Starting to see more and more research and information on the merrits of having a food intake based on lean meats , vegetables and fruits. Let me know if you would like links or info.
Had some grilled mahi left over from last night, so made it into a “mahi salad” sorta like tuna salad only better and fresher. Mahi, spoon full of vegenaise, thin sliced celery (a lot of it) and 4/5 organic cherry tomatoes. some fresh cracked pepper. Accompanied with large handful of grapes.
What’s your opinion of this blog? Helpful, inspirational, boring? Would love to know either way.
Lunch, Grilled natural chicken thighs (try this marinade; some olive oil, fresh garlic, pepper and some chardonnay) huge portion of sauteed spinach with garlic and a few cherry tomatoes. I was hungry 😉
Just as an FYI, I don’t have time to grill in the middle of the day, not retired….yet. But grilled those chicken thighs the night before with the Mahi. A little planning really helps, if you are deciding to try and eat this way.
Dinner; small grilled piece of fresh scrod. (again a marinade for you; a tablespoon of honey, some tamari sauce (soy sauce will do, but more flavor from the tamari and you don’t need to use as much) splash of rice vinegar, splash of sesame oil) together with a salad consisting of red leaf letuce, cucumber, and some tomato. 2 glasses of red wine.
Happy memorial day! Hope that most of you will enjoy a relaxing 3 day weekend.
Breakfast; short on time. 4 boiled eggs, some hot sauce and 7 baby carrots
cup of coffee.
After yesterday’s restaurant feasts, was happy to have my home cooked meals.
Took it light for the day.
Breakfast; some left over grilled chicken breast. one small avocado.
Lunch; grapes and some walnuts
the weather is starting to get hotter here, so drinking a little more and eating a little less. (not much though)
Can you feel it??????? Smile a lot today…..and see what happens.
Marinated grilled natural chicken breast, some endive, spinach and carrots.
Very satisfying after my morning workout….anybody ever work with those plastic discs you stand on?
Green salad with green beans with seared tuna. (at a restaurant, just told them to hold all dressings and sauces.)
It was a “client entertainment day” so after lunch…….had to have dinner in a restaurant also.
Upscale steak house; ( pretty easy to eat healthy in those) I couldn’t resist the temptation; I had a nice steak with steamed broccoli, steamed asparagus. Glass of red wine. When you eat out, try not to eat the big portions. A usual steak is between 12 and 16 ounces, it’s way to much. train yourself to eat half of that.
Well that’s what this morning looked like anyway…..thank you Bob Marley for the lyrics.
Breakfast; some crab legs (so easy, boil water 3 minutes ..done) to make a yummy salad with.
In a bowl combine; Aspargus cut up (about 4 stalks) 1/4 cucumber, a little bit of red pepper, 2 scallions, 6 baby carrots, some red leaf lettuce. Dressing, a teaspoon o vegenaise, teaspoon olive oil, table spoon roasted garlic balsamic vinegar. a little sliver of habanero pepper cut up. mix together. Wow right???????? Well, at least I was excited about it this morning….
Grilled piece sea bass over a green salad, with tomato, red onion. I had this at a simple local seafood restaurant/store. Even a business lunch can be healthy……………wanna know what my client ate?
was on the later side due to hectic work and kids schedule; had some almonds late afternoon to tie me over. Dinner was one small avocado, one natural ground turkey breast patty (approx 2 ounces) just quickly sauteed in some olive oil. (if you make it flat, it cooks quickly without drying out) handul of raw spinach, drizzled with some red pepper/shallot dressing. ( real simple to make) One big glass of red wine.
I love garlic……but sometimes feel bad for my coworkers and the mosquitos here in Florida.
It’s amazing really, when I consume raw garlic (in my salad dressings), I notice a huge difference with how the little gnats effect me. No bites and hardly any landings.
Back to food.
Good breakfast about an hour after a 30 minute weight workout.
3 eggs, left over cut up chicken sausage. Some asparagus, some salad, yellow pepper and some garlic hot sauce. spicy and very tasty.
Lunch; some left over grass fed beed, spinach salad, cucumbers, scallions, red pepper and garlic/olive oil dressing
Spicy cole slaw, red and green cabbage (spicy is just a little habanero pepper cut up)
Avocado, tomato and some almonds. Watermelon for dessert.
3 slices of cantelope, 3 strawberries, a few pieces of pineapple and 3 boiled eggs.
for more info on feel good eating.
Grilled chicken breast, with some strawberries, mango slices, and an apple cut up. Very satisfying after my morning workout. Cup of black coffee also.
Ate it at me desk. People walking into my office say almost ridiculingly (is that a word?…should be) “Is that breakfast?!”
Cup of coffee for breakfast, with some watermelon (it’s so sweet right now, just tasting right )
almonds. wasn’t all that hungry
Played some tennis before lunch, and druing the match had a some small bites of watermelon.
I offered it to the other 3 playeers, but they were worried it would upset their stomach, so they drank their gatorades instead. hmmmm.
Late lunch, was hungry. Made a large turkey burger. (ground turkey breast) cut up onion, add some olive and make patty, don’t grill on heat to high, or it will dry out. Cut up bok choy, celery and carrots to have with it.
nice red leaf lettuce salad with cucumber, tomato and home made dressing. Small piece of grilled halibut. Glass of red wine
Breakfast 4 boiled eggs, one yolk. a few almonds. some cantelope, some mango slices, some apple slices.
Lunch; grilled chicken breasts (one trick to delicious NOT DRY variety, marinate in lime juice overnight, then add marinade of choice for another few hours. homemade is best) cut up bok choy, celery, asparagus and a small tomato. mix together. the veggies are raw as the chicken is nice and warm, makes for a great contrast.
