Journey Journal: Days 149-151

Day 149: Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Breakfast of berries and peaches topped with granola. Lunch with salad, topped with curried ground beef, bacon, hard boiled egg, carrots, red onions, honeyed almonds, dried cranberries, grape tomatoes and homemade honey mustard dressing. After about a month off, I finally made it back to iVIVA today! I’ve missed it! Dinner of leftover tuna pasta with peas and a side of leftover baked beans. For dessert, I had a frozen lime fruit bar.

Day 150: Thursday, May 30, 2013

Started with a breakfast of granola, blueberries, and soy milk…and coffee, of course. Lunch was another salad (same as yesterday). Had an afternoon snack of a Green Goodness Smoothie from Bolthouse Farms. Went to iVIVA again after work–my favorite part is definitely the sauna. Then I made a dinner of steak (seared on the stovetop then broiled in the oven – recipe here), caramelized onions, penne pasta with marinara and goat cheese, garlic green beans with roasted tomatoes. Finished the evening with some decaf organic coffee with coconut milk.

Day 151: Friday, May 31, 2013

Grabbed a quick bowl of Kashi cereal before heading out the door for work. Lunch was leftover steak, green beans, and pasta. For dinner, we decided to splurge and ended up at Pizza City before taking an evening drive.

I am going to try to do gluten-free and dairy-free for the month of June, so it was nice to have one last splurge before May ends. I’ve definitely noticed a difference since being off of dairy (though I will still, obviously, eat it occasionally–as pictured above).

Beginning tomorrow, I’ll be looking for all kinds of GF-DF recipes! I’m starting here: http://glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com/2008/09/gluten-free-casein-free-recipe-index.html. And Bryan even agreed to do the gluten-free part with me (he still won’t give up his cheese and butter unless he’s cooking for me). So, wish us luck!
