Starting Sunday Cheats

Posted Oct 11 2010 12:25pm

My trainer tossed me a carrot a few weeks ago — the idea that I might start some weekly cheat meals soon.  And this past Sunday was the night!  In anticipation of the Sunday cheat, I am moderating carbs on Fridays and Saturdays, so I get to eat a little less oatmeal and fewer apples.  But eating what most people would think is a “normal’ meal on Sunday nights makes the carb moderation so worth it!

This Sunday, I genuinely had very little craving for a particular cheat meal.  Odd, because usually my first inclination is pizza.  David and I headed over to Wegmans, though, and I browsed their prepared foods department for good eats.  I pretty much ended up with a mix of foods I wouldn’t normally purchase from Wegmans, though for the most part, this is still relatively “healthy” stuff:

  • Vegetarian chili with kidney beans and lentils
  • Part of an organic whole wheat roll
  • Roasted acorn and butternut squash with summer squash, mushrooms and onions
  • Roasted asparagus with Gorgonzola and pecans
  • Roasted yams with brown sugar glaze
  • Pesto tofu
  • A large, yummy, spicy pumpkin cookie with cream cheese frosting

Oh, and I had some peanut butter.  Directly out of the jar, of course, just because I could!

Best cheat meal ever?  No.  But satisfying and a welcome change to the norm nonetheless.
