Getting Closer

We have been blowin’ and goin’ over here at the Giffin residence. The wedding is right around the corner and we feel it! We are stopping to eat though and trying our best to make healthy choices.

Now that the wedding is a month away I have decided to buckle down on the healthy eats. I usually make healthy choices but definetly eat ice cream 2-3 times a week and love my carbs.

I feel as though the time has come to get serious about this wedding diet. Last night we had fresh veggies and roasted a whole chicken. Roasting a chicken to enjoy for the week is brilliant. It is affordable, healthy and delicious. AND with my mother’s fabulous oven it took less than an hour on 400. We tied the bird’s legs under to ensure even cooking, stuffed the cavity with garlic, rosemary and thyme and let it go until our thermometer reached 165.

I feel like this will be a staple for Bowen and myself, so easy and you have chicken for salads all week! I’m off to enjoy the rest of the day, friends. Bowen just got in the freezing cold pool and my dad is cranking up the grill for ribs (not diet friendly) but oh well!
