Happy New Year Resolutions! And a Giveaway!

new years resolution

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.

Yummy, right?  The easy part is that each day of of BistroMD meals is designed to provide you with the right balance of lean protein, complex carbs, and healthy fat ratios.  There are no added chemicals, hormones, or unnecessary fillers or additives in our meals. They completely take the guess work out of meal planning and put experts in your kitchen.  There’s dietician support, vibrant communities on both Facebook and Twitter, customizable menus, a blog, and much more.

    Wow, these meals sound good. I tried a month of Nutrisystem gormet diabetic plan and almost all of it was absolutely inedible. I think all those stars are totally lying that they ate that Nutrisystem crap. Plus it had a lot of sugary snacks and it made my blood sugar go out of control and it was the diabetic plan!
