For the record I went AWOL on some far fetched attempt to try the Fat Flush Regime. Who was I kidding??? I’m sure it’s a great alternative for countless folks attempting to not only lose weight, but more importantly dramatically improve their health. Let’s just say I failed. After one week, I felt fine. But after two weeks without caffeine (decaf is taboo too), carbonation, wine, dairy, wheat or any kind of fat other than 2 T of flaxseed oil, I was feeling well…bored. And a little pissy too.
Have no fear. I’m back in the saddle again. And with a vengeance. To celebrate my epiphany tonight I dressed the table with a sensuous fare from my Barefoot Contessa. Subconsciously, I must have been planning this meal for several days. I happened upon a Chefography Show on Lifestyle featuring Ina Garten. I knew most of her success story from reading her cookbooks cover to cover and watching her FoodTV show. But, this show was all I needed to pull my head out of the salt-free sand I’ve been buried in.
It doesn’t get much better than the Parisian inspired meal I made this evening. Allow me to elaborate….
All on a Tuesday night.
No gut(s), no glory. Literally.
