    3 miles walking trails.. 4.3 hours hardcore yard work , mowing (push mower), weeding, trimming, etc.. in 84 degree weather..sunburned too!!

    Grilled Chicken breast wrapped in bacon & seasoned with Old Bay and EVOO
    Broccoli with herb butter sauce
    Mashed Cauliflower w cheese and bacon (for the kids)

    This meal is healthy following my Keto lifestyle and The broccoli was a hit with both my boys that are never a huge fan of anything green on their plates..

    I am making a healthy meal for my husband. He loves pork chops and onion gravy. I have a recipe makeover for this dish so I decided to give it a try. I will be replacing the normal chicken broth for a reduced sodium version and using a gravy mix pack instead of white flour. This recipe reduces the sodium by approx 230 mg. I hope he likes it. :smile:

    Bonus - ran 1 mile this morning and will be running another mile this evening

    My family and I will be having Chicken Tikka Masala and steamed broccoli.

    To lighten up the Masala, I used only chicken breast and 1/2 & 1/2 instead of heavy cream as the recipe calls for. And I also omited the butter to saute the onions/chickens. That's what Pam is for! :wink:

    Baked Tilapia, whole wheat Linguine. Cook the Tilapia in a little olive oil with some Mrs Dash, and lemon. Toss the linguine in a little olive oil and fish juice from the packet it baked in. YUM. Just a little over 450 calories and good for your brain!

    I have 2 ideas for this, first I'm trying not to snack on so much "processed" foods and eat fresh fruit instead. I had grapes and strawberries today. For dinner I'm going to make a orange chicken stir fry. I found an orange sauce bottled by panda express, I believe its only 70 calories per 2 table spoons, two servins is enough for the whole pan. I throw in a bag of stir fry veggies and brown some chicken and you have a huge serving and its low cal. It taste better then take out and so much better for you.

    I reported this to my capo Don. I made a simple grilled chicken salad marinated in italin dressing, I added shredded mozzarella, and added a little more italian dressing to top. I had a fruit yogurt smoothie to drink with it.!

    I also did a healthy breakfast.
    I sauteed peppers, onion and mushrooms in some coconut oil then added egg whites and one whole egg. (I used more whites for me to be lower calorie but one with yolk to add some yummy flavor)

    The whole family had a healthy breakfast instead of poptarts or junk

    Also I did the bonus bike ride (plus some)

    Diced avocado fried with bacon, topped with diced feta-kalamata-tomato mixture. One of my favorite meals :)
    2% carbs, 88% fat, 10% protein

    Went for a long walk before (3+, I think) to get my appetite up :)

    (I'm on ketogenic Paleo, btw)
