Okay seriously, I love food! So why can’t I just take my love of food and learn to really love food!?! It’s like I need to be challenged to get my tooshie moving and my mind creating and my body craving.
I’ve had baby #4-enough is enough! I need to burn this baby fat!! If my finicky shark can learn to love green veggies-even beg for them-then I can learn to crave all things healthy. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE veggies!! But I also crave evil food like carbs and starches and gooey sugary goodness. Wait, back on track…
Can you believe Jesse actually enjoyed the sautéed kale at dinner last night!? And of course he also enjoyed the grilled asparagus I made for dinner tonight.
I think the fact that I love a challenge and love writing encouraged me to write myself a great meal plan for this week.
Egg White Kale Scramble Wraps, Chicken and Wild Rice Thai Lettuce Wraps, Pork Cauliflower Fried Rice, and Sausage and White Bean Fennel Stew are just a few ideas in my head for the week!
My dinner was so beautiful and tasty healthy that I just had to share. Even if I did only snap a photo with my iPhone 6 instead of my Canon DSLR!

On a griddle, drizzle the olive oil. Heat over medium.
Trim the ends of the asparagus and stems of the brussels sprouts. Cut the brussels in half along the stem.
Grill the vegetables about 5 minutes, turning frequently and seasoning with Mrs Dash.
