the “fresh life” day 4

January 7, 2012 food collage

It was a nice day here outside of DC yesterday, my only problem was I didn’t get myself out of the house for a short walk, or even a drive, not good!

My arms had there “day of soreness” today after my first upper body work out with Ryan, well it was to be expected… Just have to think about those baby steps…

My food from THE fresh diet continues to be d-lish! I’m really hoping to get more into the company behind the food over the next few months since so many of my facebook buddies have asked me about the program. So stay tuned! And if you aren’t following on facebook please join in!

Food of the day:

Breakfast: Passion Fruit Ricotta Cheese Crepes with fresh Orange

I really enjoyed the two Crepes! I started drinking a passion fruit tea a few months back and enjoy the sweet flavor. The mixture of the ricotta and passion fruit was just enough to be divine and a great breakfast!

Lunch: Hard Boiled Egg Salad with Shredded Carrots, Wax Beans, Grape Tomato, with a Radicchio Mix on top of Boston Lettuce with Thousand Island Dressing.

I am a salad kinda gal, love the crunch and crunch! I added a little more lettuce to “beef up” the salad, but I really enjoyed it and loved the fresh radicchio and the dressing was to die for, and just the right amount!

Dinner: Grilled Mahi Mahi with Caribbean Mango Sauce with Herbed Broccoli Mash and Creamy Herbed Quinoa.

I was happy to see that there were not only Chicken dishes on THE fresh diets cuisine choices but fresh fish! The fish was light and fluffy and the Caribbean Mango Sauce was so so sweet and zesty! I will definitely have to find out the recipe of this one to share because it added so much flavor to the Mahi Mahi which is a mild fish! Loved how the broccoli was mashed to mix it up a bit from plain spear and the quinoa was very creamy and tasty!

Hor D’Oeurve: Tuna Salad on Crunch Celery Sticks

Ok, i know you are thinking tuna, blah but it was creamy and loved the contrast of the crunchy celery! Two slices seemed kinda small portion but it is a snack not a meal! that is something we all need to learn.

Dessert: Pear Cheesecake

I sat down and enjoyed my sliver of cheesecake at the end of the day and it was a wonderful sweet way to say “good night” to my food!

I am trying to pick new foods to try while working on enjoying my cuisine for new tastes and satiety. Have you tried any new foods in your diet lately?
