This is it you guys! We are pretty much at the end of the 2 week challenge! I am happy to report that I am already feeling more confident in the kitchen and I have loved introducing more fresh ingredients into our daily eats. It only makes sense that since we work out daily, that we should be filling ourselves with the fuel that we need to make it through the day. We are feeling much better after eating healthier these last two weeks!
The hubby was very helpful with the recipes and was even excited to make a few of them - even Olivia enjoyed them! My favorite recipe over the past two weeks was definitely the BBQ Brisket! It was absolutely delicious and it was SO easy to make (I also love that we had leftovers for days afterwards!) We even dusted off our roaster rack (from our wedding!!) and used it to cook the brisket!
My favorite Colavita product to use these past few weeks was definitely the Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I literally use it in every recipe and couldn't cook without it! Make sure to head over to Colavita and use code: EatFresh20 to get 20% off your order as well as free shipping over $99!
I was thrilled to finally try pine nuts in one of the recipes we made this week too. Crazy as it sounds, I've never used them in a recipe before and I LOVE them!
I made quite a few recipes this week that were out of my comfort zone. I usually stick to "italian" dishes and these ranged from asian to irish and I really enjoyed cooking different cuisines!
I wanted to show you this really amazing feature on Cooking Planit (available in the app as well) -- the Cook Now option! This takes you step by step through the recipe so that all of your dishes are done at the same time. It also builds in time for you to do your dishes (or have a glass of wine with your hubby) ;)
Also, be sure to visit Cooking Planit's YouTube channel, I just love their videos on prepping fruits and veggies. This week I watched this one on how to cut up carrots!
