Today marks the day my sister-in-law and myself will be starting the Les Mills 21 Day Nutrition challenge. In short:
- No Carbs or Fruit (it’s just 3 weeks get over it)
- Palm size protein
- 2 handfulls of veggies
- 1 thumb oil
- All of the above at every meal – 5 meals a day
So I made a special last supper last night of chicken pot pie from scratch and new potatoes. Gotta get my carb fix! The recipe was originally from the Pioneer Woman, but I found two blogs for the crust and filling that had GREAT directions, and to be honest I think it could have been a disaster without their step-by-step.
The overall product was delicious! I did forget all the seasonings (salt, pepper, thyme) but oh well. Still pretty durn good, so I can only imagine how good it will be when I remember all the ingredients.
So I encourage you to try the 21-day challenge. It’s only 3 weeks, so what’s the problem? Plus, it’s a great way to work on meal prep!(my current downfall) and to put together a kick ass routine to get ready for… BIKINI SEASON!
