Poblano Pumpkin Curry and more!

On Sunday I stocked up on my weeks worth of food and prepped out all of my lunches. 




Day 8 Breakfast - two sweet potato rounds with two eggs and some bacon, with a side of diced pear

Day 8 Lunch - Acorn squash topped with chipotle chili and a side of banana chips and guacamole 

Day 8 Dinner - Meatloaf and green beans 

MEATLOAF 

1 lb of ground beef 
1/2 diced onion 
1 egg 
preferred seasonings 
about 1 tbs of coconut flour 

mix all together and form into a loaf. 
Top with tomato paste, dijon and balsamic vinegar mixed to your desired taste

Bake at 350 for about 30-45 minutes 

Day 9 Breakfast - Larabar and a banana 

Day 9 Lunch - Brussels, sweet potatoes, raisins, and pecans with a Kombucha. The crispy fruit shown I ended up throwing in the trash. It was SOOOOO sweet and tasted weird. I might try a different fruit next time, but the cantaloupe was not for me. 

Day 9 Dinner - Cashew Chicken 

Cashew Chicken 
1 1/2 chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces 
1 box of pre cut fresh broccoli florets 
onion 
*THE FOLLOWING INGREDIENTS ARE THE SAUCE I USED I DIDN"T MEASURE ANYTHING
tomato paste 
chili paste 
coconut aminos 
balsamic vinegar 
chicken broth 
seasonings 

Cook in crock pot - serve with cashews on top 

Day 10 Breakfast - Larabar and strawberries 

Day 10 Lunch - Ground turkey cooked with chipotle and ancho chili powder and mixed with muir glen organic salsa and a side of banana chips and guacamole. 


Day 10 Dinner - Poblano Pumpkin Curry 




3/4 of a bag of matchstick carrots 
3 poblano peppers diced 
1 onion diced 
3 chicken breasts 
1 can of coconut milk (next time I would use 2) 
1 can of pumpkin puree 
1 jar of red curry paste 
1 tbs lemongrass paste 
1-2 tbs ginger paste 
chicken broth (to desired consistency) 


Cook in crock pot on low for 8 hours 
Serve with toasted coconut flakes and pecans 


Next time I would also maybe add some serrano - I really wanted it to be spicy and it wasn't. It tasted great but I wanted heat. 



The plan for the next few days is

Day 11
B- Eggs and chicken sausage
L- Tuna and celery
D - Hamburgers with asian slaw and avocado

Day 12
B-Pumpkin Spice RX BAR



















L- Ground Turkey with banana chips and guacamole
D- Eggplan Marinara

Day 13
B- Eggs and chicken sausage
L- Tuna and celery
D - Leftover Curry


As far as cardio increase goes - yesterday I ran 1/2 mile without stopping which took me 6 minutes, plus I ran an extra minute for good measure. Tomorrow I may push myself to go 10 minutes. Today I didn't have a lot of time between work and opera rehearsal so I just did about a 20 minutes walk/jog around my neighborhood.

So far I am down 58 pounds since March.
I am down 70 pounds since my highest weight.
I am about 4 pounds away from my lowest ever college weight.
I am 10 pounds away from being the lowest weight of my entire adult life!!!!!

MOTIVATION TO KEEP PUSHING FORWARD
