I feel pretty good about my food intake yesterday. I snacked between meals only on the food I was preparing for dinner, like Corned Beef Hash from St. Patrick's Day, Pork Tacos from the previous week and a few bites of Sweet Potato chips. Not too bad considering I usually fill my days with items I will not mention right now (see day 1). So, now is the morning of day 2 and I have just finished some Oatmeal with Granola. I garnished it with toasted almonds and coconut, brown sugar and a bit of milk. I have a few things I am considering for Lunch....It's snowing and 25 degrees. I'm staying home!
Oatmeal with brown sugar, milk, pecans and granola
Planning either a Fiesta salad that has: Lettuce, avocado, fresh cilantro, red pepper, fried (GF) jalapeno coins, tortilla strips, and black beans. OR maybe an Asian style salad with lettuce, green onion,carrots, red pepper, cabbage, snow peas and chicken. ***Update: I had the Fiesta Salad...but did NOT have any black beans in the house. Was freaking out a bit but mixed the salad up and it is AHHH-MAY-ZING!
Planning to make a White Chicken Chili, grilled cheese with gluten-free bread, and salsa. Chili was very satisfying and delicious. It is award winning by the way.
Summary & highlights: All in all it was a pretty uneventful day. Eating breakfast each day has definitely helped curb my mid afternoon hunger/snacking. My only downfall yesterday was that we had a family movie night and everyone wanted to grab a box of candy, and I relented. My wonderful, caring son brought me back a box of....yes, you guessed it, Good & Plenty. I ate about half the box. And the box was 4.5 servings.
