I think I finally need to embrace the fact that I have to get more active. There's no getting around the fact that I simply don't move enough. Next week my morning schedule is changing and I am going to be forced out of the house for almost an hour Mon-Fri so I'm thinking of using that time for walking. Nothing too intense just walking 30 minutes out then back to school.
Though I really can't see any walking making a difference next week at the scale after my 10 course meal Saturday night and lunch Sunday at the German buffet in Epcot but maybe I can at least minimize the damage.
Last week I told you we were starting Meatless Mondays. One thing I've learned very quickly that if you don't want to simply have soup or salad these meals tend to take planning. Can you tell I got caught behind the dinner bell this week. However I was able to find a meal that only took 15 minutes to put together and was a huge hit.
This recipe is from Corey at Family Fresh Meals. She calls it Cauliflower Fried Rice I think she should rename it to Fake-Out Fried Rice as you wouldn't know the rice was missing if you weren't told. In addition to being tasty it is incredibly easy and outside of cauliflower you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen to begin with:
Frozen peas (1/2 cup)
Carrots sliced or shredded (1/2 cup)
Diced Onions (1/2 cup)
Garlic Cloves (3)
Soy Sauce (3T)
as for the Cauliflower you need 3 cups grated.
Hint: If you want your family to believe it is rice and not cauliflower I suggest that you don't use green or purple cauliflower (which of course is what I had in the house)
Next week I'll share all of the wonderful yumminess from Victoria and Albert's. OMG I can barely stand it!!! (Yes, I am well aware that I have issues)
