Hard Body Challenge- Day 6

Let me tell you… egg whites are disgusting. And it is entirely impossible to eat more than a few portioned amounts without throwing it all away cuz the thought makes your stomach upset. I made these egg white and spinach cups, with homemade Pico de Gallo. Remember a “meal” is 6oz meat, 1 cup carb, 1 cup dense green vegetables.

I’d eat the egg/spinach with red potato hash brown and alternate with chicken/quinoa (or red potatoes) and broccoli/celery. After 4 meals of egg/spinach, I dumped the other 5. Never been so happy. 😉

This may be something you already know, but all “flour” is NOT always wheat. I thought flour was always a “wheat” thing, until I learned that it just means whatever grain’ish type product, you pulverize to death becomes “flour”. For example, oat, rye, spelt, buckwheat, barley, amaranth and a wide variety of “nuts”, call become a “flour”.

So, today I made bread (it’s what “they” call it). 3/4 egg white, 3/4 oat flour and 1.5 Scoops of protein powder. My protein powder is chocolate. As a yummy result, chocolate bread. It actually tasted good, a tad bland, but not bad. I think if I could have added oil, some sort of butter/margarine, and actually water (I don’t know if that affects bread denseness), it would have been pretty de-lish. At this point in the RTDI diet, the above or excluded.

Meanwhile, I managed to make sweet potatoes round fries, Turkey meatballs, and kale/spinach/ginger/lemon smoothies. As I am not really a chef, or cook much for that matter, I seasoned according to “taste”, and with whatever I could find in my cabinets.

It was a little confusing how many types and varieties any given “natural-state-of-food” can come in. Not to mention how many “substitutes ” exist for any given food thing. I remember having spaghetti made from squash with my roommates. It was definitely tasty, but I don’t think I would call it that.

I have always known how much I love all these “natural” juices and smoothies. But, taking out your Oester blender each time you make a single serving portion, with the clean-up to follow, sucked.

I went and bought a Ninja 900 watt 18 or 24 oz smoothie/juicer. Can’t wait to try it out in 2 hours. 😉

Know of any blenders that are pretty awesome?
