Cooking and Relaxing

Had a picnic box for lunch and made one of my favorite vegan Mac and cheese recipe with gluten free pasta and brown rice cereal for breadcrumbs. May have eaten too much of it, but it’s delicious and I did leave some for lunch this week. Also had a small granola bar and a coconut water Popsicle.

Made some cookie dough balls for snacks for the week too. Now I have two different kinds of those, plus granola bars and fruit leather. Made some hummus (hint – remove the skins – takes a while but I swear it’s worth it) and some cucumber chips in the dehydrator. we’ll see how those are.

Still feeling tired and sick, but well enough to cook. I’ve missed cooking. Being so tired and ill and depressed kept me from cooking for awhile, and certainly led to much of my weight gain. I’m feeling so much better about myself and my nutrition. It’s nice to not constantly be down in the dumps anymore. I had a hell of a roller coaster with some different anti-depressants but it seems like I’ve got a good one now.
