Jour Deux (If I write it in French, it makes me sound classy and stuff)

 Oh yeah. I'm rockin' this shiz.

Breakfast: 1 whole egg, 1 egg white, crushed tomatoes, onion, garlic, spinach, mushrooms, and 1 piece of whole wheat toast. This is an adaptation of a way that my Nonna makes eggs - her version has champignons, garlic, her sauce, whole eggs, and lashings of olive oil with toasted italian bread. POINTS: 4

Something I've learned - eggs do not photograph well. Regardless, I have long appreciated eggs for their more important qualities. Like the fact that they taste awesome.

Snack: Organic Greek caramel yogurt w/ 1 banana, 1 strawberry, sprinkled with cinnamon. POINTS: 4

Mmmm.. cinnamonny.
Lunch: 2 Wasa crackers w/ roasted butternut, sliced chicken breast, baby spinach, and diced roma tomatoes.  Served with some leftover cauliflower bake. POINTS: 5


Snack: 1 Wasa cracker w/ spinach and avocado cream cheese spread. POINTS: 3

Another example of aesthetic qualities falling well short of depicting the true tastegasms one goes through when munching on this.

Dinner: Sauteed zucchini ribbons w/ garlic, served with bolognese sauce (97% lean ground beef, garlic, onions, grated carrot, parsley, & chopped baby spinach), topped with parmesan, and a touch of garlic chili oil. which is fabulous and I highly recommend. ;) POINTS: 6

This was heaven. I've had pasta with zucchini ribbons many times, but this tasted like something my Nonna made. Pure tastebud delight.

If you see this, buy it.

Exercise: 30 minutes of Jenny, 115 crunches. POINTS Earned: 3

  1. I'm finding that, by looking at your meals, I'm missing out on this whole world of spices I never realized was there before. Everything you eat gets a sprinkle of something on top--fancy AND delicious!

    I need to get me a Jenny. Unfortunately, she'd probably spend most of her time conversing with the EA Active trainer who's been out of work for so long now. Gotta find that motivation...and it will NOT be jumping over fire!

  2. TB - I'd die without my spices and touches of this or that!! and also, you made both the lion and me crack up with your comment about Jenny and your EA trainer. Thanks! :)

    Lurker - Thank you! You really did make me smile!


I want to know if you're out there. Type "Lurker" in the comment box anonymously if you have nothing to say, and make me smile! Smiles are the hugs you can give strangers! (Well you could hug strangers, but there's the possibility of getting arrested for assault if you try it.)
