First day of Week 2, and I’m feeling good (I also can’t get this Michael Bublé song out of my head). I always love starting something new. It inspires me and encourages me. And even though I’m smack in the middle of my Clean Eating Journey, as I begin week 2 I am refreshed and renewed.
Here is a look at what the first day of Week 2 looked like…
Fennel & Orange Salad: 1/2 bulb fennel (trimmed and sliced), 1 orange (peeled and sectioned), 4 cups arugula, 2 oz deli turkey, 1/2 cup cannellini beans (drained and rinsed). Drizzle with a mixture of 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp olive oil).
Chicken and Tomato Sauce: Saute 4 oz chicken breast (chopped) with 1 tsp olive oil, 1 clove garlic (minced) and 1 zucchini (sliced). Add 15 oz diced can tomatoes and 1/8 tsp each of dried oregano and dried basil. Cook until heated through.
Highlights: Today it’s a tie between breakfast and dinner. I was surprised at how much I liked breakfast. The thought of cottage cheese blended with peanut butter sounded strange, but the outcome was delicious! And it’s a great way to pack tons of protein into your breakfast. Dinner was delightful. It would have been even better atop some pasta, but I’ll take what I can get at this point :)
Lowlights: No lowlights today. Everything was pretty scrumptious!
While I was at the store today, picking up a few more items for meals this week and indulging myself in way too much Kleenex (I have a thing for the boxes…they are so pretty!), I happened along the new Clean Eating issue. And let me tell you…it is jam-packed with deliciousness. I am trying to convince my hubby to jump on board for another 2 week stint. We would have to take a week of in-between because we have too much going on to be on such a strict meal plan, but I’m really enjoying this journey so far and think 2 more weeks would be fun. Wish me luck on getting Freddie to join me for round 2 :)
