Darn it! I am determined to Rock my Abs by Summer! That means, LOTS of CLEAN EATING on my plate for the next 6-8 weeks.
First off, I want to thank all of you for the awesome support & praise received from my completion of the 12-week Body for Life program! Please, please, enter for your chance to win a $50 SpaFinder Gift Certificate. It’s my way of saying, “thank you”.
Let’s get to the eats
Early Breakfast: Cinnamon-Raisin Yoatz topped with Blackberries (my mom brought a ton of fruit during Easter. I am enjoying all the leftovers).
MidMorning Breakfast: Oatmeal, Cottage Cheese, Berries, and granola. Doesn’t it look SO yummy? It really is.
Pre-lunch Workout (not shown – but trust me, it kicked butt – it was Shoulders/Back day)
Post-workout Lunch: Fiesta bowl with whole pinto beans, pork, cilantro, onion, lettuce and salsa. (tortilla shell not eaten). I know pork is not the leanest meat, but the chicken just didn’t look that good.
Snack: Vega Chocolate Performance Protein (not shown)
Dinner (Monday night): I had to share. Putting lemon curry quinoa on this green salad made it 100% tastier! Okay, maybe not 100%, but it was really delicious when combined with the chicken and dried cranberries and carrots. I received the lemon curry quinoa as a sample from ExpoWest – Naturals Product Expo and decided it was a perfect night to cook it up. Boy! I love when my intuition is right on in regards to food combos. This brand of Quinoa is from American Roland Food Co. Mmm – mmm.
Dinner (Tuesday Night): Last night, I tweeted what I wanted to make for dinner. And man, my food intuition was right on again! This is Wheat Berries Salad with edamame, walnuts, green onions, dried cranberries, leftover chicken (from last night’s dinner), and an gorgeous Orange Vinaigrette.
Tasting the vinaigrette by itself was potent due to the vinegar I added. But mixed in the salad – perfecto! I devoured dinner.
Where did I get the recipe? From the Recipe Finder page I recently created. It includes the sites - Oatmealinmybowl.com, TastyKitchen.com, SimplyRecipes.com and MyRecipes.com. Is there any other sites I should add to it?
I used the Orange Vinaigrette recipe from the MyRecipes site.
What’s on your plate?
I am totally enjoying getting creative in the kitchen again.
Thanks, Jenn for another awesome What I ate Wednesday!
