First and foremost, a huge thank you for all our veterans that have served to protect our freedom. School is out today for Veterans Day and I am thankful to have a day to myself to enjoy the fall weather. I already started the day with a great workout at Pure Barre. I just loved the message in the bathroom mirror.
Now I am sitting down to enjoy some morning TV including Kelly & Michael and the Today Show with Hoda and Kathy Lee. This may be my favorite thing about being off. I just love morning TV shows. I also have a few productive things on the books today which includes dry cleaning and getting my car cleaned. Anyone else hoard their dry cleaning until you have 10+ items to take? I am sure I will not be liking this bill! Then tonight is our General Member Meeting at Junior League. There is a little shopping spree before the meeting with local vendors. I am looking forward to picking up some more Christmas gifts!
For dinner tonight I am planning on making one of my favorite low carb treats cauliflower cheese bread! Recently, I have been loving low carb dinners and sides. I find that when I eat a lot of protein I don't crave sweets as much and feel full for so much longer. I've been enjoying a chocolate protein shake for breakfast and then don't get hungry again until noon. That never happens when I have oatmeal or fruit for breakfast.
I have been experimenting a lot in the kitchen with different low carb breads and casseroles. I love how rich the flavors are and something about the cheese and cream is comforting on a cool fall night. In the past, I hardly ever cooked with cheese because of the high calories. But everything in moderation right? Here are some of my favorite cheesy and creamy recipes!
Do you have a favorite low carb recipe? Please share!
