For those of you who are participating in the Cyber Pact, Thursday was a sampling of the traditional and an experience of metabolic efficiency. I look forward to hearing your responses this week!
For the remaining two weeks we all join together, staying strong with the low-glycemic, super nutrition. We have the option to choose one afternoon-evening each week to enjoy an unlimited choice, knowing that our retrained and respected physical response will allow exploration and indulgence. All the while we will be consistent with training and heightened physical fitness. I am committed!
– We eat the best food we can find.
– We make effort to fuel our bodies well.
– We are careful to nourish ourselves well and seek out fantastic tastes.
– We project the most positive image our minds can muster and erase any diminishing thought.
Recipe: The Most Hated Food on the Planet – Beautiful Holiday GREEN!
Remove Brussel Sprout heads from stalk, if necessary – maybe 3 Cups. Wash and dry, peeling away some outer, loose leaves and setting aside. Cut each head in half and saute’ in olive oil and garlic, searing cut side, and after tossing a bit, adding lemon zest (maybe 2 Tablespoons). Continue to saute’, then add 1 to 1.5 C low sodium vegetable stock, cover and simmer 5-8 minutes.
Meanwhile, put leaves on cookie sheet and spray with olive oil, adding salt and pepper. Heat in 400 degree oven for just a few minutes, tossing once, until leaves are crisp.
Combine leaves with brussel sprout heads and serve. Believe me: this kicks Green Bean Casserole out of the park! (Recipe from Beth Venable)
