I think I will devote my Friday blogging to food. I will try and have a new recipe or interesting food fact to aid in weight loss.
I’m a veg and I’m try to live a relatively low carb high protein existence and its damn near impossible. I put up a few easy vegetarian recipes earlier this week and they are all pretty high in carb (not by too much but still up there)
This week I feel gassy, bloated and my stomach feels like I am carrying twins. I think it might be all the chickpeas I have been eating. I am thinking about doing a cleanse just for one day. But still haven’t decided what.
Anyway Today I got my insanity and 30DS in the mail. I put on my workout clothes and decided to watch through the Insanity and see what I am in for. I did the Max cardio circuit and it was a killer. Edit* I only did the 10 minute warm-up and I was ready to pass out. I watched the rest of the DVD and tried out a few of the moves here and there just to get used to them. After going through it, I have decided I need to get my fitness level up before I can tackle this series.
I will do the 30 days Shred for 30 continuous days and after I can do that without much trouble, I will be ready for Insanity.
After the workout, I need a quick meal that would be filling and low in carbs. I only had some eggs in the fridge and the chickpeas (which I am not touching again for at least a month.)
Here is what I came up with.
Thai egg and zucchini fry-up
2 eggs boiled
a small zucchini ( finely julienned)
Thai stir fry paste: basil garlic and chili (use any paste you have)
Tbsp. of olive oil or vegetable broth (I’m trying to cook without oil so I use the broth)
Half an avocado (optional)
- put oil/broth on a pan
- Add the zucchini and a tbsp. of Thai paste.
- Cook it down for a minute
- Chop boiled eggs and add them to pan
- Add a pinch of salt and pepper and cook for a minute
- Serve with avocado
This meal is pretty simple and quick. You can even make it quicker by having boiled eggs handy. It is absofreakinlutely delicious.
