Day Two Eat To Live
Saturday, March 24, 2012
Yesterday went well. My only minor trip up (if it was a trip up at all) was eating some crackers from costco... they are made with seeds and no oil so I think they are fairly OK.
I was down 0.4lbs this morning, although I got up a bit later which may influence the numbers a little.
After breakfast (same as yesterday, grapefruit, apple, kiwi) I did feel a little hungry after a couple of hours but I kept from eating by having a cup of rooibus tea and that kept me going until lunch. I had a BIG lunch... a big plate of salad, like the one from yesterday's blog but minus the corn and plus some blueberries. I also had a cup of lentil stew from the Eat To Live book (it's OK... a bit bland but it's OK..) and half a whole wheat pita with some egglant and spinach dip. It was a recipe I found online when researching how to cook eggplant. I had to modify it a bit (it called for 2 cups of basil which I don't have so I added 2 cups spinach and some dried basil) and I didn't have nutritional yeast so I just skipped it. It was pretty yummy.
Last night for dinner I had some potatoes, lots of greens and some carrots. I nibbled a little of the vegan roast that I'd cooked for the rest of the family.
Today I'm going to have a smoothie as a snack around 4ish I think. I have lots of frozen bananas and I also have fresh strawberries and blueberries.
I'm feeling the same as yesterday with everything else, although I'm a little less tired, thanks to a sleep in!
