No bad attitudes here

Thank you all for your comments on my previous post. It’s hard for me to write posts like that but I’m glad that my honestly is appreciated. I just want to get to a place where I can eat delicious healthy foods in moderation and give you guys advice about how to keep up with life and food and stay healthy and sane 😉 One day!

Hope your week started on the rights foot. I saw a funny post yesterday in a doctor’s office that said: “Bad attitude is like a flat tire – you can’t go anywhere until you fix it!” There was a silly picture of a cat on a bike with a flat tire that went with it. Funny stuff. Anyways, I thought that was good message to share. We all need to be good to ourselves and leave the bad attitude behind. :)

I don’t have much to say this morning, so here are yesterday’s eats (scroll over for descriptions).

Dinner was a little special and featured a beautiful piece of local and grass fed filet mignon we bought at the Tendercrop Farm on Saturday. I followed this recipe from Cooking Light for filet mignon with cabernet sauce and the haricots verts and wild mushrooms with hazelnuts recipe from the same The Best of Cooking Light 9 issue for the green beans (the recipe does not appear to be online, I substituted almonds for hazelnuts and omitted the mushrooms).

I got impatient and didn’t let the sauce reduce enough but the flavor was excellent. This is also the first time I had beef in ages. I was really craving beef so it really hit the spot! I had a splash of red with it 😉

+ ww wrap with nutella for dessert.

We ended the evening by watching lots of home improvement shows. I can’t believe we’re moving into our new condo in 3.5 weeks. Exciting and scary!! Enjoy your Tuesday… and be good to yourself! No bad attitudes, ok? :)

  • Yay local grass-fed meat! We don’t eat anything else anymore.

    I’ve been working on staying positive too. It’s kind of cheesy, but zenhabits.net has some great articles about staying sane. It’s a good reminder for me to stay upbeat when things aren’t working the way I want them to.

    Great analogy with the flat tire! So true!! I love the nutella in this post – I haven’t had it in so long, I miss it!

    It seems like you are learning a lot about yourself. I work with quite a few overeaters/bingers and it’s a path. There is no perfection, and it takes a while to get to the place you want to be. You’re on the road now and you just need to follow it, be aware, and learn! Good luck.

  • Beautiful steak dinner, and great overall attitude!

    The nutella/pb toast looks mouth-watering… mmmmm.

  • Mmm…those berries look great. And the nutella wrap too!

  • so noted 😉 (bout the bad attitudes! it’s so true, and i’m trying!!!)

  • i need to find a farm like that somewhere around here..surely there is one! it just sounds like such a fun day

  • Elina

    What an interesting site, Daria!

    RuntoFinish – I’m sure there is a farm like that by you. I had no idea about this one I went to, but after researching it, it looks like there are a whole bunch of them semi-close to me. It really is a lot of fun! 😀

  • Great quote! That will give me something to think about today :) How was the Nutella + PB pairing? I usually have one or the other, but I bet together they were awesome!

  • Elina

    Lara, I kind of ate them separate. I was just craving both so I put both on a piece of toast. Mixing them up could be fun… or awful 😉
