For those of you that follow along with me you know that I’m in the middle of “My Weight Loss Journey” and have been experimenting with healthier recipes that are going to help me achieve my goals. As part of my 5 & 1 eating plan I am responsible for making myself 1 super healthy Lean and Green Meal each day. It’s something that I look forward to every day, but it comes with it’s challenges. When I decided that I needed to lose weight (about 80 pounds since having our new little boy — pregnancy was hard on my body) I knew I would have to go with a structured eating plan. I have been trying to “watch what I eat” and “eat healthier” for the past 11 months and have not lost any weight at all. Apparently I have absolutely no will power when trying to lose weight all by myself.
I knew if I was going to be successful that I’d have to be put on a very structured plan. It was important to me that I still was able to cook somewhat for myself… because I’m a food blogger and I LOVE food. That’s why I decided on a program called Medifast. I have a list of foods that I can cook from each day, and today I decided to make a super yummy “ranch” flavored cottage cheese dip recipe. I’m a sucker for dip and have been missing it the past few weeks since I’ve been losing weight (8.0 pounds and 9 total inches from my body as of my last weigh in). I really enjoyed this dip and ended up pairing it with raw broccoli and cauliflower. I ate it as my one healthy meal that I cooked for myself today and it was great! It was just what I needed to curb my dip craving!
