Love the farmer's market

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Day two of my personal 10-day clean eating challenge. Its going well. I feel like I ate a lot of protein yesterday, but it was still only 30% of my calories, so right in line. I plan on today going well, had a really good work-out with my trainer.

I plan to do some cooking today, making whole wheat apple bread pudding for future breakfasts, some homemade vegetable marinara for future dinners, and maybe some hummus for future lunches and snacks. This part of clean eating is easy for me, I like to cook already so I just need to use the best ingredients I can.

At the farmer's market yesterday I bought beets, pumpkins, swiss chard, oranges, apples, onioins, green onions, and some local grass fed hamburger. I already cooked the swiss chard for lunch yesterday. I saute some prosciutto, sliced garlic, red pepper and pepper flakes along with it. Really tasty.

I love that our town has a farmer's market all year round, and several nearby towns do too, so its easy to find one even when my work schedule varies. We also have several natural markets, a Trader Joe's and a Whole Foods. So there's no excuse for me not to buy more organic and less processed foods. And I'll just have to sneak them around my husband, who has no interest in healthy food (even though he has a 40-inch waist and never exercises). It will be a challenge, to say the least.

    My husband goes to the Roseville Farmers Mkt every Tuesday - so we're having kale again tonight and that's great! (love kale) - he's not into whole grain stuff, but at least we eat a lot of great veggies. I think it's more that he's picky than wanting healthy things, but that works for me.
    Glad you get to enjoy the Farmer's Market too!
