Scary picture alert. This is the face you make when your Deep-S-Superfood-Diet-Soup-With-Coconut-Oil-And-Spinach doesn’t turn out like you planned. And it makes a huge serving bowlful, and you’re eating it with a serving spoon. Photo creds to my sister Katelyn.
It’s back, guys! When I was trying to think up some helpful posts for all the Trim Healthy Mama newbies starting in January, I figured that nothing could be more helpful than showing them what a veteran eats in a week’s time. On the other hand, it might scare them away permanently. Oh well, all my old faithful readers are still here, right? Right, guys??? Hey! Come back!!
So WOMP (my nifty acronym for “What’s on My Plate?”) is back! The posting schedule might be a little wonky for awhile, though. I plan to post another episode next Wednesday, but I’m heading to Lancaster, PA, on Thursday for a weekend rehearsal for the group I’m heading to South Africa with in February (we’re doing a singing mission trip). From Lancaster I’m heading over to Holmes County, OH, to do press checks for a book reprint. I’m praying for good weather because this southerner has never driven in snow…. Anyway, while I’m out and about I won’t be bothering to take pictures of all my food (my friends think I’m weird enough already), but when I get back I’ll start WOMP up again for a few weeks until I head to PA and from there, South Africa, for three weeks in February.
Something monumental has occurred since the last WOMP post: I broke down and bought a smartphone! Even though the picture quality isn’t great, it does make taking pictures for WOMP easier, which means I’m more likely to continue doing posts like this.
If you’re new here, these “What’s on My Plate?” posts are meant to give you inspiration and show you just how easy healthy eating can be! They are not professionally-styled photo shoots, nor do they necessarily catalogue everything I ate in a week’s time. These posts aren’t meant to be guides for serving size or anything like that. I don’t always have everything on my plate at the beginning of the meal when I get my camera out (and I don’t always get my camera out, period). Please just use these posts as inspiration for what to eat, not how much to eat.

(E) Oatmeal with cocoa powder and sweetener, half a sliced banana
(Deep S) I ate a lot of heavy food over the holidays, so I had soup a lot this week. I was experimenting with Deep S soups, but none of them quite turned out as planned. This particular beauty was made with beef broth, spinach, coconut oil, and seasonings. And it made a huge bowlful. And it wasn’t that good.
(Deep S) Another Deep S concoction I called “Chinese Diet Soup”. Chicken broth, kelp noodles, spinach, seasonings, and a poached egg…and it wasn’t that great either.
(Deep S) Leftover Chinese Diet Soup with some cauliflower and spaghetti squash leftovers
(S) Hamburger with Swiss cheese and ketchup, celery and Ranch dip, spaghetti squash with butter
(S) Leftover Japanese chicken (recipe coming soon!) over spaghetti squash
(S) Melt sandwiches made with Joseph’s lavash bread, leftover roast beef, and cheese
(S) Spaghetti meat (hamburger and pizza sauce) with green peas + Parmesan and steamed cauliflower + cheddar. Dad and the kids had regular pasta with their spaghetti meat.
(S) Mommy’s Meatloaf with ketchup, steamed broccoli, salad with feta and thinned-down sriracha Ranch (which means that there was a little bit of Ranch dressing in the bottle, so I added some water to thin it down – less calories – and a squirt of sriracha)
(Deep S) leftover green diet soup
(E) Greek yogurt with sliced banana
(Very light S) I’m working on some Greek yogurt variations which will be appearing in a post soon, so you’ll get more details then. This is a Key Lime Pie version.
(S) peanut butter Greek yogurt – details coming in later post
(FP) vanilla Greek yogurt – details coming in later post
(E) Very odd midnight snack: black beans with ketchup and some seasonings. Eaten hot. It was actually pretty good. This picture made me laugh – see my feet in the bottom left corner. How did that even happen?
(S) Leftover Brianafinger Ice Cream – with more peanut butter, because why not?
(S) Blueberry Custard Bars – double batch baked by my mom
