CLEANSE FOOD LOG – Day 3

Last night after posting my food log I hit my first wall.  It was a mini wall, but a wall nonetheless.  About an hour after eating my bowl of berries I started craving THESE crunchy lightly salted crackers…I love those things.  But, after repeating the mantra, “This too shall pass” a few times in my head, it did pass and I didn’t give into the craving.

So, let’s get to my food log for day 3.

WEDNESDAY

  • 7:oo am – Large glass of water
  • 8:30 am – Bowl of sliced Fuji apple, sliced pear, a sliced banana, and pomegranate seeds.  I then dusted the bowl of fruit with Saigon cinnamon (pictured above).
  • 9:30 am – 10:30am – Pilates reformer class
  • 10:30 am – a quart bag filled to the brim with baby carrots, sliced red and orange bell peppers, and celery
  • 12:45 pm – Big Disneyland-sized spear of pineapple
  • 1:00 pm – A serving of the stir-fry I made yesterday (click HERE for details)
  • 2:15 pm – Already hungry again, so making a chocolate mint smoothie (water, 1/2 sweet potato, 1/2 of a zucchini, handful of spinach, handful of fresh mint, cocoa powder, vanilla creme stevia, small frozen banana, ice…about half the size of the smoothie I made yesterday).
  • 4:45 pm – Snacked on some nori and had 24 ounces of cold water with one scoop of NanoGreens.
  • 6:15 pm – A bowl of veggie soup (click HERE for details) and two small ears of roasted corn sprinkled with Chile con Limon.
  • 8:30 pm – Planning on having a bowl of raspberries, blueberries, and sliced banana.  If I get hungry afterward I plan on having some herbal tea.

I am off to get my kiddos ready for bed.  I am feeling really good and have not been experiencing any big cravings today.

GRILLED CORN ON THE COB

This weekend I bought the most amazing tri-color corn at our local organic farm stand…our first fresh corn of the season.  I immediately knew how I wanted to prepare it.  Grilled.  Grilling corn imparts a slightly smokey taste, but what I love about it is the fact that the corn husk protects the corn from direct contact with the grill.

At dinner I think we all would have eaten two ears of corn each (If I had been smart enough to buy that much!).  Instead I bought 5 ears and we were all left fighting over the last ear…

INGREDIENTS

Corn on the cob (As many ears as you would like)

Earth Balance® Natural Buttery Spread – Soy Free

Seasoning (i.e. Celtic sea salt, pepper, OR Chili con Limon)

Trim the corn and make sure there is not excess husk or stem.

Soak the corn (in its husk) in water for 30 minutes (My in-laws bought me the tub below from an Asian market and I use it ALL THE TIME for soaking produce). 

Preheat the barbeque to medium heat.

Place the soaked corn in its husk on the barbeque.  Turn the corn every 3-5 minutes for a total of 15-20 minutes.

Remove the corn from the barbeque and allow it to cool until it is cool enough to shuck. 

Once shucked spread the Earth Balance® Natural Buttery Spread over each ear of corn.

Season immediately.  The Earth Balance® Natural Buttery Spread will add wonderful flavor and will also help the seasoning stick to the corn.

Chile Con Limon NET WT. 4 oz.

My favorite seasoning for grilled corn is Chile Con Limon by Via Nueva…so good!  For more information about this seasoning click here.
