Back in the Kitchen!!!

Yippeee I’m back in the kitchen whipping things up!  Feel’s so good.

That stomach flu was a bad one- whew.. I cant imaging if my calories were at 1750 right now.. my stomach seems to have shrunk and I get full super fast… Oh well.. thank goodness for 1600 Cals! and at least I hit my protein intake ( 100g)! WOO HOO!

Side note:The other night I went out to dinner, and had an amazing roasted artichoke. ooh so good, I think it had olive oil drizzled over it with a bit of sea salt, it was served with an aioli sauce. By nature I am a purist when it comes to Artichokes, they are my favorite veggie and I can eat them everyday. My preferred way to eat them is steamed. I simply turn them upside down in the steamer add some mint to the water and wait til they are soft. Usually about 30-45 mins depending on the size.Dip them in a lemon-butter mixture ( mainly lemon for me) and YUUUMMM!!!

I will be adding roasted artichokes to my menu!

I went shopping today, and got some carrots and will be juicing daily to help eliminate the food that I ate while out of town. Whew… ( TMI? – stop reading, this blog is about what I am doing to improve my health!)

 

On to my day and what I put in my tummy!

B~ Blueberries, Coconut milk, Garden of Life Protein Drink, greek style yogurt, Dagboa Cacao powder. C 364/  P35.5

S – Iced tall non-fat chai ( bad habit I fell back into.) C-150/ P-5

L- I was shopping at Whole Foods and realized it was lunch time so I picked up one of their lunch kits!  Tuna Salad, Potato Salad and mini whole wheat pitas  with a Honest Tea Moroccan Mint Green tea. C 387/ P 14.5

I normally chose a meat style kit, however I was at a different WF location and they do not have the same selection as my normal store. In fact I usually get annoyed when I go to the Folsom location, they have limited supply and are not as friendly as Roseville.. But that is my opinion..

S – 3 slices Monterey Jack Cheese -C 240/P15

D- I was in need of a MONSTER SALAD!

Spicy Chicken, Beets,Broccoli, Cauliflower,Zuchinni,Mushrooms, Bell Pepper ( red. yellow and green) Baby spinach and mixed greens, pea sprouts, and a drizzle of chipotle ranch dressing   C427.75/P33.51

HM Smores on a stick!!!  I used the homemade version of Magic Shell to make these yummy lil tidbits!  Vegan marshmallows cut in half then put on a stick. dip in the chocolate and roll in crushed graham crackers ( cals per 2 /89 P- .75)

Total – 1592/P 102
