Gluten Free-er & Cleaner: Day 3

The highlight of my today today is preparing for a big steakhouse style dinner.  After having soup last night and leftovers the night before, the family was ready.  I even made an appetizer for those that were coming home from work. It was cold and blizzard- y out there...our first day of Spring.  I spent all day in the kitchen.

Summary & highlights:
Yesterday was ok...I did not eat breakfast.  Well at least not a traditional one.  I wanted to retake a photo from yesterday and I ended up eating my White Chicken Chili for breakfast!  It was so good.   Then I spent most of the day cooking and snacking on vegetables.  I made a HUGE chopped salad that I ate for lunch and served with  dinner.  I  made a homemade buttermilk ranch dressing that everyone really liked. I also prepped dinner during lunch so I snacked a lot on the ingredients....mostly vegetables.  I had defrosted a London Broil and marinated it early on in the day. So I was preparing for a big dinner. 
Dinner was fabulous but I ended my evening with 3 oreos.  I've been bad every day.  I can't kick my sweet tooth and I have NO SELF CONTROL.  That is the real issue.  As they say on "The Next Iron Chef..."you've survived to cook another day," so I too will continue to make the most of my days and cook healthy meals that will, hopefully, offset some of my bad choices.
