I’ve been on a bit of a health kick lately — Monday through Friday, anyway. I’ve done the puree diet a couple times over the past month and will do it again next week. This week my breakfast/morning snacks are kale/beet/apple juice, two six-minute eggs and a cup of berries, lunch is a Think Thin bar (peanut butter), and dinner is a lean protein with vegetables. 

Case in point: tonight Laura came over for a little Metamorphosis by Tracy and dinner. The Tracy-approved menu: turkey burger with half an avocado and an oil-free salad with a drizzle of lemon juice and freshly-ground black pepper. The turkey burger was flavored with minced spring onion, garlic, and parsley — and an egg and a bit of salt (shh, don’t tell Tracy!). It was totally delicious and satisfying (it helps to enjoy it while sipping a glass of Tracy-approved (!) wine and sitting on a breezy terrace with a dear friend). 

Then we had a discussion about how the massive high-fructose corn syrup content in fast/junk food has rewired the American brain to crave sweetness like never before.

I will say this for Tracy’s various diets: she’s curbed my sugar addiction, and that’s not a bad thing.

Nora never fails to impress. Gorgeous plating of a delicious (and nutritious!) meal post intense workout was just what the doctor ordered for Hump Day. I will surely be replicating this meal again.
