June 17th Food and Exercise Journalc

by Alison on June 18, 2010

I managed my 30 minutes on the bike, it was torture but I survived! 😛 okay so I’m being a bit melodramatic.  I had a really boring day and have nothing much to say except if you have never had cucumbers cooked you need to try them.  If you look at the picture below you will see chunks of cucumber that I steamed/sautéed in water and butter (same thing I do for green beans 1 tsp butter per serving so 2 in most cases and about 1/3 cup of water cook for 3-5 minutes depending how crunchy you like your veggies.  Toss them occasionally with the lid on to get the butter everywhere, it’s amazing how far a teaspoon of butter can go with water.  Seriously cucumber tastes awesome this way, try it!  For breakfast I had cherry vanilla oatmeal and for lunch I had greek yogurt with granola and blueberries, lots of blueberries.  For dinner we had leftover Chicken Feta Pasta and the cucumber (try it!) and for a snack I had some skinny cow ice cream, I really hate the list of ingredients but it is tasty.

Saw your interview on Robin’s blog! Nice blog! The picture on this post is making me hungry. I will try the cucumbers. I don’t know why I’ve never thought of that.

Congratulations on all of the progress you’ve made! I also evolved into running through exercise and proper nutrition. You’re doing so well for yourself!

I look forward to getting to know you better.

Hey Alison!
As always, the dish looks yummy. 🙂 Have never thought of cooking cucumbers, but I’m a pretty open-minded cook, so I’ll give it a try and let you know what hubs thinks. As for feta, one of my faves!!

And yes, I agree: our friends need the darn post emailed to them, hence the “Open Letter” format… lots of people need to read it, and um, maybe get it, already! Feel free to send them the link! 😉

HUGS from Orlando!
