Not feeling so hot today. I’m going to crawl back in bed and see if I can come back to life by noon. It looks like it’s going to be a “plan B” day.
I finally bought some vital wheat gluten so I can make seitan again. Jeff and I have been seriously missing this meat replacement! We love it more than meat, for sure. It’s just PACKED with protein too, so what a great way to get more protein into our diets without adding cholesterol.
The recipe I have posted here on my blog was originally from Post Punk Kitchen. I’ve tweeked the spices pretty seriously, to get them just the way we like it. It keeps for weeks in the fridge, months in the freezer and it doesn’t cost much to make.
So, later today, our Christmas vacation starts. Jeff gets off at 11 and then we have almost 2 weeks off. Sooo glad.
I’m working at staying on track to either maintain my weight this week or to lose at least a tiny bit. I want to come out of this week with a win. Not gaining, in a holiday week would be a big win. It would show ME that I can control the situation while still enjoying.
