So I've done OK with the 30 day shred, except today I was interrupted mid workout by a baby poo emergency, or at least hubs swearing loudly and a lot and baby screaming. So I went to assist.
As for the new foods I'm adding to my diet here's what I've tried so far and my personal opinion. It's more likely an opinion on how well I can execute new recipes (i.e. no well).
Swiss Chard - the stems were boiled in a chicken stock then added to the frying pan with the leafy portion. The stems were good the leafy portion was bitter and gritty (maybe I didn't wash it well enough).
Dragon Fruit - good mild taste, it has the texture and watery-ness of a water melon and the taste of a kiwi
Parsnips - not bad, much like a potato, I roasted it with thyme. All the veggies in the roasting pan were dry, including the carrots. Next time I think I'll add a little chicken stock to the roasting pan.
Acorn Squash - good, sweet, a little dry again, probably due to the recipe, which was the same recipe as the parsnips.
On the docket still to try and in my fridge already: Rutabaga & fennel. I need to go shopping for 4 more new foods. I'm thinking one will be quinoa.
