And we're back....
Has it really been over a month since my last post? Wow! As some of you may know, I've been doing a bit of traveling for my job over the last month or so. Since the second week of February I've been to Chicago, Charleston, SC, Las Vegas and Detroit all on separate trips. Phew... its been a little crazy. So to say the least, I haven't been cooking a whole lot at home and have left my poor husband to fend for himself.
On that note, now will be a good time to admit that Dan has decided to go back to a carnivorous diet and is back on the meat. I've decided to stick with the pescetarianism so we're doing a little coexisting in our house. I decided to continue with veggies and fish because its fun and I feel great. Dan is still going to be enjoying the pescetarian meals that I will create. I'm considering trying to make some combo meals that are part veggie and part meaty, too.
I will be honest and say that I haven't been 100% over the last month. Travel has some serious challenges for restricted diets. I did really great in Chicago except for a little tiny bit of bacon. I had some new foods in Vegas (courtesy of Chef Mario Batali - I was actually good and ordered the Penne ala Norma (penne w/ crispy eggplant), but couldn't resist trying a colleague's meatballs). Charleston kept me on-point (it was only one day and one meal!). Detroit, which is my hometown, lured me in with old favorites and I didn't do so well. On top of all this, airport and convention center options aren't that great but I got by on cheese pizza, trail mix and tuna sandwiches.
Needless to say, I've also felt pretty unhealthy the last month or so. Not planning and not cooking has led me to relying on prepacked, easy and crap foods. No more! Well, I'm sure there will be a little bit more, but going to try my best to get back into cooking and eating better and meat-free!
So welcome back and thanks for hanging in there with me.
