7 Day Challenge, Day 1!!! Grilled Salmon Packets!!!

Standard

So Chad and I are embarking on a 7 day challenge… which means we have to eat perfect for 7 days straight to see what results we can achieve. Just so you know we are currently in weightloss mode. We are trying to lose weight to be in the best health possible for ourselves and our family. Now in our household, eating perfect means taking all our Herbalife products and eating healthy “real” food. So a typical day looks like this:

Breakfast: Herbalife Shake… my breakfast preference is a Vanilla Cappuccino

Lunch: Herbalife Shake… my absolute fav is Strawberry Cheesecake

Snack: Cheese stick and nectarine or Greek yogurt and homemade granola or cottage cheese and apple… you get the idea… eat a protein and a healthy carb.

Dinner: A colorful meal… A protein, lots of veggies and fruit for dessert.

Snack: For night time snacks I like to do a protein and veggies. It’s better to have less sugar before bed. At least for me it is.

There you have it! A perfect day. So the next 7 days I am going to devote to blogging our colorful meals with you. Plus, on Wednesday Aug 14 I will share our results, and I can only imagine how AWESOME they are going to be!

Day 1:

salmon zucchini green beans

Grilled Salmon Packets

4 Salmon fillets (I used the Schwan’s kind today)

2 small zucchinis, sliced

1 lb farm fresh green beans

Italian seasoning

salt and pepper

garlic powder

dried chopped onion

butter

olive oil

water

4 pieces aluminum foil (large enough to wrap salmon and zucchini)

Place 1 salmon and 1/4 of the sliced zucchini on a piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Fold ends together to make a packet. Leave a little air in it for the steam to move around.

Repeat with remaining salmon and zucchini.

Place on grill on medium heat. Grill in packet until salmon flakes apart.

For the green beans… Place about a tbsp. of butter and a tbsp. of olive oil in a fry pan and add the green beans. Fry until most of oil and butter is absorbed. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, garlic powder, chopped onion. Toss around and add about 1/2 c of water or so. Bring water to a boil and then reduce to simmer and simmer until water is mostly evaporated about 15 minutes.

I served it with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and pineapple. ENJOY!!!!
