21DFX Halfway Point

Blueberries and yogurt

Scott and I are at the halfway point with 21 Day Fix Extreme.  I am so happy to be halfway done with this program!

I’m at a point where I feel a little frustrated with the program and so I’m thankful we are halfway done because I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

It’s extreme so it’s a little more restricting and that is the part that I have the most trouble with.  I just don’t eat that way naturally and it’s challenging to incorporate that into daily life.

I was getting bored with some of our eats so I’ve been branching out a bit and experimenting more in the kitchen.

Costco had a great deal on blueberries (I know, out of season but so hard to pass up when they are under $5!) and we enjoyed blueberries with yogurt for breakfast the past several days.

We had pizza earlier this week on a cauliflower crust.  I still need to tweak that recipe a bit but I’m on the right track with it.  I added in some grain free flours to help stretch the dough since it had to feed both of us.  It definitely satisfied a craving.

Last night we had zoodles with crab, tomato, and avocado and it was heavenly!  Seafood + avocado is one of my favorite combinations.  The creamy richness of the avocado pairs so well with the sweet briny flavors of seafood!

I’m still sticking with the plan but have reached a point where I need to experiment in the kitchen and create some new meals for us.  I feel like new adventures and journeys should be fun and not feel like work.

The challenge wraps up for us next week and I’ll have all the details about what I loved and didn’t love about the program.

Now I’m looking forward to the weekend and some super yummy eats!
