It got cold again today! [yea... thanks Captain Obvious] I went to work to finish off the week and the boyfriend went to play a golf tournament. Since I had a half day at work I thought it would be a nice surprise for Matt to come home to a hot comforty soup after being outside in this gloom all morning. I have made faux mashed potatoes many times and LOVED it so why not a hearty loaded soup, minus the crazy restaurant calories. This past week of getting bikini ready was intense. I have been really kicking it up a notch in the gym. I have been doing boot camp, strength training, runing and yoga. I am just yearning for my yoga class on Sunday, I need to stretch! And to breathe. And to recharge. I love it though, I love getting crazy at the gym and then having that sore, "can't sit down or move" feeling. I feel like it's so motivating to feel that feeling cus you are constantly reminded to make healthy food choices. -leg cramp-"PUT DOWN THAT COOKIE!" *single tear* ......Don't forget to follow me on twitter and Instagram @tinytaster407 and Facebook http://Facebook.com/tinytaster......
Not to worry, I am just being this super strict for the next month, then I will go back to my normal healthy, balanced lifestyle. I could never go through life without some little indulgences here and there ;) Let me tell you though, this soup tastes like an indulgence. I almost have to keep reminding myself it's mostly cauliflower cus it tastes like full on potato soup. With all the full fat trimmings. REMINDER: ITS NOT FULL FAT. MUST REMEMBER. ITS GOOD FOR YOU. I PROMISE! STOP FORGETTING!
Matt got home to some "amazing smells". He chowed down on this baby like nobody's business! He might kill me for posting this picture lol. I didn't tell him it was healthy at all, I wanted to see his reaction. He said it was so thick, creamy and hearty and loved it! He didn't even complain about the turkey bacon! (the man loves his regular bacon like whoa). When I told him the soup was mostly cauliflower and not potato, he couldn't believe it! He said the same thing I did, you can't even taste or smell or anything cauliflower! Seriously, I can't wait till I have kids so I can fool them like this... I love it :P
There's one more tournament day left for Matt tomorrow morning, I'm heading out with him to check it out. I love watching him play, its kinda hot. Like my soup. Cheesy, bacony, creamy, souuuup. Are you ready for this? Have you forgotten already that its good for you? I promise you will when you taste it. Stop feeling guilty you ninnymuggins! jk love you :)
