    For dinner I ate a half salad from Wendy's that I didn't finish last night - lettuce, grilled chicken, nuts with some kind of gross sugary stuff on them, blue cheese, apples, cranberries - and pomegranate vinaigrette but I used about a teaspoon of that. I don't care for salad dressing very much.

    Also had a quesadilla on two small flour tortillas with mexican blend cheese and steak, salsa and sour cream.

    And I'm still 500 calories short for today :( and I ate a cupcake.

    So today I had 1 serving of tuna with a tbsp of olive oil mayo and 1tbsp of ranch dressing on a bed of spinach. I had a chocolate granOla bar too.

    For dinner, salsa chicken. I had 4 strips of chicken (two long strips and two short ones) with the sauce (pinto beans, salsa and spinach with seasoning) and green beans on the side

    That sounds good! Makes me wish I had a microwave.

    Since several people in the resolutions thread said they wanted to cook more this year, maybe I/we could make a "What's cooking?" thread. Post/share recipes, what you are/are planning on cooking, etc. Then we'd be able to find new foods and keep each other motivated to cook more.

    Today I had: 3 or 4 tablespoons of peanut butter, a glass of milk, and some maple-miso glazed sweet potato tacos with a coconut lime cilantro sauce. Paired it with a simple honey-lemon margarita. Yummm! So good.

    Had to increase my protein intake, so dinner for me was canned chicken, with one tablespoon of mayonnaise and a sprinkle of pepper, paprika, and garlic seasoning. Also shredded one little cube of mild cheddar cheese on top.

    Sorry for the bad picture, even by cell phone standards!

    I got to have sushi for lunch today... yummmmm... I can't do rice or anything so I literally just ate plain pieces of raw fish... no soy sauce because I'm not sure if that is paleo friendly or not. The salmon had a really nice flavor though so I was happy. Only 260 calories for lunch.

    Tomorrow morning I'm having an egg omelet for breakfast... eggs, tomato and New Mexican Hatch green chile and not sure what else I should add to it. I have some chicken I could probably shred and scramble into the omelet... hmm...

    Needed a snack before dinner, so berry sorbet with strawberries and pomegranate from work fit the bill. For dinner ginseng chicken soup and chicken and broccoli in a Malaysian BBQ sauce. If it isn't obvious, I like chicken, lol.

    Breakfast: A PB&J sandwich with 15 grain bread, a handful of almonds, a few strawberries, and water.

    Lunch: We were on the road, so I ended up eating a mini Snickers, orange PowerAde zero, and four packages of those little orange peanut butter cracker things. Whoops.

    Dinner: Unsure. If I do eat anything, it'll probably be a salad.

    Tomorrow I'm going to try to make some sort of frozen berry thingy, since I have a huge bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer.

    I am drooling a tiny bit. That sounds so much better than a sub with bread.

    Trick with the mayo - add 1 tbsp of mayo into greek yogurt. It will give you the flavor without all the calories.

    Ramen for brunch.

    Biscuits and gravy for dinner, along with a pot of vanilla tea.

    I've been considering trying some tuna with avocado as a snack for a couple hours now. It sounds soooooooooooooooooooo good and I got tuna and avocados at the store earlier. It's that or cookies, so...

    Anyone know if boiled eggs freeze/thaw well? I'm trying to plan a way to make it stupidly easy to eat right. In the past the only thing that's worked was pre-making a freezing meals. If I could make a week or two weeks worth of food ahead of time, freeze them in individual servings/days, then it would be perfect.

    I haven't actually tried it, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say no. Proteins generally aren't the greatest freezers. While it's in there it's constantly sublimating and depositing in very small amounts - the ice turns to vapor and the vapor turns to ice - which damages the proteins and causes them to become tough, chewy, and generally gross. Given that eggs typically have a high moisture content (even though the process of boiling them gets rid of some of that moisture, there's still some there), that makes them double bad for freezing. More moisture = more ice crystals, and things with high moisture just don't thaw well, anyway (think about frozen spinach or herbs).

    They will keep for several days (I've even done up to a week before). I used to boil 6-8 at a time and just nom on them throughout the week.

    I had another tuna and spinach salad. It's so yummy lol and I'm not really into salads most of the time.

    I also had one slice of whole wheat bread with a tbsp of peanut butter on it.

    not eating anything else before I go to my fitness class tonight. Supposedly our program this month is called combat :O sounds scary lol.

    Had an avacado for breakfast since I didn't have time to make an omelette.

    Lunch was sushi sashimi (tuna and salmon). Had that yesterday but the sushi place by my work has a half off deal right now.

    Snack: Apple

    Dinner.... Not sure yet

    Eggs don't freeze well. But they keep in the fridge at least 4-5 days, if not longer, and boiled eggs don't take very long. It'd be doable to make them every handful of nights

    Today hasn't been great. These stupid peanut butter crackers!

    Breakfast: 3 packages of peanut butter crackers and a pint of blueberries

    Lunch: Salad with all the "salad junk".

    Snack: 2 packages of peanut butter crackers and a handful of cashews.

    Unsure what dinner will be.
