I love my dehydrator, so I’m sharing one of my favorite pictures: onions and basil leaves on the same tray. I made these for the delicious pizza trail mix I shared last week.
Last night, though. Oof.
After waking up like literally 8 times last night in 6 hours with lower leg cramps (I’ve annoyed my front leg muscle), I was grumpy, sleep deprived, cold, frustrated and ate 10 wheat crackers with organic onion dip. Granted, it was only a few gourmet crackers in the scheme of snacky things. I also had about 3/4 cup of pistachio nuts (in their shells. I took the shells off), along with a few cucumber slices and a couple cherry tomatoes.
Forgive me, butt cheeks, for I have secretly snacked.
Honestly, I’m not going to be melodramatic here. It’s no big deal to have a few gourmet, cracked pepper crackers when I think of what I could have eaten (especially over the course of the new year) and what I actually had. I’m just glad I didn’t wake up with hair on my tongue.
The craziest thing of all? While I attempted fitful sleep, my husband was next to me watching Pro Wrestling’s greatest take downs. I repeatedly woke up to guys in costumes getting thrown down, pounced on and jackknifed. It was like my living room during a Cub Scout meeting.
Thankfully, no hecklers were smacked or thrown in either instance.
Now on to how I’ve been doing with my weight loss and continued sussing out of foods to which I’m intolerant or allergic to… Be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled share my progress and thoughts, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian).

I ate this:
Breakfast: Nothing. I slept in because of lack of sleep.
Lunch: Sausage patties, cherry tomatoes and feta cheese
Dinner: Taco Star Chipless Chicken Nachos (3/4 of the meal)
Notes: My son has been telling me for weeks now to have them give me chicken instead of beef, and wow! Love it! So I’ll stick with beef on Mondays and chicken on Fridays. The chicken is tremendous with the no-chips, and the heavy beef makes the chips a nice addition.
What I learned:
I am learning to schedule my time better. Ever so slightly. We’ll see if I really can pull it together.
