Turns out the person who runs this boot camp feels nutrition is just as crucial. And I truly believe this also. What's the point of rolling out of bed at 4:30 am if you aren't fully committed? I figured we'd be told to increase veggies, get rid of high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils and most things processed. That would be easy--because that's how I already it. But no.
I just got a detox plan in my in-box. No more bacon, chocolate or even coffee with cream and sugar. Hello meals consisting of protein powder and fruit. Pretty much.
Thankfully dinners are a bit more user friendly and Fridays include a free hour were I can eat whatever I want. I am not going to waste this hour!
My boot camp starts Tuesday so Monday, Memorial Day, will be my 'last supper'. And on a very positive note, Copper River season has begun so bring on the fresh wild fish :)
Monday: BBQ Chicken breast, grilled (chicken breast marinated in a local BBQ sauce) with multi-grain rolls and spinach salad
Tuesday: Copper River Salmon wrapped in cedar paper along with mix of veggies (peppers, mushrooms, summer squash) wrapped in cedar paper and grilled, with a sweet potato
Wednesday: Sauteed Mahi-mahi, pineapples and bok choy with brown rice
Thursday: Bison burger (slider size) with mammoth cheddar on multi-grain roll and spinach salad with cucumbers, carrots and tomatoes
Friday: Rigatonni with Butternut Squash and Kale (this is a fall dish but it is my very favorite dish--and it's super creamy and fattening ☻)
Hmmm....looking at the menu, it doesn't look that bad. Maybe this will be tasty after all?!

****Please be sure to take a moment and pray for our fallen soldiers this Memorial Day. They paid the ultimate sacrifice and remind us freedom is anything but free.****
