Three Healthy Weight Loss Recipes

Category: Cooking,My Outfits,ProjectsEyeliah @ 1:37 am

There are so many posts I want to write right now but I cannot find enough time.
This is the list…

1. The clothing swap items I recently acquired.
2. My favorite silk pieces on etsy right now (see my faves here).
3. A polyvore compilation of 4-5 looks where just changing accessories changes the look completely.
4. The latest review / giveaway for you all to enter.
5. The dress my mom got me months ago in an outfit.
6. Another literary inspiration post.
7. The five items I got at the thrift shop today for a mere $6.
8. A closet recap (no longer just 99 pieces).

So I am giving you three posts in one to get a few out of my system.
1. Three great weight loss recipes
2. My weight loss update and
3. A recent outfit

RECIPES

Kale Chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash kale and then tear into bite size pieces. In a medium bowl add kale, 1 tbsp olive oil and 1/4 to 1/2 of a lemon to taste and massage together.  Spread out kale evenly on two baking sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes, until crispy.  So many vitamins and utterly delicious.

Homemade Vegetable Soup

Saute onions in garlic in a light amount of olive oil. In a large pot fill many veggies like eggplant, carrots, green onions, zucchini, peppers, broccoli stems etc.  Cover with water and bring to a boil.  Once the onion is translucent add the garlic and onion to the pot.  Cover and simmer for at least one hour.  This is great to make in a large batch, just put leftovers in the fridge and reheat as needed.  I tend to add a pinch of sea salt to my bowl of soup as well.

Avocado Mango Pita

In a medium bowl mix half an avocado and a third of a mango and fresh veggies such as spinach torn in bite size pieces, yellow pepper, peeled carrot, cucumber, tomato and then set aside.  Mix in a small dish 1/4 tsp horseradish and 2 tsps fresh lemon juice and then drizzle over veggies and toss together.  Add mixture into whole wheat pita and eat right away.

WEIGHT LOSS UPDATE

My healthy eating plan is going quite well.  It has been 20 days and I have had 18 perfect days.  Sunday was a bit harder with a family meal early in the day and another day I had a few fried food tastes and a drink.

~Inches Lost~
Bust: -1 Waist: -2 Hips: -1 Arm: -0.5

I have already seen HUGE results, 2 inches off my waist already?  Wow!
With these results I decided to make my goals slightly more lofty.

 ~Inches Left To Lose~
Bust: -0 Waist: -1.5 Hips: -3 Arm: -1

I am hoping to be at my goals at the end of 8 weeks total.  At that time I will gradually increasing my calories to 500 extra per day.

AN OUTFIT

This is a clothing swap skirt (thanks Karina) I have been wearing at least once every week.  I am a huge fan of olive green, pockets and a line skirts so of course I love it.  I am also kind of digging how short it is.

What have you been wanting to post?

    whats the leafy stuff in the soup, WTG looks yumm, i love home made soups, one other thing you can do is take half of the soup and throw in the blender, .. then add to the non blended, it makes it thick and chunky … tricks your mind to think youre eating a cream soup. I wanna see the black dress on you :-)
