Routine maintenance, my healthy eating solution and SAGA party

Yesterday I did not feel like writing so I took a maintenance day instead and did some laptop clean up so I could start a fresh back up. I was glad I did as AVG picked up a corrupted file, thankfully my next 2 scans came out clean. After that it was just patience to put everything on my external hard drive and second back up on several flash drives. Not terribly glamorous work but someone has to do it 🙂

My big excitement of the week is my new healthy eating solution. After falling off  the food wagon big time, I found a cook to help keep me on track. I set a weekly budget and told Claire what kinds of things we liked and she added her own suggestions. Mary and I headed north on Tuesday to put the first order in and Paul went and picked it up Wednesday afternoon. I knew most of what she was making but some of it was still to be a surprise, we ended up with hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh salad, black beans with peppers, fried mini tortillas and a big whack of snook.  Claire’s cooking is super delicious and I love that all I have to do plate it and I am done. This is a great option for people on vacation who are renting a place with a kitchen and want a reasonably priced healthy food option without the cooking.

Although I have been really good on not eating any fake food for about 11 days, there is a box of jujyfruits imported from Montana that have been staring me down since last Friday and I think tonight they are going to win.

Good for you TG, best of luck with your clean diet, although Dr. Al’s meal sounds scrumptious.

Thanks Charlotte. I agree his meal does sound yummy except for the Cabernet lol.

Dr Al 19/10/2013 - 6:14 am

Dr Al dinner…pork tenderloin with creamy lime cilantro sauce, basmati rice, broccoli au gratin with a bottle of Cabernet . Dessert was brownie with cool whip, vanilla ice cream, and chocolate syrup on top. This was last night in fact.
Laurie dinner.. Mashed yeast, alfalfa sprouts, roasted eggplant and chickpea gruel.
I see no complex decision making here. Just sayin..

Your cooking is too far away lol. Nothing wrong with fish and salad for dinner. Surprisingly I opted out on dessert.
