6 Pack 6 Week 10 – We Have A Winner!

Boy this is getting complicated! Lisa tied with Judy last week and Chrissy this week, which gives her the tie breaker over Judy for the week 9 prize – wow!

Bottom Line is Lisa is getting for a $25 check for week 9, and week 10’s prize rolls over into next week! Great job Lisa!

Last week was our restoration week, with no bootcamp classes, just “homework”. Some of you did a great job keeping up with things, while others had more of a challenge. Now is a great time to evaluate what you did well and what needs more work during the times you are not as accountable. Don’t get discouraged, just get better!

There are two weeks left in our contest, and it couldn’t be tighter at the top!

Now is not the time to falter!

Make It Happen!

Wednesday’s Food log for Nancy


7:30 Nutty Crunch protein shake from Gourmet Nutrition by John Berardi. I had planned an omelet but I found out with an hour to get ready, say goodbye to my parents, and get the kids set that I had a business meeting in Concord. Even though I had all the veggies chopped I didn’t have time to make it so I substituted with a shake.

11 PM 6 oz chicken, spinach salad, strawberries, craisins. Again I had planned on corn beef and cabbage but it didn’t sit well the night before so I substituted leftover chicken instead.

2 PM 15 roasted almonds. I made almond butter for later in the week with the rest. They smell so good roasting.

5 PM tacos- 3 oz hamburger, homemade refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, cheddar cheese, whole wheat tortilla. Dinner was interrupted by company. I finished dinner around 6:15 at which time I had a second taco prepared the same way.

Need the Recipe?

Yesterday I posted our weekly food plan but I didn’t fill you in on some of the recipes I use. So here is a great version of a recipe I first found in Gourmet Nutrition by John Beradi.


Chickpea cakes

¼ cup onion

¼ cup chopped spinach, cooked

1 teaspoon butter

1 teaspoon garlic, chopped

½ teaspoon ginger, chopped

1 cup cooked chickpeas, drain if using canned

1 whole egg

1 egg white

¼ salt

pepper to taste

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 Tablespoon olive oil


Preheat a frying pan to medium. Add butter and sauté onion until soft and lightly browned.  Add garlic, ginger and sauté another minute. Now add mixture to food processor along with the chickpeas, eggs, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Puree to a semi-smooth consistency. Stir in the spinach. With frying pan on medium heat, add a Tablespoon olive oil and scoop a ball of chickpea mixture then shape into a pancake. Repeat process, leaving room between cakes. Cook until lightly browned. Carefully flip cakes and brown other side.

These can be served as a side dish or garnish with plain yogurt for a wonderful snack. We had these yesterday and were a hit with my kids and my parents who are visiting.

Meal Planning for a Week

So many of you have asked ” So….. what do you eat?” Well now is your chance to get an inside look into our family’s mealtimes. I plan meals for three different types of people all within our family. Dean, who is blogging his food, has special needs as to his intake of starchy carbs. The kids do not need to worry about weight loss, they are very active preschoolers. I also watch what I eat but tolerate most foods in moderation.

Why do I say all that? You can’t copy exactly what I do and get the results you desire. This is a tool to add to your tool box. You’ll need to create a personal food log and meal plan. What works for me might not get all the results you are looking for.
