2/27/12- Food Journal
Because I woke up feeling like I could eat my hand, I had a bigger breakfast. I had an egg white and egg with black pepper (it looks like there's something in side but there's not), a cinnamon raisin english muffin with 2 tbsp of Better N' Peanut Butter (which I was totally dying for!) and a banana. I had my tea when I got up but it was gone by breakfast time...
By lunch time, I was almost shaking so I was so glad that I didn't have too much to assemble today since I did it last night. While making dinner I also made the chicken noodle soup I was going to make all winter once cold weather set in and since that didn't happen, I made it anyway. Low sodium chicken broth, turnips, parsnips, carrots, spinach, peas, onions, red peppers, basil, boneless chicken breast and no yolk fine egg noodles. The noodles friggin' tripled in size overnight so it looks like a big bowl of saimin! For fruit salad I've got honeydew in place of watermelon, cantaloupe, clementine and grapes, my raw veggies with 1/2 tbsp dip, honeycrisp apple & apple dip, peanut butter oat bar (which I sadly can't fully taste yet) and iced tea. It held me for a few solid hours but by 4:30pm I was ready to eat paint off the walls and we don't usually eat dinner for about 3 hours after that. This is going to be one tough roller coaster ride!
Dinner was a quick throw together. Earlier in the day I gave my new food processor it's first workout and made some homemade refried beans (recipe next week) and decided to do deconstructed nachos. 4 oz chicken breast shredded with half a serving of TJ's enchilada sauce, 5 oz of my refried beans with 1 tbsp BBQ sauce, pea sprouts, 1/4 c sharp shredded cheese and 1 serving of Garden of Eatin' No Salt Tortilla Chips. On the left is deconstructed and on the right constructed into the perfect yummy bite.
My smell is intermittent so I'm hoping it holds out so I can taste these velvety nutella s'mores. 1 serving of Honeymaid Lowfat Graham Crackers, 1 tbsp Nutella and 1/2 serving of mini marshmallows. Not low cal but a wonderful treat given how much I've hacked today.
