Genius in the kitchen?

Friday's lunch consisted of baked zucchini, green onion, jalapeno and yellow hot mixed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar over brown rice.

As Bridget Jones once said: Have a sneaking suspicion … am also something of a genius in the kitchen …

So this week I think I have been pretty good with being on a plan to eat healthy and keep up with exercise.

I started back at yoga on Monday. Practiced yoga Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Went to the gym today for two hours of spin, abs and body conditioning.

On Thursday I had a work dinner, which consisted of wine, appetizers and an amazing dinner. Probably the only super unhealthy item I had was the delicious mushroom ravioli. Wow, was it good!

Since Thursday was a higher calorie dinner I am trying to be aware and careful for the rest of the week (and I was careful coming up into Thursday).

I had dinner plans with some girlfriends last night. We had Chinese and I knew I could be OK with steamed veggies and brown rice.

For lunch yesterday I was craving something with balsamic vinegar. It’s one of my new “seasoning” obsessions. I found stuff in the fridge: zucchini, green onion, jalapeno and  yellow hot. I cut them all up and mixed with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar and baked in the toaster over for about 15 minutes. I ate over brown rice, which had a little extra balsamic poured over. Man, was it good. I can rarely just throw something together and it tastes brilliant. But this really did. And it was low calorie, filling and healthy.

I think I called my inner Bridget “Genius in the Kitchen” Jones. If you haven’t seen the movie (or read the book) you must.
