It’s Video Time Again! – Frugal Novice

It’s Video Time Again!

It’s been another week – I can hardly believe it! My second week on Freshology has absolutely flown by, and I’m still loving it! I have to admit that I had a little nervousness about making a two-month commitment. I mean, I didn’t know how difficult it might be to stick to it! Little did I know, this is the easiest diet I’ve ever tried.

Before I get to my video, let’s take a look at my food for today. Be sure and check out the video too so you can find out how much I’ve lost this week!

Breakfast: Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal with Fresh Berries & Canadian Bacon (220 calories)


I actually liked this oatmeal a LOT! I haven’t had it in a long time, and let’s be honest, oatmeal isn’t very appealing to look at… so I was hesitant to try it. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was full of flavor and a great texture. It seriously made me want to add oatmeal to my breakfast routine once I’m done with Freshology.

Lunch: Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Salad with Feta Cheese (310 calories)

This was my favorite salad I’ve had so far. The vinaigrette dressing was just tangy enough to balance the saltiness of the feta, and the marinade on the chicken was very slightly sweet. So good, and actually filling too!

Dinner: Roasted Turkey Breast with Sauteed Spinach, Roasted Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Citrus Aioli (465 calories)

After a breakfast and lunch I loved this was kind of average to me. The turkey was good and well-flavored, and the sweet potatoes were really good. I don’t like mushrooms or tomatoes that much, so I just picked at those, and I discussed my ambiguity toward cooked greens in last night’s post.

Dessert: Marshmallow Cloud (160 calories)

I thought this photo might give you a better idea of the size of this dessert. I was SOOO happy to have this one again. It is delicious and I’d have it every day if I could!

Now let’s take a look at my weekly video:

And here are a few of those tips I promised to share with you from the Freshology Newsletter.

  • Be attentive to your breathing. Mindful breathing slows down the heart rate, reducing stress, and allows us to take more oxygen to the brain, raising the capacity to think more clearly.
  • Be honest about your eating. If you’re in denial about your habits, you can’t change them.
  • Try new, flavorful recipes so you still get variety in your diet while keeping it healthy. Check out this recipe for roasted squash wheels stuffed with Goat Cheese. Yum!
