Little FAT Me

I work full time and I barely have time to breathe. In 2005 hurricane Katrina rearranged my life, since then I have gained roughly 80-90 pounds. I believe that it started in depression and became an addiction. I have started and failed many diets and then decided that MAYBE if I combine diet and exercise with blogging and shopping I might be able to find success. This is the story of 2010 and my struggle to rise above addiction, pain, depression and fat.

Today's Gourmet ~ Asain Shrimp Salad

First let's talk about the basic: iceberg lettuce 30 calories, 22 medium shrimp 45 calories, clementine 35 calories, one table spoon Asian sesame dressing (full fat NOT light) 45, touch of garlic salt 0 calories.
So there are the stats. Only what really matters is it was an amazing, delicious salad that would easily rival any resteraunt salad at only 155 calories! It was so good and flavorful. I was like, I really want a salad - how can I make that fun? And I whipped this up! This is why o love cooking and I do so well when I can be home! I adore cooking and this salad was SO filling! I could eat this twice a day and not NEED to eat anything else. Notice I said need, chances are I would eat something. lol
Once things settle I am getting back into the swing if cooking most meals! I really am happiest with food when I spend 200 or less calories per meal and the can snack lightly as needed to achieve my 1200 daily calories.
