Well of course I will be posting pictures of food, I’m on a mission and food is a big part of my life. So last night I made grilled teriyaki chicken with a slice of pineapple, a kale salad and a tiny bit of rice. The picture below is the soccer players plate, he can get away with a little more carbs since he is so active. It may look big but looks are deceiving because for years now we all (including) motorcycle man use a salad plate as our dinner plate. This is all piled on a salad plate and the kale salad was a first. I have tried kale chips and I have put kale in soups but never have I attempted to make a salad of it. The results were awesome, soccer player loved it, motorcycle man liked it, I really, really loved it and the littlest and only girl tried some left over today and she likes it. I think I’m on to a new healthy salad.
I took these images at night and although they don’t look very natural with natural light like I adore, they look okay. My Canon 20D would have never taken a picture this well at night….EVER.
Dinner table at night (just practicing)
In the salad I put kale, swiss chard, carrots, red cabbage and dried cranberries. I just used a simple balsamic vinaigrette dressing. I’m excited to add this to the rotation.
I tried a new breakfast too. My sister Sarah sent me this awesome link pop sugar for recipe ideas and this was a breakfast idea which includes avocados, one of my favorite things to eat. Half an avocado with an egg cooked in it’s pit hole. I cooked it on 425 for 20 minutes. If the idea of hot avocado doesn’t appeal to you, don’t bother. I personally didn’t mind it. I eat avocado rolls that are warm and like them so I figured why not? The egg yolk remains runny but again, I love my eggs over easy so this worked for me. I total this breakfast at 217 calories, the avocado was small and my fitness pal gave it that number calculation.
My feet still hurt but hello, it’s only day 4!!
