This is truly an unusual year, so far. January is nearing to a close and my New Year Resolution is still in full effect! YAY! On the other hand, I went about the whole resolution process quite differently. I didn’t go for some outlandish, unattainable goal. In fact, I went for pure simplicity. My one resolution was “to eat healthier.”
And I must admit, I haven’t fallen off the wagon at all. For instance, I am was quite the soft drink consumer. Few things could get me going like that liquid crack that is called Coca Cola. On January 1st, I announced to my completely astonished family that I would not be drinking Coke anymore. Of course, they nodded knowingly. However, I’m happy to report that this is Day #27 and I am soda free. In fact, I’ve hardly had anything other than water.
So, when BistroMD tweeted me to offer a sample of their doctor designed gourmet meals and meal delivery system, I couldn’t refuse. It fit right into my resolution plans. A huge cooler was delivered right to my door, filled with meals packed in dry ice. The selections sounded yummy and I couldn’t wait to try them. Here are a couple of my favorites:
The top picture is one of the breakfast selections:
Sweetened low-fat cream cheese is laced with extract of vanilla bean and ground cinnamon and complemented by a mixed berry compote with a turkey breakfast sausage patty.
The bottom is one of the dinners:
A North Atlantic salmon filet is oven seared and presented over a smooth fire-roasted red and yellow bell pepper coulis, served with a blended quinoa with a julienne of sun dried tomatoes, slivered Kalamata olives and a chopped leaf spinach.
