After another night of more snowfall I woke up this morning to some beautiful sunshine and icicles! Under all that snow there is a swimming pool somewhere!
Its starting to feel like groundhog day around here with all these snow days. So the girls and I are taking full advantage of it with a pajama day! Nothing but jammies and some tv for a relaxing day!
I am still following along in Cycle 2 with the 21 Day Diet, Sunday will be my last day! Here is an example of what I eat during a typical day, again I am not following it strictly, just as a guide.
Breakfast yesterday was a smoothie which included kefir, frozen berries, agave nectar and flaxseed oil and along with that I had half a grapefruit. I really need to start adding some greens to my drinks!
Mid-morning snack I usually have some Chobani Yogurt and an orange
Lunch is usually some sort of salad and green tea. Here is a super salad that I added some chicken breast too and one of my FAVS “bacon” which is black forest ham that I browned in a dry skillet on the stove until it was crisp like bacon. So delicious!!!
If I’m hungry for an afternoon snack I will grab some hummus and veggies or maybe some pop chips to get me over that afternoon hump!
Dinner last night was Turkey Chili that I served over some whole wheat pasta, a salad and green tea.
Quick Turkey Chili
- 1 lb. ground turkey breast
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 green pepper
- 1 jar Classico De Napoli Tomato & Basil sauce
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 14 oz whole tomatoes, un-drained and chopped
- 1 tbl. chili powder
beans of your choice
Brown the turkey and break up into chunks with onion. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes. If you like a thicker chili, add less water or cook it down longer than 30 minutes. Serve over your choice of pasta.
Makes 6-8 servings
It was pretty tasty, you can basically add anything to this chili. I just used what I had on hand last night, beans would be a great addition but hubby is anti-bean. lol
