Week 11: Day 2

March 30, 2015

A real day of this whole eating healthy thing. I had all good meals and tried out a new recipe for good measure. I also made it to the gym today. Double-win. I am starting the week strong, and I hope it continues

Breakfast

I decided I have been eating too many eggs, but because I love eggs for breakfast, I made a compromise. I am going to be going the egg white route. Cuts out a lot of the fat and cholesterol. Luckily, I am a huge egg white only fan, so this isn’t a real disappointment. This morning I had a spinach, green onion, mozzarella cheese egg white omelette. Oh, so divine.

Lunch

What would lunch be without some chicken and mayo? Not my kind of lunch. My go-to lunch of chicken breast with some blue corn chips and organic salsa. Hit the spot.

Dinner

This is the exciting one. I made buffalo chicken soup, following this recipe. As we all know, I am a sucker for anything buffalo flavored, so I had to try this one out. I am also a huge fan of one meal lasting the whole week — cue this soup. The only  modification I made was I used Anchorbar buffalo sauce (obviously) instead of Red Hot. The soup had just enough of a kick, but wasn’t too overpowering where I couldn’t enjoy it. I used the stovetop method because I didn’t have my ingredients until dinner time. Verdict: I am looking forward to eating it the rest of the week.

Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

You could put buffalo sauce on pretty much anything and I would eat. Add chicken and it makes it one of the perfect combos. Hence, buffalo chicken quesadillas are a pretty constant meal choice for me. I am all about quick and easy meals, and this definitely fits that bill.

ingredients

Serves 1

  • 2 tortillas
  • About 3/4 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
  • 1/2 chopped tomato
  • 1 chopped scallion
  • 1/2 cup small grilled chicken pieces
  • Buffalo sauce as desired

Week 4: Day 1

Feb. 8, 2015

I am entering my fourth week! Which is super exciting because 4 weeks means 1 month and 1 month is impressive in my book. I don’t think I have ever made it this far in anything. I feel super motivated to keep this going and push myself. I want to keep feeling better and making progress.

Breakfast

I was home and heading back to school and didn’t eat anything. Oops.

Lunch

hot turkey

I got back to school and was starving, so I whipped this up. A pretty classic lunch for me. Some warmed up turkey, colby jack cheese and mayo on half of a multigrain pita. It was nice and filling and very satisfying. I had it with some carrots and ranch to add some freshness.

Dinner

buff chick pizza

So not the healthiest thing I have ever made, but I had leftover pita from the gyros, and I didn’t want them to go to waste. I decided to make a buffalo chicken pita pizza. On it was ranch, grilled chicken, mozzarella cheese, scallions and Anchor Bar wing sauce. It wasn’t too big, so I didn’t feel too bad about eating it.

Week 3: Day 3

Feb. 4, 2015

Today I felt good about myself again! I was happy with what I ate and didn’t want to gorge on fries. It’s the little things that are getting me through.

Breakfast

yogurt with walnuts

Pre-workout breakfast was pretty light. I had some low-fat vanilla yogurt with some chopped up walnuts and a few chocolate chips. Yogurt is definitely not my favorite thing in the world, but I think I am learning to like it. For whatever reason walnuts make the world of difference, and without them I don’t think I would be eating any yogurt.

Lunch

buffalo turkey pita

So tasty! I had some leftover pita from my gyro’s on Monday, so I didn’t want them to go to waste because they were so great. Being from Upstate NY, anything with Buffalo sauce on it, I will eat, so I made a warm buffalo turkey pita. I heated up some turkey with Anchorbar buffalo sauce, scallions and colby jack cheese. Then I finished the pita with some romaine lettuce, ranch and tomatoes. Definitely high on my list of best meals I have made.

Dinner

Day 5 of the soup. Ugh. I still have so much left.
