Thanks guys for all of your input on protein for breakfast! Only sad thing is is that I am trying to avoid dairy because of some stomach problems, :( so lately the only thing I have been consuming that is similar is my lactose free cottage cheese. It basically keeps me sane. Yesterdays breakfast was pretty good but not as filling as my 6 egg whites :(. I had 1 chicken sausage, 1 slice of turkey bacon and peppers, and a bowl of oat bran.
I seriously tried to stay busy and out the house so I wouldn't eat because I was pretty hungry (I never thought Id be hungry eating strictly 1800 cals a day). I must really be a huge pig!!! haha!!
Lunch was a salad made with romaine and spinach, Green Pea Guac, and left over Turkey Meatballs. On the side I had some sweet potato chips and my fav. unsweetened ketchup.
After lunch I left the house again because I was still kinda hungry (I am telling you, I am an animal!) I took the little one to the library. She played and I looked at cook books. I ended up checking out these two.
My library does not have a very good selection. This was the only raw cookbook and basically the only healthy one. Anyway, the recipes in the raw cookbook look interesting but the sad thing is is that you need a dehydrator for most and I don't have one :(. When we left the library I was about to eat my face off so I ran in and made a huge bowl of dark chocolate oat bran with peanut butter. So good!
The man had business for dinner so I just made something quick and easy for myself. Chicken and Kale Chips...
A toasted spinach flatout wrap seasoned with sea salt and garlic powder and Green Pea Guac for dipping. Love that stuff!!!
After the man got home I decided it was time for desert (haha! I know what your thinking you dirty girl...or boy)....
Yum, perfect ending to my calorie counting filled day.
Today, was gym day and I had yet another successful full body workout. I have been busy most the morning running from gymnastics and to the doctor (no menstrual cycle) so no food pics yet today but I am about to cook up some lunch and then for dinner we are going to my new favorite restaurant. You can see Heather and I there, here. Cant wait!!
CONFESSION OF THE DAY: Thanks to the sweet and beautiful Heather and our lovely lunches together most of my restaurant anxiety is gone but I really feel it coming on strong for tonight. I know its a healthy restaurant but I am just worried about overeating because I have been watching my calories close and I have been so hungry lately. I really hope I don't over do things tonight!!
