living the “fresh” life day 22

january 25, 2012 food collage

The day started with a “killer” of a work out with Ryan, I am so glad that no one is around to hear me pant or scream in pain; the last time I remember working this hard I delivered my daughters! But, you know what they say, “that which doesn’t kill you, only makes you stronger!” I better be pretty darn strong sometime this spring!

I did my “driving exercises” and managed to get myself to go a little “further” so I took the time to stop and get my haircut, this long hair was really getting on my nerves; I’m so not a long hair kind of girl, some people just have the face for it, every time I try to grow it out, I come to the same realization, Shelley you are NOT a long hair lady! Hello bob nice to see you again!

Today marks the first day of week 4! Woo Hoo!

Daily Cuisine

Breakfast: Yellow Squash & Parmesan Cheese Quiche with Fresh Watermelon

Everyone knows by now how much I adore quiche! The flavor from the parmesan gives this quiche an extra special touch and love the squash mixed in too!

Lunch: Blue Cheese Salad with Baby Corn, Artichoke Hearts, Alfalfa Sprouts, Enoki Mushroom, Romaine Lettuce & Balsamic Vinaigrette

Bring on the Blue Cheese, Artichoke Hearts and Mushrooms, I’m in heaven! Plus the crunch crunch!

Dinner: Tender Beef Fillet with BBQ Bourbon Sauce with Red Bell Pepper Orzo and Steamed Broccoli Rapini

One thing about THE fresh diet that I am truly enjoying is all of the dressing and sauces; I look forward to finding out some of these recipes and sharing them with all of my friends. Tonight’s BBQ Bourbon Sauce was no exception, it was so tangy and a wonderful complement to the Beef filet.

Snack: Sweet Potato Chips with Fresh Guacamole Dip

Guacamole and Sweet Potato chips, what’s not to like about that? The guacamole had a hint of lime and tobacco sauce, lots of zip this afternoon!

Dessert: Peach Cheesecake

I’m wondering if I really need to write anything more about the wonderful slices of heaven I have for dessert?

So friends, how was your day?
