What We Ate, February 25 – March 3, 2018

What We Ate, February 10 – 16, 2018

This week I felt like I was always running behind.  I made a menu plan, but I kind of forgot that we couldn’t eat meat on Wednesday or Friday this week, so that threw a wrench in things.  Also, I’m still adjusting to being on a soft food diet, so I needed to make some […]

What I Ate in a Day on Weight Watchers Freestyle Program

One of the reasons I decided to join Weight Watchers again is because I needed accountability but also because I felt the new Freestyle program would work for my lifestyle.  I eat mostly Paleo, which means I eat lots of fruits and veggies and meat.  I didn’t want to have to count the fruits.  Last […]

The month is over! We ate many of the freezer meals I made this month,  but we still have 30 or so going into October, which is a huge blessing! This week was busy, and I wasn’t as diligent about writing down what we ate everyday, so you’ll see that some days I just don’t […]

What We Ate Last Week, September 9th – 15th, 2017

We had a good, but busy week.  Even though I didn’t really enjoy spending a few hours every day over Labor Day weekend stocking the freezer with freezer meals, I’m so thankful now as we’ve been eating those meals 3 to 4x a week. Here’s what we ate this week: This post contains affiliate links. […]

What We Ate Last Week, August 26th – September 1st

This week, we made some new dishes including one I found on YouTube for Oxtail Soup.  We’re on a mission to use up all the meat–including oxtail and the bit of remaining organ meat that we have–before we get our 1/4 side of beef in late October.  Some kids liked the Oxtail Soup while others […]
