Week one is officially over. 7 days of clean eating under my belt. 7 more days to go. Although, would it be crazy for me to continue for another 2 week plan? My husband might think I am crazy. He has supported me throughout this entire process and has even joined in on the fun. But I figure, we’ve already come this far, why not try another 2 weeks? Let’s see how the next week goes and I’ll let you know what our decision is. In the meantime, here are today’s eats…
Turkey and Egg Muffin: 1 whole wheat English muffin toasted, topped with 1 egg and 2 egg whites scrambled, cherry tomatoes and 2 oz deli turkey
1 carrot stick, 1 stalk celery, 1/2 cucumber
Tuna Sandwich: 5 oz white albacore tuna, 1 stalk celery minced, 1/8 red onion minced, 3 tbsp Greek yogurt, 1 tsp Dijon atop 2 slices Ezekiel Bread and Romaine lettuce.
1 tbsp walnuts
2 cups Summer Pasta Salad
4 oz chicken breast
2 cups kale sautéed with a dash of vegetable broth, shallots and red onion
Highlights: Breakfast was filling and delicious! Normally not a fan of tomatoes on sandwiches, the cherry tomatoes brought a nice sweetness to the eggs. Definitely a combination I will try again. And having a peach sliced on the side, pretty much made my day :)
Lowlights: Not a total bummer, but the tuna sandwich wasn’t nearly as good as what I usually make. I can whip up a mean tuna sandwich, but tuna melt’s might be my specialty. Some melted sharp cheddar cheese would have done this sandwich wonders. Guess a girl can dream!
After completing my first week of Clean Eating, I am feeling very proud of myself. Although there is a lot of work involved (shopping, planning and sometimes…eating), everything has gone pretty smoothly. After peeking at week 2, I am looking forward to some new dishes. Can’t wait to share them with you.
Hope everyone has a great week! Thank God it’s Monday :)
