Real Food Challenge – Week 13

Posted Mar 31 2013 6:50pm

Hi everyone, here’s Real Food Challenge , Week 13.

Oatmeal with Apples and Walnuts Eggs and Potatoes Pinkberry Spinach Salad

It was beautiful out on Saturday so I took advantage of the nice weather and went on a long run by the water followed by a few strength training circuits. I capped off my workout with an apple trip to our favorite neighborhood joint for eggs smothered in cheese, home fries, and toast and then immediately to Pinkberry for some chocolate frozen yogurt.

Luckily, the same math proof provided in this post  works for all diner food…and Easter candy (so don’t worry if you ate a Cadbury Cream Egg at breakfast, lunch, and dinner).

No, you’re not buying it? Oh, okay, I’ll just admit it then: Challenge FAIL!

I had such a great time on my run. I love seeing the city spring (get it) back to life once the weather warms up. The park was filled with budding trees, joggers and bicyclists, cafe workers setting up outdoor tables, kids playing in the grass, dogs free of their cold weather vests, people who’ve traded in their hot coffees for iced, and one woman sitting on a bench reading a Nelson DeMille novel while enjoying a vanilla ice cream cone.

I hope you all had a great weekend.

Smoothie Tomato Salad


Steel-cut oatmeal with finely diced apples, toasted walnuts, cinnamon, and brown sugar (inspired from a recent episode of America’s Test Kitchen – it was so good).

2 eggs scrambled with cheddar cheese, home fries, and one slice of rye toast

One-half of a small chocolate Pinkberry with strawberries, coconut, and dark chocolate chips

Spinach salad with tuna, kalamata olives, cucumbers, and grape tomatoes with a homemade dressing of extra virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic salt, and pepper.

Vegetable spring roll

Plain seltzer

Cup of peppermint tea


Same as Saturday

Smoothie with one frozen banana, one cup of frozen mixed berries, two handfuls of fresh spinach, and orange juice

Brown rice crackers and a handful of trail mix

Two hard boiled eggs, one slice of Bread Alone whole grain toast with flax seeds and sesame seeds, grape tomatoes and shallots drizzled in extra virgin olive oil and balsamic glaze, and a few kalamata olives (this is the Easter dinner one has when your family is scattered across the country and neither you nor your husband can build up any energy to cook…or make a reservation for that matter)

One half of a raspberry cream egg (thanks, Mom)
