Sometimes eating out is just unavoidable. But you don't have to sacrifice your eating!
You can get creative just about anywhere...
Including Waffle House now!
Ryan and I grabbed dinner at Waffle House this week. He was craving it and I was dreading it. I am absolutely working my butt off (pun definitely intended) and I don't want to sabotage my efforts.
Luckily I saw some potential options on their menu!
Some Waffle House locations are serving oatmeal for breakfast. W
e were there for dinner, so I had to keep searching...
I had an omelet with jalapenos and tomatoes. They have a fiesta omelet, but you have to watch out for that processed cheese they throw in it! You can also get just an egg white omelet there now.
I had wheat toast without butter and a side of tomatoes.
It was filling, healthy and satisfying all the way around!
I was happy because I felt like I could still enjoy one of my husband's favorite places to eat.
In the past I would eat grits loaded with butter and salt, a side of greasy bacon, two pieces of raisin toast smothering in butter, and scrambled eggs with cheese and salt.
Talk about a diet killer! No wonder I weighed as much as I did!
Some of you have asked if I ever feel deprived of my favorite foods.
I honestly do not. There are some days that I crave comfort foods, but I find a way to make them healthier. I never feel like I deprive myself. If I can't make something better, I make sure I splurge in moderation. Sometimes I am really craving an Oreo ice cream bar, so I make Ryan buy one and I take a couple of bites. I still feel like I get my treat, but I don't eat the whole thing and nothing goes to waste.
I stopped constantly craving junk. Yes, it took a little bit but I don't craving sweets daily anymore. I get them maybe once or twice a month now. I just don't miss them and I am sooo glad!
