Weekly Weigh-In

I decided to start during a weekly weigh-in. Every Monday (this post is a little late sorry) I’ll share what I lost the week before and how the week went.

This past week  I did a ton of cooking. I attempted to meal prep on Sunday for the week and let’s just say that was a fail. I had this bright idea that I would make a faux shrimp and grits casserole using mashed cauliflower. Think I was so smart I went to Trader Joe’s and bought a bag of their riced cauliflower. I just knew buying an already riced product would speed up my cooking time and make this dish fool proof. Nope not at all. I steamed the riced cauliflower for like a total of 20 mins. Nothing I did made it tender and soft enough to mash. Again me trying to be smart decided to put it in my Nutribullet. No a good idea. Enough though I only pulsed it for 2 seconds I had full fledged cauliflower puree. Plus it  had that  awful cruciferous smell. I thought adding a beaten egg and cream cheese would help thicken it up but that didn’t really work.  It was just flat out nasty. Basically this dish was a waste of overpriced riced cauliflower and a pound of shrimp. No my proudest culinary moment.

However, I also ended up making “Crack Slaw” which is a popular low carb meat and cabbage dish that turned out pretty well. For breakfast I made an Italian sausage, spinach and mozzarella frittata that was a definite win! Be on the look out recipes soon.

Now to the important stuff, my weigh in. I lost a total of 1.2 pounds for a total of 17.2 pounds lost. My goal is 2 pounds a week so I was a little short this week. But I’m glad it was still a loss.
