After a dip in the hot tub and several days drying out, my camera has survived. I was really happy I didn’t have to spend the money on a new one right now, but kinda disappointed that I am not forced to upgrade right now. Oh well, onward to my eats. Here’s my dinner from the other night, pre hot tub swim:
Chimichurri steak with a lighter version of cheesy potatoes and broccoli. It was great except I over did it on the chimichurri sauce. A little goes a long way. I lightened up the potatoes by using reduced fat cheese and milk.
Recipe is from Sept/Oct issue of Clean Eating magazine:
-20 sprigs of parsley
-5 sprigs of cilantro
-4 cloves of garlic
-2 T red wine vinegar
-1 T vegetable broth
-1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
-1/4 tsp sea salt
Whirl it all up in a food processor.
Today’s breakfast was my usual:
I never used to like oatmeal until I discovered what peanut butter and bananas do to it. Now I eat it like every day. (P.S. This is an old photo, as my camera was not working this morning). And for lunch, no camera. It was a low sodium ham sandwich on a bagel thin with low-fat swiss cheese, Smart Balance mayo, mustard and pickles with a side of carrots and hummus.
For dinner, I grilled up a cajun seasoned pork loin and served it with mango salsa and leftover cheesy taters, and a little broccoli.
For the mango salsa, I chopped a mango, tomato,avocado, half a cucumber (no seeds), quarter of a red onion, 2 T of cilantro, and mixed it up with salt, pepper, the juice of a lime, and some diced jalapeno (from a jar cuz that’s what I had).
Events of the day:
Worked from 9:30-3:00. Went to the gym and logged 3 miles on the treadmill. Not the most eventful day I guess, but it was a good one.
After the gym, I snacked on 2 Wasa crackers with melted reduced fat swiss cheese.
Things I’m grateful for today:
My mom, my job, my family, my friends, feeling great, the ability to see possibilities. What are you grateful for today??????
