I usually have tons of energy the week after Aunt Flo but i've had low energy all week, I don't know why?! I didn't have any green smoothies this week, could that be why? I didn't eat as many salads/raw food either...that could be the reason too.
My recipes this week have been...ehhh. I LOVE Falafel King (gyros, yummy flatbread, pita bread, FALAFEL balls...mmm yummy, grilled chicken, tzatziki sauce) and was craving falafel balls all week. Falafel King sells pre-made falafel balls and tzatziki sauce in the milk/yogurt section at Whole Foods (if you live close enough to a restaurant you can buy the stuff there). I usually buy it from WF but found a popular recipe on Cooking Light and tried it out. It's not Falafel King but it tastes O.K., definitely better than my spiced-curry noodle dish last week.
lemon-dill vinaigrette salad dressing. Next time i'll use this greek salad recipe . I like it better.
I also made a 3P+ soup with lump-meat crab claws. Original recipe found here . It was OK, not great but OK. I liked my hommade falafel better. I'm bummed that I spent $8.00 on such DELICIOUS crab meat that's now mixed in a sauce that doesn't taste great but just OK.
This was probably my most favorite meal of the week, which I ate 3 times! It's my go to food that somehow, always hits the spot.
- 1 piece flatbread (I ate this instead of my usual 1/2 serving of lime tortilla chips)
- 1 to 2 oz cooked extra lean ground turkey in my hommeade, super low NA+ taco seasoning
- 1 serving shredded cheese
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup shredded lettuce
- red onion
- 2 tbsp extra hot salsa
If i'm still hungry after this, I eat more of it with extra lettuce, and without the flatbread/tortilla chips.
