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.
