It’s Food Week here on the BRS Blog, and we have started it off with a bang! My apologies for the late posting, but I’ve been busy today! First at the grocery store, and then in the kitchen, making food and taking photos!

I wanted to mention that I have added a new page to the blog, called Food Log, where you will be able to see our food logs for the day. You can click here, or you can access it by clicking on “Food Log” up to the right of “About Roux.” I have also added a section called “Recipes” in the same area, where you will be able to access the recipes that I feature on this blog.

Now, on with the food! πŸ™‚

Breakfast today wasn’t a terribly great one. I was in a rush, so I had a piece of whole wheat bread with peanut butter and an apple (specific amounts available on the Food Log page. It tasted good but it wasn’t as filling and didn’t hold me quite as long as my normal breakfast.


For lunch, we had a simple chicken breast sandwich, with mayo, grainy mustard, tomato, and arugula, on whole wheat bread. I have to admit that having a sandwich for lunch is really unusual for us… of course it would be on the day where I have pledged to report everything to our readers! I blame it on rushing around, poor planning and the simple fact that it’s Monday. πŸ™‚ We also had some Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies alongside the sandwich.


For snacks this afternoon, I had Babybel Cheddar Cheese (below), an orange, a few more cheddar bunnies (10 grams, to be exact), and half of a Larabar.


Ok, now here’s the part that will interest you the most: Our first recipe!

For dinner we had one of our favorites, and because of it’s simplicity, it’s become one of those staple recipes that I can always count on. Pork Medallions with Cherry Sauce. It is one of those recipes from “The Food You Crave” by Ellie Krieger, and Nick and I both love this recipe.

Nutritional information for the recipe is available on the recipe page.

Oh, and for dessert? A small square (4 grams) of milk chocolate with cashews. Gotta have a little bit of sweet to end the day. πŸ˜‰

Hope you all had a great start to the week. Keep sending in those recipes for the mini-challenge!
