Today is Easter which means different things to different people, but one thing seems to be the same with everyone…food. I find it interesting that humans include food as such an important part of their celebrations. Why do you think that is? Please leave a comment with your theories. In the spirit of all that food, here are the photos I’ve taken of things I’ve eaten over the past couple of weeks. (It’s about time I finally got around to posting them.) Scroll over the photos if you want to see the descriptions. If you want a recipe or more info, just ask!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a food journal entry, not because I’ve stopped eating but because it was truly driving me crazy. It had become something negative for me so I’ve found a way to turn it into something positive. Instead of going through every little detail of every bite I’m going to post the highlights. If it’s healthy and especially delicious I’ll try to take photos then post all of them once a week (or so). This is motivating me to find new and interesting things to make which is a good thing.

Of course, if I’m going to include healthy and delicious foods I can’t leave out my Shakeology which was recently featured in “O” Magazine. You can’t get it from Oprah, but you’ll find it in my online store on facebook. 

This was a great snack…peppers, carrots, radishes and a homemade avocado and yogurt dressing that was lowfat and delicious.

Black bean soup from Sam the Cooking Guy made in the slow cooker.

Salad with more of the avocado and yogurt dressing.

That gets me caught up to today. More later! 😀 If you’d like recipes for anything I post leave a comment.

Today was the first meeting for the local weightloss/fitness challenge group which was a lot of fun. It’s been a while since we’ve had guests who are older than our kids and didn’t want to play Call of Duty. 😉 Since we met around dinner time, we ate and it was really good. One of the members has been doing the Shakeology 3-day cleanse so we had food that would fit into her eating plan. I don’t think any of us felt deprived and everything was from the top two tiers of Michi’s Ladder, a breakdown of which foods are best and worst to eat for overall health. The Ladder consists of 5 tiers ranging from the best of the best to the stuff that should be avoided at all costs. Contact me on facebook for more info about Michi’s Ladder and other great tools for weightloss and getting fit.

Breakfast – Chocolate Shakeology made with 8oz water, 4oz organic skim milk, 1Tbs sugar-free butterscotch pudding mix, 3 ice cubes (I cannot even tell you how delicious this was)

AM Snack – P90X Chocolate Peanut Butter protein bar

Lunch – I woke up kind of late so the protein bar kind of acted as lunch, too

PM Snack – Fiber One Oats and Chocolate bar

Dinner – lemon garlic rosemary marinated chicken breast filets, grilled; delightful salad with “artisan” lettuce from Costco, romaine, carrots, baby peppers, cucumber, radishes and homemade dressing (recipe from the Team Beachbody newsletter) including avocado, fat free plain yogurt, parsley, garlic, red onion, lemon juice, salt and pepper; tomato basil soup (recipe from Sam the Cooking Guy) that was heated in the crock pot on high for a couple of hours before serving

I don’t have calorie or burn totals because my BodyBugg subscription just expired and as much as I love it I’m not ready to renew yet. Feel free to order Shakeology or an awesome Beachbody fitness program through my Beachbody Coach website to contribute to the fund. 😉
