Challenge: Days 9 & 10


Day  9 –  I didn’t really track things so well. I was just too busy. That said, I stuck to the Challenge pretty well. I made a beautiful Heirloom Red Spinach Salad and added the leftover beef, a few mushrooms, and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It was a perfect lunch.

Day 10 – I have been counting tomatoes as vegetables, but really should be counting them as fruit, so I’m switching over starting today.

Tonight for dinner I sauteed a little bit of thinly sliced fresh fennel in a non-stick pan. Then I lightly seared a piece of beautiful wild-caught cod filet. I put the fennel back in the pan, then the fish, and then topped it with about a cup of the Tomato Fennel Sauce  I made earlier in the week. Cover, reduce to low, and gently simmer until it’s thoroughly warmed through and the fish is nice and flaky. It was really good! Light, healthy, and delicious. I served it with 1/2 cup whole grain rice blend. So, that’s protein, carbs, veggies and fruit!

* 2 1/2 cups vegetables
* 3 cup fruit
* 1 cups protein
* 1 1/2 cups carbs
* 1/4 cup healthy cheese (“light”)
* 2 tablespoons nuts

Something close to that. I’m not quite getting this right according to the 21-Day Fix, but … I’m not really following that. I’m just using that a a loose guideline.

Today was a spectacular weather day. I wish I could have been out on my bike riding. I’m conflicted. I really want beautiful weather so I can ride, but we really desperately need rain.
