In addition to Boot Camp I have also tried to add in other little exercises and adapt a few new healthy habits and give my self daily and weekly goals. I love-making out lists and checking them off when I have completed tasks, so why not do the same thing with daily goals, so when I saw this post on Plank Club, I just knew I had to join in. So I started with a base line of a 45 second plank. Then each day I will try to add-on an additional 5 seconds.

Now I’m not going to say that it was an easy 45 seconds, there was a “Whole Lotta  Shakin Going On”, but I did it, and I plan on doing it everyday and increasing my time where I can, my hope is to add-on to the daily time.

So now to the good stuff…Food. I am a good eater, 81.5 % of the time. I normally make healthy choices, and one thing I really love are grains and seeds. I try to keep them on hand and pre cook them so I can add them as a side dish to a meal or make it into a nice lunch or dinner bowl, here is last nights dinner bowl.

Apple flavored Chicken Sausage.

Grilled on my panini maker, I will be getting my outdoor grill out of winter storage this week-end, just in time for some amazing weather.

Grilled for about 15 minutes.

Then the most important part the grains and seeds. 1/2 Cup of Farro and 1/2 Cup of Quinoa in 1 cup of water with vegetable stock packet.

I had this batch pre cooked so I just needed to reheat it.

Then I just started to layered on the goodness from some leftovers I had on hand.

Cut up Cucumbers, Cauliflower and Feta Cheese from yesterdays meal, Roasted Chickpeas, the Apple Chicken Sausage with Quinoa and Farro.

This certainly was a Mixed Bowl of Goodness.

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite Grain or Seed?
