Now that the 21DSD is complete I will continue on with the Healthy Christmas Countdown. I'll have to check on how many days until Christmas...unless anyone knows??
Goals for the HCC are:
Eat clean healthy foods
Watch my portions
Drinking lots of water
7-8 hours of sleep each night
Today's eats were delicious.
Breakfast smoothie: coconut milk, spinach, egg white protein, wheatgrass cube, frozen berries, dried unsweetened shredded coconut, flax, peanut butter, ice & a little water. It was good but I think I'll leave the pb out tomorrow.
Snack: 2 hard boiled egg whites
Lunch: Zucchini pasta w creamy avocado sauce & chicken apple sausage. OMG this is absolutely delicious!
Snack: Bacon wrapped avocado slices. Pure heaven!
Dinner: Baked chicken cutlet w/tomato, olive & fresh mozz and pumpkin tortellini. The pumpkin tortellini is yumazing! Now before the 21DSD I would've stuffed myself full of these like a Thanksgiving turkey, but nope - not now. I enjoyed my serving and there are leftovers for another day :)
After dinner I decided to take Meadow for a walk while it was still a balmy 30 degrees haha

Day 19 - Friday:
Breakfast and Lunch were same as the rest of the week.
For a snack I made a smoothie in my new Nutri-bullet. I mixed a handful of spinach, a frozen wheatgrass cube, 1/2 banana, some frozen berries, a little water & ice. The color isn't very pretty but it was tasty!
For dinner we went to the diner and I had a Farmer's Frittata (minus the potato). It was made with eggs, sausage, bacon, tomato, bell pepper, onion.
My spiralizer was delivered along with this new cookbook. It is a great cookbook. Lots of amazing recipes and there is a photo for every recipe! I can't wait to make up some menus using this book!!
Day 20 - Saturday...sorry no pics.
Breakfast: 2 eggs with bacon and sliced tomato
Didn't have lunch, just little snacks: Olives, banana, and a dark chocolate square
Dinner: Steak & steamed broccoli
Day 21 - Sunday. The last day of my 21-Day Sugar Detox! I also did a little bit of batch cooking for the short work-week. I only made lunch and snacks. For breakfast I'll be experimenting with my Nutri-bullet.
Today's Breakfast: Zesty Creamsicle Smoothie. Full fat coconut milk, banana, vanilla, zest from an orange, ice and a little bit of water
Lunch: Again, kinda picked since I got up & made the smoothie late in the morning. Olives and had to do a taste test of one of my bacon wrapped avocados ;)
While the bacon wrapped avocado baked it was time to play with the spiralizer! I spiralized some zucchini to make 'zucchini pasta with creamy avocado sauce'. You can find the recipe here: thewateringmouth.com/spiralized-zucc
Then I decided I wanted a little protein with it so I sliced & cooked up some chicken apple sausage
Also made some egg whites for snacks
Dinner: Pot roast w/sauteed brussel sprouts & apple, and onion & carrot that was cooked with the pot roast

Allergies have been in full swing this week :( My eyes are red and irritated and I have horrible dark circles under my eyes (even though I have been sleeping very well). And to top it off, last night I stabbed my eye with my thumb nail. Yeah, that was fun. It hurt so bad that both my eyes were watering. It's ok now, except for the allergies. Hopefully they'll be looking normal again soon.
Breakfast, Lunch, and Snack was the same both days
Dinner Tuesday: Shrimp & veggie stir-fry
Dinner Wednesday: Chicken sausage, tomato, avocado, and spinach
