Ladies and Gents, I am dealing with a food hangover.
You know how I told you I lost 30 pounds since giving birth to Aleksandra 6 months ago? I think it all came back last night. I ate like a cow. At one point I took a two-hour break from eating, then I went back at it again; a full plate for the second time.
I am too scared to get on that scale today. That’s why I’m not going anywhere near it until after January. The Holidays are upon us and I don’t have any available days left for diets in my calendar.
Tonight we are going to have this lighter-on-the-belly Leftover-Turkey Frittata for dinner. It’s packed with leftover turkey and I added fresh spinach to it… it’s the only healthy thing in my fridge. This frittata goes really good with a nice dollop of sour cream or some plain thick yogurt. Also, please don’t add too much salt to this. Your turkey was salted enough, I am sure, thus adding more salt to the eggs might result in a very salty experience.
I’m also thinking about pouring some of that delicious cranberry maple syrup over vanilla ice cream for dessert… Yeah, I think I’ll do that for sure. I’ll try to limit myself to a scoop.
