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.

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
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!

  1. I felt the same way, I had a workout with my trainer on Friday and Saturday morning, then yoga on Sunday. I feel much better!

  2. Good for you! It is amazing how everything works better when you eat healthy and workout.
