Posts Tagged ‘Garden Green Salad’

To the best of my ability, I’ve been taking my Barley Max 2 times a day. I’m supposed to take the Barley Max 3 times a day, the morning, 30 minutes before lunch and again dinner. But it never fails,  I’m out of the house for one of those meals or I just forget. For example, all day Tuesday I did not take my Barley Max or drink Carrot Juice.

On the Carrot Juice front, I’m drinking at least 1 to 2 glasses regularly. I’m not going to say a day, because it’s so speratic. Because of this irregularity with the Barley Max and Carrot Juice I don’t feel like my body is processing food as quickly or filling me up as much. Because believe it or not, I got filled up drinking the juice.

Onion Pizza & Salad Lunch

Onion Pizza & Salad Lunch

For lunch, Mike wanted to get a Pizza at Tally Ho Restaurant. So I went to the post office to mail his express mail and picked up the Cheese & Onion Pizza.  I asked him to order a part of the Pizza with no Cheese on it… and they made it like that!!!!

So I mixed up my Garden Green Salad and Oil & Vinegar Dressing to go along with the Pizza. I also added the Grilled Peppers, Onions & Zucchini to the Pizza too. It was quite good.

I broke from the norm of eating ONLY RAW FOODS today. Mike made Turkey Cutlets with Potatoes & Onions for lunch. I hadn’t eaten cutlets since before I made my change to Eating Raw Foods and it was good to eat this fresh, healthy meal. The meal I thought wasw healthy, because of the vegetables in the Cutlets and the Salad, and the turkey meat is high in Protein and a much better meat for me.

Turkey Cutlets

Turkey Cutlets w/Garlic

Ingredients:

4Onions

6Potatoes

1Pkg Ground Turkey

4Tbls Olive Oil

Tumeric

Paprika

Sea Salt

Pepper

Directions:

Boil Potatoes in water and peel skin. While Potatoes are boiling, peel & chop Onions and then combine package of ground Turkey Meat with Potatoes and Onions. Begin hand mixing the ingredients and add seasonings. Mold the ingredients in to flat, round patties and place into grill with Olive Oil and add Garlic Cloves and grill for 15 minutes or until meat is cooked.

I actually got the opportunity to participate in this lunch creation by molding the ingredients in to patties.  It’s a good thing I got my Pilates workout this morning (Wednesday).

Balsamic Vinegar I Use

While the Turkey Cutlets were grilling, I decided to make a Garden Salad  with an Oil & Vinegar Dressing to go along with the Cutlets. This Golden Balsamic Vinegar I’m using tastes so good paired with the Olive Oil, I don’t need any kind of seasoning in the Dressing. And I had a bag of Baby Green Lettuce that needed to be used… so there you go!

Ingredients:

1Bag of Baby Greens

Garden Green Salad

Wednesday Green Salad

1Red Bell Pepper

1 Yellow Bell Pepper

1 Avocado

1Small Bunch of Broccoli

3Green Onions

1/2Can of Chick Peas

4Mushrooms

Directions:

Clean and Chop up all the Vegetables and add to washed lettuce and serve. Add Oil & Vinegar to taste.

Yesterday and today (Wednesday), I did pretty well with not eating sweets or junk… and it really feels good to eat fresh and raw. But I can’t say that was true for dinner time.

Onion, Peppers, Zucchini

Onion, Peppers, Zucchini

I got my Garden Green Salad out for dinner and warmed up the Grilled Onions, Peppers & Zucchini  I made Sunday and ate that for dinner. I added the Chick Peas to the Salad, because I realized I had the open can in the refrigerator. A great meal, filling and I didn’t crave anything for a while. It may have been because I had some Hummus and Sangek Bread afterwards.

But as the night progressed… while we were watching Wednesday Night Comedy on ABC, I wanted a Chocolate Dove Bar. That’s 260 calories of useless sugar and chemicals! I don’t know why I can’t keep my hands off this stuff? It’s not helpfull that Mike goes out and buys it either.!

Boy, when I woke up it hurt to take my first step out of bed. My calves got such a workout yesterday; I didn’t realize it until I was walking away from the bed. I wanted to hit Pilates again this morning, but thought better of that idea. 🙂

So instead, I did something better (as I type facetiously).  I got a Starbucks Tall Pumpkin Spiced Iced Latte with Soy Milk instead. There’s 5 or 600 calories of sugar and fat I can’t get back!

Garden Green Salad

Garden Green Salad

For lunch I made a Garden Green Salad with a bunch of great Vegetables in it. Today, I added Raisins and an Oil & White Balsamic Vinegar Dressing.

Garden Green Salad:

Ingredients:

1-Bag of Spring Salad

4 Mushrooms

4 Green Onions

1 Avocado

1 Orange Bell Pepper

1 Tomato

1/4Cup Raisins

Directions: Wash the Spinach and Baby Greens from the Salad Mix Bag. Wash and chop up the Vegetables. Add the Raisins and Dressing and serve.  

Oil & Vinegar Dressing:

Ingredients:

2 Tbls. Olive Oil

2 Tbls. White Balsamic Vinegar

I’ve got to say, my experimenting is getting better and better. I had just a little bit the Whole Grain Rigatoni left, so I heated it up and had that as well.

Assorted Danish Cake

What's Left of Assorted Danish Cake

And I hate to say this, or even document it, but I had yet some more morsels of the Danish Assorted Cake Mike bought at Costco. This is what was left of the Assorted Danish Cake after I got my hands on it. Both Mike and I had a part to play in polishing off the tin of Danish. It’s ruining everything I’ve done so far by going to the Pilates classes this week.! But I’m happy to write, Mike ate the last of the Danish, so thankfully there are no more temptations.!!!

Christmas Day… with no one in the house but Mike and I, and all the presents already opened(the one he bought me!), we decided to brave the freezing temps(totally my suggestion).

It really didn’t feel like Christmas to me, so we left the house and went to go find someplace that was open serving food. We found a local place called Silver Dollar Cafe. It looks like a silver 50’s mobile home… and the food is about that same timeframe. I had a Vegetable Chili Soup and a Turkey Sandwich with Cheese. I forgot to take the Cheese off. I also drank some HOT TEA… because it was sooo cold out.

Then we made our way over to the movie theatre and bought our tickets for “It’s Complicated”. Such a great movie. It seems that’s all Mike’s willing to do when we are hear…. everything else is such a battle to do:(

Then on our way home, we thought we’d see if Safeway Grocery Store was still open for some food. Well it wasn’t:( so we went home.

Where I had the left over Garden Green Salad and Potatoes & Onions for dinner. Then for dessert, I remembered we had Berries in the frig, so I made a Berry Parfait with Flaxseed and Whipped Topping.

The whipped topping followed by a piece of Hershey’s Chocolate Bar with Nuts & Peanut Butter were my absolute downfalls. And my stomach reminded me later of what I’d done!

I got my Christmas wish this year…. attend midnight mass(10pm) at the Washington, D.C. National Cathedral.

What a beautiful experience that was…. I’m ashamed to say, it’s been a long time since I’ve been to church and this Christmas Eve Mass was wonderful to experience. I sang, I prayed, and I enjoyed the beautiful Sermun.

Afterwards… getting through the parking garage mess, we made it home after midnight. And I have to tell you, that was enough.

Before we left for the mass… around 8:30pm we munched on some Garden Green Salad, Whole Wheat Bread and Hummas for dinner. And that was filling enough to put me right ot bed.

Today, is Christmas… I’d like to catch the new movie, “It’s Complicated”. Should be fun…..
