This past week has been particularly hard.  We are moving house. TODAY.  In fact as you are reading this the kids and I are in the car and headed south on Hwy 1 toward San Diego.

So to say that fitting in exercise in between packing boxes, loading the truck, washing walls and windows and farewell dinners has been extremely difficult. 

Thank goodness I at least had a meal plan in place that definitely helped to keep me on track just a little.

And so begins week 4.  Hopefully this week I will find lots of time to exercise in-between un-packing boxes.

Recipe of the week:

Antipasto Platter

Antipasto Platter

Ingredients:

  • Zucchini
  • Asparagus
  • Mushrooms
  • Olive oil
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Mozzarella
  • Basil leaves
  • Roast beef
  • Prosciutto
  • Sun Dried Tomato Bruschetta
  • 75% reduced fat Cabot cheese
  • Artisan Split Crust Pesto Bread

Cut the zucchini in half and then into 5mm thick strips.  Cut the asparagus stalks a little shorter to make them more manageable as finger food.  You are going to grill the asparagus, zucchini and slices of pesto bread on the George Foreman for approximately 5 minutes each on medium-high.  While each of these is rotating, gently toss the mushrooms in a little olive oil in a pan on the stove.

Cut the mozzarella balls into quarters.  Carefully thread the cherry tomato, basil and mozzarella onto a small skewer.

Arrange each of your ingredients onto a plate, rolling the meats, slicing the cheese and placing the bruschetta in a small bowl with a knife for spreading.

Note:  You know I'm a big fan of our weekly 'do it yourself' night.  This is such a quick and easy dinner and you can add a variety of foods to your platter depending on the likes and dislikes of your family.  

Also, a big thank you to Katherine Marie (and the people from Cabot) who let me know that there was a 75% reduced fat cheese on my tuna melt post.  They actually had it in stock at my local Safeway store this week. 

Enjoy.

Good luck with the transition! A meal plan is perfect for getting you through busy times. Can’t wait to see how you settle in over the next few weeks.

Down 6 pounds! How flipping cool is that? Blasted nutrition, it’s my weakness. I have to get this down. Your photo looks yummy!

If you observe your body regularly and take nutritional diet then we can easily lose weight. The recipe Antipasto Platter is simply superb.
