Tuesday's for the Tummy

Hey hey hey!

I'm in a FABULOUS mood today because it's my day off and I have no plans! So i'm going to be flying by the seat of my yoga pants today and see where I end up!

Like I said yesterday I'm gearing up for the 24 Day Challenge, I did the 10 Day cleanse,Read about that HERE. Through out the cleanse, I explored some recipes but I felt I repeated a lot. Now I have a full 24 days to go through and I really wanted to try some new things each week. I plan on posting each week about new recipes I find and try and how I like them, they will all be 100% cleanse approved. I like to follow the rules to the T, I mean I dished out 200 doll hairs on this bad boy, I ain't wasting that cash for nothing. --Side note: speaking of money, has anyone else seen the new 100 dollar bills, like EW they just look straight up like monopoly money. I took one yesterday and I felt like I should of just passed go or was buying a railroad... -- Here are two awesome recipes for ya today.

Happy Steamers

1/2 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped.
2 cups chopped boccoli 
2 cups chopped cauliflower 
1/4 medium red onion
1 3/4 cup snap peas
6 asparagus spears
12 string beans

This is 255 calories right here, I made up a few ziplock baggies of these and threw them in the fridge/freezer. Then I just throw them in my steamer ( I have this one from Tupperware ). I like to put some spray butter, garlic, sea salt and mrs dash lemon pepper seasonings on them and of course add some Chulula hot sauce, YUM! Goes great with a chicken breast.

Spicy Tuna Cakes

10 oz tuna
2 egg whites
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Chopped Onion
Chopped Green Pepper
1 Small can chopped Green Chili 

In a bowl combine all ingredients. Spray a skillet with non stick and place over medium heat, shape tuna patties a cook like a burger, browning each side lightly. I made  7 of these and they come out to 64 calories each.

Now while my fatty mcpatty mind is in food mode and thinking about eating. 

My girl Abigail over at According to Abigail, just finished the 10 day cleanse. As I was reading her post today and throughout the cleanse, she has some stellar food ideas, I stole this from her:

Steel cut oats with natural peanut butter & sauteed apples with cinnamon

I think this looks freaking delicious, she also had a bunch of other food ideas as well that I guarantee I will be stealing.

Any good recipes I should be trying?!

Happy Tuesday!!
