Shrimp stir-fry over cauliflower rice. 12/26/20

As I promised myself, I stopped eating out of control on Saturday. So while John was enjoying more lasagna I made a vegetable laden stir-fry with a few shrimp and served it over cauliflower rice. I made a lot so I would feel satisfied because after you have been overeating you are hungrier than you normally are. It is a cycle that you have to pay attention to and break.

Stir-fry shrimp and vegetables over cauliflower rice

I seasoned my plethora of vegetables with soy sauce and a little sesame oil and finished the dish with some sriracha for spiciness. I can report that if you don’t mix cauliflower rice with regular rice, it doesn’t taste or have the mouth-feel of rice. Anyway I gained about four pounds enjoying my juggernaut into everything I like best. As of Sunday morning I have lost two or them so I figure in another couple of days I should be back to weighing what I want.

Just a word of caution, if you have been overeating it is time to stop. It is very easy to lose a temporary weight gain and much harder to do so if that gain is not short-lived. Be sure to fill this week coming up with lots of vegetables and lean proteins. I am drawing up my weekly menu today and I plan a low-calorie elegant meal for New Year’s Eve and a pared down traditional dish for New Year’s Day. End the terrible old year and begin the hopeful new year off right!!
