I’m sure you’re wondering how the 21-Day GGC Challenged finished up. It was a success! I lost five pounds, dropping from 137 to 132 and I’ve maintained that weight since then.
I thought you’d like to see a sampling of the food I received the last week. I remember a very interesting breakfast of herb crepes with goat cheese and apricot preserves. I’m not a huge crepe fan, but I give GGC props for creating a mix of very different flavors. Who doesn’t like apricot preserves? Mwah! Turkey chili and pumpkin crostata with papaya salad for a couple of lovely lunches. The chili was spicy and delicious! The pumpkin crostata had some kind of blue cheese in it…say no more! I love blue cheese! Afternoon snack standouts: light and lovely orange nut cake (how do they bake such a light cake?) and healthy blondies (nuts, chocolate all mixed together with a brownie-like texture…I could eat 10!…but I won’t! 😉 ). Best dinners (like, “Can I have them every week?”, awesome dinners): pork chops with mushroom sauce and zucchini portabellos and honey-grilled chicken with miso-glazed Brussels sprouts. Delicious dinners, how I love thee? Let me count the ways. 1) Mushrooms. I love them and can’t get enough. The mushroom sauce over the pork chops was sublime. And I love portabello mushrooms…and these were stuffed with savory zucchini shreds. 2) Brussels sprouts. Cooked to perfection, grilled, glazed with miso. Say no more! What can I say? I love good veggies.
It’s been a great experience not having to shop, plan, prep, cook and clean up, knowing a nutritionist planned every fantastic recipe with flavor and nutrients in mind.
