No food buying Post #3
Day 6 – Dinner
Finished up a bag of perogies that I had in the freezer. Added in fried onions & 40 calorie ham sausage. Instead of sour cream I always use Greek yogurt as a dip. Less fat & calories!
Day 7 – Breakfast
Day 9 – Some would say I cheated but some would say I’m very clever.
After work on Day 9 I really did not feel like eating anything that I had in my place. Wow! Already eh Sam? It’s only been 9 days. This is a common problem with me, hence why I’m doing this experiment. I hadn’t seen a good friend in a couple of weeks & I had invited him over for dinner & was going to suck it up by just eating something that was available for the shopping in my freezer & cabinets.
I suggested I cook him Lamb chops with a kale salad. I knew he probably wouldn’t want the kale, but really that’s all I had to offer in veggies. He was not up for this meal. I reminded him that I cannot spend any money on food this month & if he wanted he could bring something for me to cook. He was actually down for the idea! Yes! I felt kind of clever but some have told me it was cheating. Regardless, I didn’t have to eat something in Sam’s condo store. New food was about to be delivered!
He brought hamburgers, buns, cheese & salad. He even left me the remainders to contribute to my no food buying for the month. What a great guy! I’m now using the cheese & buns he brought for my meals on Day 10.
Day 10 – Donated ingredients
For breakfast I made an egg, cheese, kale & onion sandwich.
Lunch was a can of salmon which was given to me by a friend who caught the salmon in BC & canned it sometime in the summer. This gives you an idea of how much food just sits around my place & doesn’t get eaten. I mixed the can up with a bit of mayonnaise, pepper, kale & onion & then put it in the toaster oven to make a cheese melt.
