I'll be making dinner every night and the options are not as dire as I had expected. Basically, it's a portion of lean protein, good carbs like brown rice or whole wheat pasta, veggies like broccoli and spinach and everything else that's colorful, and salads. Tonight I cooked a 4 oz. piece of cod fillet by poaching it in white wine, lemon juice, garlic, and a little bit of Olivio. Next to that I had a half-cup brown rice and a big pile of steaming broccoli. On the side I had a romaine salad with the freshest tomatoes from my little garden pot, dressed in Paul Newman's Lite Sun-dried Tomato dressing (new fave!). Then, before bed I have a chocolate protein bar, and I have to tell you, it's like a dessert worth waiting for! I'd have taken photos of the dinner but it was inhaled (prepared a little later than I'd planned) before I could find my camera.
Since I basically bought one of everything in the produce department today, there will be oven-roasted veggies with the next few meals. They'll go with the salmon, haddock, chicken, and pork sirloin fillets over the next week.
I'm pretty excited as this study begins, and if you'd like to come along for the ride, please do!
