working mom & wife that also hits the gym or the pavement to run several times a week you have to make things as “easiest” as possible at home.  So that means you have less time for cooking, preping, etc…….

I was raised this way too so I think it is just “normal” to me!  Though I would love to try something new everyday at every meal if I had the time and the money to do it!

TIP OF THE DAY!

Eat Out for Less (Calories!)

 

 

 

 

4. Go two-fisted

Try drinking a full glass of water between glasses of wine. The water fills you up, says Mitzi Dulan, RD, co-author of The All-Pro Diet, and will cut down on how many 120-calorie glasses of wine you drink.

Next: 5. Cut the grease

    I eat a TON of orange foods, too…sweet potatoes are always at the top of my list. And carrots as well – in fact, I just ate 3 horse-sized carrots about a minute ago. I’m not sick of the color yet! 🙂
