Disgusting Dinner

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

For the past some weeks I've been using recipes from Dr. Fuhrman's book and website. And so far everything had been delicious. Until last night that is. Last night I made Broccoli Rabe and Wild Rice. It sounded delicious. Well let me tell you it was disgusting. Bitter and sour at the same time. It was inedible. It also had chopped red pepper and edamame in it. Well, I picked at the edamame and tried to get a decent amount of food by avoiding the broccoli rabe. But my husband and daughter decided to call out for a pizza delivery. DH asked me what I wanted and I told him "Nothing....I'm not eating it". I had a hand full of strawberries after "dinner" and felt satisfied. But that pizza called to my mind. So I asked my daughter for a bite. She tried to talk me into eating a whole slice and I said "NO, I just want a bite".

So I took my bite. And ....well. It tasted greasy. Slimy. Altogether disappointing. So I guess I'm ruined for pizza now in the way my husband had been ruined for donuts. I guess that is a good thing.

And the best part was that this morning I was 2 pounds down from where I'd been. So that is a great victory and I feel a lot better about having a bad dinner. I just wish my husband had toughed it out. Today he told me he needs to get back on the diet which probably means he's having chest pain. I don't know what it will take for him to learn. I hope it won't take a heart attack.

    Sorry you had such a disappointing dinner :( That is great progress not liking a pizza!! Very well done! At least most of the recipes have been good. No one is going to like everything they see in a cook book, that is for sure. Hope your next one is way better!

    I hate it when a recipe doesn't meet my expectations. Way to go skipping the pizza!
