Trying to eat healthy sure can be discouraging...especially when lunch looks like the dogs!


New year new me! Ugh. Trying to lose weight is such a bitch. I'm trying though. Eating less, exercising more - the basics. Then, to be super good, I'm trying to eat the good carbs. Like quinoa and beans.

I recently found myself next door to Lois' Natural Marketplace in Scarborough. I love Lois'! They make healthy food taste delicous! I was hunting for something with quinoa, because I didn't feel like cooking some when I got home. Plus I was starving and just wanted to eat! I couldn't find quinoa...but I did find mujadara. Mujawhata? I had to look it up. It's an Arabic meal with tons of variations, but they all basically have cooked lentils together with rice, and garnished with sautéed onions. Sounds yummy.

But when I was making myself lunch, I was also feeding the dogs and cats. That's when I noticed. Mmmmm. Whose is whose?


For the record, my mujadara is on the left and Casco's bland, good for your tummy wet food is on the right.

Sometimes watching what you eat is slightly...uh, jarring. Not mujarring...just jarring.

For the record, the consistancy is off putting, but the mujadara was tasty.
