Everything Must Change

Organic Chicken Caesar Salad
I follow the 90/10 rule when it comes to my diet and I typically cash in my 10 percent on Saturday's. Well, lately I've been working really, really hard on cleaning up my diet. So yesterday's cheat/treat meal looked completely different than in the past. I just couldn't see myself going too far off path. So for last night's dinner, I prepared a Chicken Caesar Salad. Yes, the dressing can be highly caloric but I went extremely light on the dressing and sprinkled plenty of lemon juice to enhance the flavor. For my after dinner treat (Which, I only have on Saturday's) my signature homemade chocolate chip cookies were calling my name but I didn't cave. Instead, I used the fresh peaches and blueberries I bought at the Farmer's Market to create a delightful little summer parfait. I feel so good about my decisions. I realize that in order to cash in on the ultimate prize, changes are necessary. You can't keep doing the same things and get different results. Everything must change.

Sweet Endings: Blueberries, peaches and a little bit of vanilla yogurt
