Genius in the kitchen?
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.
