ETL Challenge Day 15, or something like that!

Monday, July 15, 2013

I've lost a day somewhere, but this starts the 3rd week of the 6 week challenge.

It was a lovely day here in NC. I had breakfast on the porch, did some SP work, and then drove in to the Wellness center and started a Water Arthritis class. I had done it in January and it seemed to fit my level back then. But today, nothing got my heart rate up so I moved to the deep end and did my usual workout for an hour. Then I showered and walked a little over a mile along the river and had lunch on a bench. Nice!! And the rain held off. The clouds kept the temp down and a cool breeze blew away the humidity.

I created the delicious tomato sauce after lunch for my dinner. That will figure in to tomorrow's leftovers. I need to go make my Chocolate monster dip for tomorrow's breakfast.

Here's to your health!!



3B Micro salad with cherries, pear, blueberries and Sprouted Whole Wheat bread with almond butter.

7L: Blue Brussels sprouts leftovers, and the other half of my breakfast salad, and 2 makeover Possibility Cocoa Balls

9 D: 2 makeover possibility cocoa balls, Tomato sauce with lots of veggies on Lundberg mixed grains

The tomato sauce was delicious!! Canned tomatoes without salt, I drained the cans through a strainer into the saute pan with processed celery, kale, mushrooms, onions, cocoa and other seasonings. Then I processed the tomatoes and added them to the pan and simmered about an hour. The cocoa really added a lot of flavor!! Can't wait to try it with spaghetti squash tomorrow.

    I happened upon your blogs the other day and you are so enthusiastic, uplifting and consistent with what you are doing. I applaud you, lady. But I have 3 questions. What are cocoa balls and how much chocolate do you put into the tomato sauce and is the chocolate powder or liquid? I use cocoa powder in a Mexican dish not sure if it is the same thing. Sending skinny vibes your way.

    They say that cacao balances the acidity of the tomato. It has a definite taste in the recipe. I don't mind it (adds a bit of diversity to cooking), but some people just can't get over the difference it makes.
