Jiggly Body Parts Prevention

After a week of gorging on beer, cheese and more bread than you can find in a bakery, I  became terrified body parts might start to jiggle.  I dedicated Saturday to fitness and clean(er) eating.  Our produce co-op delivery helped me with this mission.  A couple of my favs of the day are below.  You will notice that I still couldn’t ditch the cheese.

Cardio:
Exercise bike (I prefer the upright bikes)
2 minute warm up
90 seconds as fast you can (maintain it the entire 90 sec!)
30 seconds of recovery at a slow speed
Repeat 8x
10 minutes at moderate speed

Kale salad:
Fresh kale
Avocado
Red onion
Fresh Parmesan shavings

For the dressing, mix white balsamic vinegar, white wine vinegar, olive oil, honey, and salt.  Let the dressing marinate on the salad for a few minutes before serving.

Cauliflower soup:
2 tbsp of butter
1 medium onion
2 cloves of garlic
1 head of cauliflower
1-2 cans of low salt chicken stock
Parmesan cheese
White truffle oil

Melt butter in a large pot.  Add the onion and garlic and cook until tender.  Add cauliflower and saute a few minutes.  Add broth, cover and simmer 20 minutes (or until tender).  Transfer to a blender a puree until desired texture.  I like mine a little lumpy.  Return to pot and simmer.  Add S&P until taste.  Stir in fresh parmesan cheese.  Lastly, add a couple drops of truffle oil before serving!
