Week of dieting and leftovers

I have forced to diet. YES, forced. I won’t fit into my bridesmaids dress, and in order to do so I need to drink smoothies and eat lot of greens, and almost ONLY greens ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the reason I haven’t posted anything for a week. Dieting makes me angry because I can not experiment with fun foods. When I mean FUN, I mean greasy and delicious ๐Ÿ™‚

YES, I know somsmuutie of you would say healthy food can be fun. But I like to use butter and heavy cream in my dinners. The sauces are just much more tastier this way. And I really don’t care for diet cookies where you replace butter or even flour. I tasted one a week ago and this is just for me. Everything that’s bad for you is the most yummy ๐Ÿ™‚

Don’t get me wrong, I do eat a lot of green salads, asparagus, broccoli and I like all sorts of fruits, my favourite is a pineapple.

My morning smoothies last week that I had for breakfast contained bananas, either blueberries or raspberries, pineapple and spinach. Also a cup of orange juice with pulp. A big cup of heaven every morning! Also I added chia and flax seeds. Result 500g loss per week (I weigh 114lbs) and the wedding is next Saturday. I hope I fit into my dress by then. Fingers crossed.

The week earlier we just used all the leftovers from our fridge and mixed stuff up. That is a great way to clean your fridge. I used no recipes, just whipped something up. So here are few pictures of our dinners.
