the “fresh life” day 10

january 13, 2012 day 10

Friday started with a morning workout with Ryan and today he brought with him a new torture device piece of exercise equipment…

It was a tough workout, lots of legs and core today; something told me my abs were going to be feeling this! I sure huffed and puffed a lot! However, I keep telling myself patience, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and I didn’t get so out of shape in a day…

Daily Cuisine:

Breakfast: Mushroom & Turkey Sausage Egg Bake with Fresh Pineapple

I really enjoy the egg bakes; each day that I have had them they have tasted a little different. Today’s with the mixture of mushroom and the tangy turkey sausage was a delightful blend. And the pineapple added that small bit of sweetness.

Lunch: Grilled Steak Salad with Romaine Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion & Horseradish Dressing

The grilled streak was fork tender and a great addition to the salad which was completed with the zesty horseradish dressing.

Dinner: Fillet of Halibut with Spicy Orange Sauce with Nine Grain Pilaf and Roasted Cauliflower

The halibut had a mild taste so the added spicy orange sauce was an amazing mixture of soft and mild with a bit of kick. I don’t believe I have ever had nine grain pilaf before which had a bit of a nutty taste, and the roasted cauliflower was delicious to complete the meal.

Snack: Mushroom Crowns Stuffed with Sautéed Garlic Beef with Tomato Sauce

I am amazed how 2 mushroom crowns stuffed with sautéed beef were so satisfying! The sautéed beef was quite tangy.

Dessert: Chocolate Pudding Topped with Toasted Almonds

Who doesn’t love a little chocolate every now and then? So I was pleasantly surprised with the creamy blend of chocolate pudding and toasted almonds. It was another great way to end the day.

How did your work week end? Did you get in that killer workout?
