What do you go to when you want a delicious, fantastic meal?
Carbohydrates... every time... at least most times.
I'm trying to cut out a whole lot of that from my diet.
It's going ok, but I'm not really a strict rules type of person. So I decided to allow myself pasta and bread sometimes, but to really think about it and stay away from it most days.
One day last week the hubs and I wanted to have a nice dinner so I picked up some fresh pasta from Trader Joe's (I had never really been in one).
I had also never had fresh pasta. I am in love with it. It was fast and easy, cheap (especially when you compare it to getting pasta at a restaurant), and it tasted so good.

I don't really think that my eating habits will ever be unbelievably healthy, but I'm trying. I get fresh produce whenever I can afford it (I hate the fact that the cheap foods are the worst for you--it's not surprising that our country is getting more and more unhealthy). I am also trying to teach myself some self control. I'm a bad person when it comes to trying to cut back.
I'm just going to take it meal by meal.
