07/15/15- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 13. July 2014 16:58

Summer lifestyles beg for quick, light meals that are full of lean protein and different colored fruits and vegetables.


            Salads are a great solution, with endless possibilities. Try kale, arugula, or bok choy for an unusual green filled with antioxidants. Recently, I made a salad with corn, green onions, red/orange sweet peppers, and rinsed black beans, cilantro and I used  a non-fat balsamic dressing (Waldon Farms). It was safe to have on a picnic, low fat, and delicious.


            Fish is a light, easy protein. A great recipe that can be cooked rare, sliced, and served over greens in a salad, over quinoa, or Israeli couscous or with grilled vegetables is yellow fin tuna (aka- ahi tuna). The omega-3 oils in fish provide anti-inflammatory qualities. http://www.cincinnati.md/oh/cincinnati/topic-ue4637/omega%203%20oils%20in%20fish/american_heart_association_healthy_diet_guidelines . Putting a teaspoon of sesame oil in a hot pan and searing each side briefly can add a great flavor.


            I find that summer’s laid-back attitude and multitude of food options available,  makes cooking and eating fun and healthy.

Tip of the Day:

Eat slowly and enjoy the moment.  Put your fork down between bites and don't eat in front of the tv or computer.  That leads to mindless eating and you may consume more calories than you intended,  which alters your results from your clean eating and exercise goals!
