No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
Well, here I am again. Blogging my food and feelings.
No breakfast except for my usual coffee with cream and raw honey.
Lunch: a delicious meal of 2 different kinds of salad (both low in carbs) and some chunked chicken.
Supper: So far since I don't want to cave and have the pizza that my husband has in the oven, I am having a huge green smoothie: almond milk, water, 1/2 lemon with some rind on, 1T MCT oil (coconut), 2T flax meal, large handful of spinach and large handful of baby kale and about a cup of raspberries and a tiny bit of Kal Brand Stevia powder - maybe a sixteenth of a tsp. Fairly tart but quite tasty and satisfying.
Bought some NOW brand "Better Stevia" today. One is plain and says "non-bitter" and the other is "English Toffee" flavor (Dara uses it). Thought I'd try one of these in my coffee tomorrow a.m. to get away from the higher carb honey.
Later I had another bowl of oriental salad made with broccoli/ carrot slaw, lots of fresh parsley, green onions, nappa cabbage, roasted slivered almonds and roasted sunflower seeds and a yummy dressing.
Then I started to feel that urge to eat again but I knew I really wasn't hungry - it's just that "habit" when I am relaxing at the end of the day. So I settled for 10 olives.
So I succeeded today in that I chose to have that smoothie before I got too hungry. Even if I am very tired, as long as I have enough food to eat without having to do much preparation, then I have no excuse to eat junk.
It was a good day.
