So today is obviously Day 3, but I have included a review and approximate calories below of what I had yesterday. I am probably going to have something similar over the next few days so I won't bore you with my eating habits. But, I will tell you I have wanted to quit at least 10 times today. I ate breakfast at 8:30am and it's hitting 11:00am now and I am starving!! I just made some tea and I ate three cashews (I normally would eat a toast of some sort, or a fruit something if I wasn't tracking my consumption). But, the plus side was today I definitely felt like a gazelle getting out of bed. Not like weight wise (although that has dropped already), but like this weird airy (not gassy) feeling.
Here's to hoping I stick this out for 21 days....but my first goal is to get through 7 days. The weekend will be the big test. I am already scheming how to get those pancakes on my plate. Andrew and I had quinoa pancakes this past week (exactly as boring as they sound), and so with the right amount of fruit, it should settle any cravings or fomo.
1/3 cup Oatmeal in water, 1/2 frozen berries & 1 teaspoon peanut butter (164 calories)
I ended up making 5 veggie patties, and I ate two. So it averaged out to roughly 1/2 cup of pinto beans, 1/3 cup quinoa, 2/5 cup of carrots and sauteed red onion & broccoli, which was cooked in 2/5 tsp of coconut oil. I had these on a bed of spinach (1 cup) with 3 slices of eggplant and 2 cherry tomatoes. The dressing was just balsamic vinegar and mustard. (315 calories)
House Salad from the Good Bite Kitchen. 1 1/2 cups of spring mix, 1/2 cup of roasted red peppers 1/4 cup of chick peas, avocado & pine nuts with 2 tsp of Maple Vinaigrette (260 calories)
1/2 cup of quinoa. 1/2 cup of chickpea pasta. Oven roasted a cup of cauliflower, 1/4 cup of tofu and 1/4 of sweet potato with some spices. Added a red wine vinegar and mustard sauce. (421 calories)
Note: These sauces I am adding are just to get some extra flavor since salt is a no no. Everything I cook normally has salt...plus Andrew loves his salt so it gets added double time. Himalayan Pink Sea Salt if you are wondering.
