Working out with Gunnar Peterson. Plus a Green Giant Giveaway!

Last week I started a new fitness challenge, The Gunnar Challenge. It's an 8 week online program crafted by Gunnar Peterson, personal trainer to a bunch of Hollywood stars. The program features a daily videos from Gunnar, a meal plan, exercise routines, a diary to to track food and exercise, and a forum to connect with other challenge members.

My new personal trainer.

I'm one week into the program and really enjoy it. The exercises are great and the videos from Gunnar are motivating. I am not following the meal plan because there are a lot of meals that include gluten, but I am still following the dietary recommendations as best I can.

Lots of salads, grilled chicken and fish, and of course vegetables. I usually eat raw veggies or steamed, but I was given the opportunity through MyBlogSpark to try their Green Giant frozen vegetables. Almost all frozen vegetables are gluten free, but some varieties with sauces or rice are not always gluten free. Here is a list to help you out with that.

Additionally several of the Green Giant vegetables have been endorsed by Weight Watchers. If you're counting points, the choice is simple as the points plus values are listed right on the front of the box. Easy Peasy. Literally.

If you're looking for ides for what to do with those veggies, check out some of these recipes.

In the spirit of fitness and nutrition I have a wonderful giveaway from Green Giant and MyBlogSpark! You could be the lucky owner if this prize pack:

My favorite veggie dish is Roasted veggies. I chop up whatever veggies I have or crave (always includes multi colored peppers and zucchini) and add a bit of olive oil and balsalmic vinegar and roast. I make a huge batch so I have extra veggies to use in other dishes throughout the week.
