The husband and I had a low-key July 4th. We did some gardening, worked out, ran some errands, grilled out, and then watched a movie. Nothing fancy, but I must say it’s nice to wake up hungover from copious amount of alcohol. Here was the day in food:
Chopped squash with a cheese stick and balsamic vinaigrette – weird I know (I’m trying to use up the crisper full of squash)
Workout: P90X Shoulders & Back and Ab Ripper DVDs
Mexican Egg White Veggie Scramble
(2 HUGE servings)
– 2 cups egg whites
– medium squash
– medium zucchini
– medium onion
– 1/2 cup salsa
– 1/2 cup 2% cheese
– spices: cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, paprika
I sauteed the veggies & spices first (a dash of each) on medium heat. Then I added salsa and stirred it around, followed by the egg whites:
It was a little watery, so next time I will add the salsa after the eggs are cooked.
Top with cheese and enjoy!
I also had two clementines:
One was perfectly sweet and one was just okay.
An end slice of whole wheat tuscan pane with light cream cheese
Grilled Tinfoil Vegetables
– medium onion
– large squash
– large zucchini
– handful baby carrots
– dash of dill
– 1 Tbsp olive oil
– 1 Tbsp lemon juice
Place a double layer of heavy duty foil on counter. Fill with chopped vegetables; top with olive oil, lemon juice, and spices. Close vegetables tightly into long foil package. Grill for 30 minutes or until desired consistency, then top with Parmesan cheese.
We also grilled corn and burgers (96/4). Jim put cheese in the middle of his, and I added onions & garlic powder to mine. The corn was delish and super easy. All you do is pull back the husks, remove the silk, coat with butter and salt (we used spray butter), replace the husks, and then grill for 10-20 minutes (turn regularly). While everything was grilling, I enjoyed one of these:
Kenan might have enjoyed a few sips of Jim’s:
He’s almost 21 in dog years, so I let it slide 😉
My plate – I finished everything but was stuffed afterward! Must be the beer appetizer!
I had another beer while we watched the movie (Pursuit of Happiness) and 1/2 cup of Edy’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream:
We opted for the “real deal” instead of the light – those 30 extra calories are worth it! 🙂
Breakfast today was the leftover Mexican Egg White Veggie Scramble…
…and a piece of whole wheat tuscan pane with almond butter & apple butter:
I’m not sure what’s on the agenda today besides a workout and tidying up around the house. Hope everyone else is enjoying this beautiful Sunday! Oh, and don’t forget to check out Angie’s Trader Joe’s Giveaway! 🙂
