It's not just 'No!'

It's 'Oh hell NO!'

It could be that I've been struggling - taking it moment by moment.   On Saturday when I sat down to figure out what I'd be cooking for next week and what I needed to pick up at the store, it was at that moment I said, "No."

This is not happening.

The Ratatouille sounds good.  There's a red cabbage slaw that will make use of the red cabbage I bought but that is where it ends.  I am limited in what I can eat because of my sensitivity to some grains. And the recipes I could eat?  Not happening.

For instance THIS is not breakfast. 
Mushrooms and onions, rolled oats, vegetable broth, spinach and egg whites.

No. Just. No.
I will happily make an omelet and have oatmeal on the side (sans vegetable broth).  But I will not mix this together and call it breakfast.  No.

I have committed to this Jump Start Program and I will see it through next Saturday.  But I am going to take items from week 1 and week 2 to make week 3. 

This program was designed for people who had an event in the near future.  I don't and thus I don't have the drive that others might.

So there you have it. 
(This would have posted on Saturday but my computer at home and blogger are apparently at war)

On Sunday I had to laugh at myself.  I refuse to put vegetable broth in my oatmeal and mix it with eggs.  Bwhahahaha this from the lady that balked at putting eggs in her oatmeal and discovered she loved it.

However, I'm still not going to try it.  I had eggs on the side and oatmeal without any fruit.  Sorry Bob.

The count down to the end of this Jump Start is on!!


  1. You go girl! I wouldn't try it either. Sounds rather yucky from where I am sitting. Best of luck with the rest of the week. You can do it!

  2. It is probably delicious - and perhaps sometime when I have the time to prepare another breakfast should this be an epic fail - I might try. Just not right now. ;)

    1. Thanks. I don't think I'll ever say the diet word again. Though I have enjoyed some of the recipes very much.

  4. It's like they're trying to make it disgusting. There are plenty of foods that are delicious and good for you at the same time- and you don't need to cook them all together at once.
