Getting back on track...healthy eating 101 and pool time

Saturday, January 14, 2012

Since I am not clowning today I hit the health club. Swam for 45 minutes, water jogged for 15, had a great steam sauna, and whirlpool. Everyone at home was still sleeping! It felt great. I bought some fruit and veggies on my way home for juicing. Now I have two juicers, so one is always clean...started juicing a couple of days ago. Not hard core, but I tried a sweeter juice, carrots, celery, apple, and then the hard core veggie with kale, ginger, lemon, apples...but I was missing the cucumber. Too much ginger, so I only drank a third. Made a lovely English dinner in my new stove. I would love to be a vegan, but I just love meat! My husband and I went to the movies and skipped the soda and popcorn. the scale is going the right direction. My new goal is to lose a quarter pound a day. I think I can live with that! The most exciting thing was my blood was great! I had my blood drawn a few days ago so I can track the difference in my stats of a mostly vegetarian diet. Should be interesting! And the carrot, celery, apple juice is REALLY yummy.

Have a great one!

    Wow two juicers!

    Last Saturday I bought two new tools. A mister, which I use to spray olive oil on my pans, and a professional chopper. It was cool, I was complaining to a co-worker about Chef Meg's Roasted Root Veggie recipe. It stated a prep time of 10 minutes, while just to wash & chop took me 55 minutes!

    He recommended Williams & Sonoma's Professional Multi-Chopper, "the tool for slicing, dicing, wedging and coring vegetables and fruits". I was kinda afraid of the thing, but as I was leaving work last night I saw him in the parking lot (never ran into him there before). He told me I must try it this week-end. So I did, using it to start my veggie soup prep last night. I think it is the answer for slow knife choppers like me. Love that it has four blades!

    Good to read you are making those healthy choices, WOOT!
