Started today by planning some meals! This always works for me. I'm definitely someone who does better when i know what i'm going to eat in advance.
So with the fruit and vegetable theme this week i started today with some blueberry protein waffles with blueberry sauce and a sprinkle of flax seed on top :) Yep, it hit the spot and filled me up.
Next i caught up on some blog reading and i'm trying to get the courage to go out on a verrrrrrrry verrrrrrry cold walk. (Update i did go out even if i did have to dress like an eskimo :)
Yesterday i bought a couple of ready made salads that my local grocery store makes. Now some may think this is very lazy or whatever, but for me i'm more likely to eat salads if all i have to do is grab a bowl and throw some ready made salad in. Some days i just don't want to be bothered having to put it together myself!
So for lunch today i had a salad with mixed greens and veggies, prosciutto, blue cheese and strawberries with a drizzle of light raspberry dressing on top :) Yummo
Dinner tonight was some chicken, stuffing, gravy, cranberries and carrots. Altogether i've completed day 1 of 5 fruit and veggies :)
How many fruits and veggies did you get in today?
Oh and now for the giveaway, you thought i forgot??
Anyway Sterling Publishing Co of NY asked if i'd like to read and review their New Sonama Diet book. Well i did tell them i don't do "diets" but i do try to eat as healthy as possible. And i love how the book promotes power foods of blueberries, almonds, beans, peppers, broccoli, citrus fruits, grapes, olive oil, spinach, strawberries, tomatoes and whole grains!! Oh and since Sonoma is wine country they encourage wine in moderation :) So i told them that i'm always looking for more information on how to eat healthy and that i'd love to read the book.
Well they not only said great, but they sent two copies one for me and one for you!! So for anyone who joins us in this weeks challenge at the end of the week i'll make a random draw from our names and gladly send you a copy of the book. Good luck! It doesn't matter how successful or not with the challenge you are, all names will go in the draw.
