My motivation has gone into hiding too, that little sneak! Sure, we all have days where we'd love to dive headfirst into a pizza, but we just can't do that anymore! Just gotta get creative with what we CAN have, and there is a huge pile of things that we can!
My go-to meal right now is basically a frittata - eggs, lean protein (ham or turkey, seasoned however I feel that day), tons of veggies, baked in the oven - super easy and delicious!
Oh, and Mexican doesn't have to be evil! I make chicken fajitas all the time, but wrap them in lettuce instead of tortillas - all the flavour, none of the badness!
As for restaurants, I do feel your pain. I live in a very small town, and their idea of a salad is $10 for lettuce with mayo on top. Seriously. And everything is served with fries, if you ask for salad they look at you like you have 3 heads. And forget getting veggies instead, *if* they have any, it's always carrots.
It really is all about planning ahead - if we have to eat out, then I get the chicken and take off all the skin, and eat a big plate of veggies before or after.
We can do this!
