Coconut oil, tons of ginger, hot peppers, garlic, onion, frozen spinach, chickpeas and some salsa. Super good. Want another bowl. Good thing I froze the rest.

These photos look great, and the recipes sound wonderful, but what's up with the titles of the posts? Why is that necessary?

Wow, you guys are the third people who have taken offense to my title..

hmmm.. I certainly don't want to hurt anyones feelings.

The reason I have dubbed it Operation Fat asparagus Reduction is because I am in a huge battle with my weight and have recently started eating 4 mini meals of 400 calories each .. so each of these meals is part of my "battle".. I have a somewhat immature sense of humor and it helps me to not take things too seriously.

I haven't written too many details about my weight .. but I am about halfway through losing a very large amount of weight. My highest weight was 300 lbs. I am halfway to my goal weight now.. and I'm having to change things up and figure out new ways to get the weight off ( especially now that I'm not on my feet 8 + hours a day ).. so that's why I have titled my December food, Operation Fat asparagus Reduction.

..but. I'd love to move this discussion to the Parlor and continue the discussion if anyone wants ( drama free and respectful of course ).. because it really surprised me that anyone was offended!

Melomeals, I just feel like the term "fat asparagus" is pretty derogatory and could be substituted with something less fat-phobic. For instance, "Operation Healthy Meals" or something more clever, but I think you get the idea.

Agree! No reason to trash anyone else while you attempt to lose weight.

I don't think I was trashing anyone else.

I'm sorry to hijack the thread, but I have to disagree with you, Melomeals. The term "fat asparagus" is definitely trashing those who indeed have a large bum. I know that sounds silly, but it's word choices like these that strengthen the widespread fear/shaming/disgust with obesity in our society.
I understand you're trying to lose weight and applaud that. So if you want to emphasize that your meals are good for weight loss, so just call them healthy, fat-free, or whatever. However, there's no reason to make what to you may seem a "silly" joke about a fat asparagus that genuinely hurts someone else. Fat asparaguses (asparagi?) have feelings too ;)
/end hijack
