Weekly Meals

Well Mr. Gaunt and I are still (if not more) sick than we were yesterday. We have major head colds, full of snot. I havent had a cold this bad in a while. In fact I’m not sure I even got a cold last year, I know I had a major stomach flu twice, but no colds. So this sucks. When I was a senior in high school I got Strept Throat like 5 times in a three month period and ended up in the hospital, so colds scare the shit out of me, especially when my throat hurts. I’m also allergic to Penicillin and Amoxicillin (I get hives) so if a cold gets bad enough that I need antibiotics things get complicated. Anyways we both called out sick for tomorrow, partly for ourselves and also so we don’t contaminate our co-workers.

For the most part all we have eaten this weekend is Orange Juice and Special K Italian Tomato Herb Crackers (90 cal for 17) and a little soup. This afternoon when I stepped on the scale I was only 2.5 lbs away from hitting my 75lb goal loss. Thats pretty freaking crazy. If I can hit my 65lb loss on the WW scale tomorrow I will be very happy! Tomorrow we plan on doing a little grocery shopping (and fridge cleaning!) so I need to make a shopping list, and the best way to do that is to make a meal plan. Now I don’t always stick to my meal plans perfectly, but it’s still a good way to find new recipes and stock the fridge with good ingredients.

And so without further ado…

Spicy Garlic Shrimp and Kale over Quinoa

Vegan Potato Soup

Vegan Potato Soup

With the weather getting colder I really would like to try some new soup recipes. I was talking to my mom today and she has been making soups for Honeymoon (her work) and I want to make some yummy ones for us too! Plus you can often freeze them and save them for lunch. Oh and I HATE 90% of all canned soups so home made is better.

Anyways here is a list of soups I would like to try soon:

-Vegan Mexican Pumpkin Soup

-Easy Vegan Potato Soup

-Weight Watchers Tortilla Soup

-Weight Watchers French Onion Soup

Im sure Ill think of more, but making lists like this helps me store recipes and make a game plan for meals. Ill of course post anything I make. Do you have any fave soup recipes? Please share!
