#MNBChallenge Week 2–Nourish

nourish your body

This week’s focus was nourishing your body. The challenges from Lorna Jane Active encouraged us to focus on what we put in our body. It was good to focus on my clean eating. Being that I was trapped in the house most of the week due to the winter snowstorm that blanketed the East coast, it was good to focus on what I ate so as not to fall into bad habits and overeat. Here’s my recap:

Monday – Meatless Monday ~ No pics but I had a wonderful dinner of stuffed shells and roasted Brussels sprouts that was to live for! Yummy!

Tuesday – Take Your Lunch to Work Day ~ I do this almost daily. My jar salad was awesome that day with tuna added for protein. I like to use nuts in my jar salads for both crunch and amped up protein factor.

I made the salad in the salad dressing jar so I could use the last dregs of the dressing.  If you haven’t tried OPA yet, you should.  Their Greek yogurt dressings are so yummy and definitely nourishing.

Wednesday – Write it Down ~ I use My Fitness Pal to keep track of what I eat.  My focus lately is less on calories and more on making sure I balance my carbs, proteins, and healthy fats.  As such, I was excited to share my progress on Wednesday. I came in within my goals.

Thursday – Smoothie Day! I love my smoothies and have one almost every day.

My beet smoothie has fresh beets, carrots, banana, and coconut milk! It is so sweet and full of good vitamins and minerals.

Friday – Go Raw Friday! Valentine’s Day! ~ After attending my friend’s wedding ceremony, I came home to a wonderful dinner with my hubby and son. He made baked Swai fish topped with kiwi and his own version of vegetarian lo mein. I was in charge of dessert and decided that I would do fresh fruit and homemade fondue.
