How NOT to Eat Like a College Kid!
Monday, September 29, 2014
Well, I did it. I made it through a weekend with my son and his girlfriend at home and didn't gain weight. In fact, I lost weight!!!! I'm soooo happy this morning. It was sooo simple. All I had to do is eat healthier versions of their "college food".
For example, instead of a plate of Crispy Crowns (sometimes with cheese melted over the top), I had scrambled eggs, sautéed veggies with a sprinkle of low-fat cheese and just a half dozen Crispy Crowns, and Yes I savored every one of them. Ü
For lunch when they had Doritos with cheddar cheese nachos, I had a Turkey Taco Salad with a sprinkling of low-fat cheddar, salsa and a half oz of Doritos crumbled on top - I got the flavor but a much healthier and lighter lunch.
For dinner they had yellow rice, sliced and sautéed sausages and sautéed bell peppers and mushrooms, and while I had the same thing, I had half portions of the rice and sausages and double portions of the veggies.
I think I'm getting the hang of this. Ü
P.S. For the record my son and his girlfriend are both veeerrrry thin and if they gained 15 lbs it wouldn't be the end of the world, but for me, I'm waaaaaaaaaay to mature to be gaining that Freshmen 15 along with them, although they're both seniors now.
