Yesterday was Day 1. The only thing they recommend that you change is supper. I tried to eat healthier all day, but I admit, I failed a few times. I guess it is good that it starts out slowly!
We started the meal with a green salad - lettuce, red peppers, cucumbers, bean sprouts, celery (TR had mushrooms too) with oil based dressings. I need to get a better dressing, but these were the best I could do for yesterday. (greek feta and orgegano and italian)
After the salad we had the main course which turned out awesome! The meat dish was one I've done before, but this time I made some healthy adjustments and WOW! It was even better. Here's what we ate:
Anne's Fabulous Grilled Chicken (recipe originally calls for Salmon)
Brown Basmati Rice (bought at our drug store)
Lightly steamed broccoli
Instead of soy sauce on the rice I just made extra sauce that the chicken was in, instead of margarine on the broccoli we used butter. Instead of regular salt, we used sea salt.
So here is the recipe for the chicken. I found it on www.allrecipes.com
1 tbsp vegetable oil (I used butter)
1 tbsp soy sauce (I used organic REAL soy sauce from our drug store)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (I omitted this)
1 lemon, juiced.
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger root (so much better than powder!)
2 tbsp honey
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves (straight from my garden :)
1 tbsp finely chopped shallots (I used fresh onions and their greens from my garden)
1 (3 pound) salmon fillet, with skin (I used pieces of chicken)
And then for dessert we had organic blueberries I got from the grocery store with whipped cream sweetened with real vanilla extract and real maple syrup (just a tad of this)
It was amazing. And I actually had some energy when supper was over. I really liked the three course thing. Didn't plan it that way, the supper just took longer than I had anticipated (the brown rice took longer to cook than the stuff I usually used) so we had the salad first, and we don't usually have dessert, but it was nice. It was a good incentive for Chloe to finish her meal, and it was a good way to end a good meal.
Now I have to go, my stomach is growling and I'm anxious to try my organic apple with my almond butter :)
