Yep, yep, I'm eating this healthy stuff you mentioned but I got kinda triggered by that Starbuck's venti Chocolate Brownie Frappuccino. I've never been to Starbuck's as I don't drink coffee but this sounds like quite a drink. LOL. I've never drank a brownie before.

I'm on my 5th day of phase 1 and everything I'm having today is healthy. I have green salad with chicken breast for lunch. When I buy groceries, I get a large bag of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cook them in the crock pot. Then I freeze them in small bags and they are ready to go when I pack my lunch.

This challenge is right on target for me TODAY. I've already posted my confessional in the lounge room so this challenge is about as timely as it gets. Are you psychic, Ms. K?
Other than the whole grains, which I'm dropping for a time, I'm with you on this one 100%

Your challenge today is to EAT WHOLE, HEALTHY, & HEARTY! That means that you need to concentrate on eating:
*Whole Grains *Healthy foods that are NOT fried or full of unhealthy fats, full of sugar, or full of sodium *Lean meats *Lowfat dairy products *Healthy fats that are full of Omega 3 acids (nuts, olive oil, flax seeds, etc.)
Also, remember to drink HEALTHY beverages that aren't full of sugar or empty calories. You are throwing away your daily caloric target when you drink things like a Starbuck's venti Chocolate Brownie Frappuccino at 600 calories!
When preparing your food (or eating out), make sure to use cooking methods like:
*Steamed *Baked *Broiled *Grilled *Poached *Stir-Fried (you can use broth instead of oil or use your healthy Omega 3 olive oil for this)
Have a HEART HEALTHY Wednesday!
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae
