September 24 food for Shelley's THE fresh diet

Yesterday was my first day back with THE fresh diet. On Sunday I anticipated the arrival of the “little green bag” waiting for me next to my front door. And there it was when I came downstairs nice and early. This is one of the things that I love about THE fresh diet; it is fresh food delivered everyday to my front door. I mean how much easier does it get then that? No weighing, no measuring, no points to count, just open and eat… I’m not saying that this is a lifelong way to eat but for someone who wants to jump start their healthy eating for a while before you settle back into “life” it is a great way to start….. or for those pesty 10 pounds I hear so many people talking about take a month or two and just do it! And you know the food is pretty tasty too!!

Breakfast

Artichoke & Brie Cheese, Parsley Omelet with Seven Grain Toast

This is one of my favorite breakfasts from THE fresh diet, I love the creamy brie and the artichokes!!!

Lunch

Santa Fe Style Salad with Monterrey Jack Cheese, Corn, Black Beans, Tomato, Jicama Bel Peppers and Romaine Lettuce with Ranch Dressing

I could not believe how much salad fit in my container!! I took the salad out to toss the dressing in one of my glass bowls and could not believe it filled the whole bowl up, and I’m talking lots of sweet jicama too! The cheese was shredded which is a good way to “spread the love” as it seems to give you more when actually it isn’t… And I do love how the dressing is real dressing not low fat stuff that just tastes nasty, it was delicious Ranch!

Snack

White Bean Hummus with Pita Chips

What’s not to love about hummus? Well maybe it seemed like a smidge in size, but after I enjoyed it with some tea it really was the correct amount, ya know how I knew? I wasn’t hungry!!! I always remember my old nutritionist who used to ask me “Are you hungry?”

Dinner

Vegetarian Meatball Peperonata with linguine Pasta with Onions and Peppers. with Chipotle Whipped Cauliflower Puree and Herbed Barley Pilaf

When ordering my food this week i decided to try a few vegetarian meals so I could write about them for those who don’t eat meat. The meatballs did have a “meaty” consistency and they were rather good. But by far my favorite item of the meal was the chipotle whipped cauliflower. I’m going to have to get this recipe to share with you because it is delicious and makes a great alternative to white whipped potatoes!!

Dessert

Pink Poached Pear Filled with Creamy Ricotta Cheese & Honey Roasted Walnuts

While waiting to juggle the remote between The Voice and Dancing with the Stars I enjoyed my pear with sweet ricotta cheese and a cup of tea it was a nice way to complete my cuisine for the day.
