They say it's good to repeat meal throughout the week because it prevents over eating at mealtimes because the taste is familiar. I'm not sure how true it is, but I know for me, it's all about not having to think about what I should make. When I don't repeat meals, I end up taking way longer to eat because I can't figure out what to eat. Tends to be bad for the system.
I've been really enjoying my repeat meals recently, and thought I'd share.
Savory Oatmeal - Spicy Cheese
Oatmeal made with 2% milk, mixed with string cheese and chipotle Tabasco sauce with pepper.

Tuna Dip Salad
Spring mix salad with tuna dip. Tuna dip is light tuna in water [drained], liquid smoke, chipotle hot sauce, sour cream, mayo, and pepper.

Normally I don't add the mayo, especially since it's on the no-no list for bringing down cholesterol, but this week I felt like a treat. I was using the extra 180 calories to reach my net calories for the day, which is proving difficult because of my tendency to panic when I hit 500 calories. It's beyond ridiculous, but it stems from when I first had to go on the 1200 cal diet a few years ago and worrying that going over the 1200 would mean I would get the heart attack or stroke my doctor threatened me with. Not to mention, I seemed to hit 500 by lunch.  Yes, they gave me a diet, but it was really big on fish, and I hate fish. Yes, I'm aware that tuna is fish, but salmon is nasty ad I refuse to eat it :D

anywhoos, I'm procrastinating packing and I need to.
