I rediscoverd an old favourite recently more specifically Gardenburgers. I first discovered these at Earl's actually, long time back. I loved their veggie burger and then found out these were the patties they used. I would buy them all the time and then sort of fell out of the habit. Well it was more packing my freezer so full of stuff that I wouldn't know it was in there and by the time I found it freezer burn had set in. I always do that with frozen stuff, which is really stupid. You can get some great WW friendly stuff like Gardenburgers and Healthy Baked Fish and I buy this stuff (it's typically pricey) then ignore it until too much time has past and I have to toss it.
Hopefully the tide will turn on this bad behaviour. I had to clean out my freezers (yes there's two- one on top of the fridge and a bar fridge size one in the basement - both contained long forgotton items) when I went to make or take meals. I love the meal stuff but alot of it takes a while to cook (ie must be defrosted) so I find it's good for weekend projects. The Gardenburger is fabulous for quick weeknight dinners. It's takes not time at all to cook in a frying pan, spritzed with a wee bit of olive oil. Then I had it on a whole wheat kaiser bun with some red onions, a bit of low fat miracle whip and dijon mustard. It was awesome! I might have it again tonight. I had some steamed green beans on the side spritzed with becel spray. I was in heaven.
My new plan is to keep my freezer organized so I know what's in there beyond the frozen veggies and McCain's fries. I might pick up a box of Heatlhy Bake this weekend.
My major plan for this weekend is to meal plan. I've had yet another rollercoaster week OP wise because I didn't have a plan, part of the reason was the week before TOM and the snack attacks. It's not like this will stop happening so I best get in the habit of preparing for it.
I need to get on the wagon and strap myself in. I am the only person who can make this WW thing work for me and it's time I accept the responsibility.
