I made a delicious salad last night for dinner and I even made my own croutons and salad dressing! For the croutons, I cut up some stale italian bread into small cubes and placed them on a cookie sheet. I then drizzled some Extra Virgin Olive Oil over them and sprinkled some italian seasoning. Then placed into a 350° oven for 10-12 minutes.
- Green and Yellow Peppers
- Romaine Lettuce
The dressing was of course an Alton Brown recipe: Veni Vedi Vinaigrette
I’m trying very hard to eat a lot healthier right now because I have not been eating well at all. I’ve also gained a few pounds over the last few months and it only bothers me because my pants are fitting a little tighter. Like the rest of the world I am setting some weight loss and healthy living goals. I am going to take it slowly and steadily so it will be a lot easier to maintain. I think my new training schedule will give me a nice push in the right direction, exercise wise.
Just to keep things clear though, I only want to shed a few pounds so I can fit into my jeans better. I also need to rid my body of all the junk that I’ve been eating. The best way for me to do this is to eat a lot more fruits and veggies than I have been. It’s really as simple as that. Wish me luck!
