Today I worked more on the policy analysis paper. I will be so happy when tomorrow comes so that I can finally just turn it in and get it off my hands and out of my mind!
(Well unless you wanna count pacing back and forth whilst thinking about that darn paper...)
180 g bulk red radishes and about 90 g of peeled turnips, boiled in no-sodium chicken broth
60 g of egg beaters and 2 real egg whites cooked as a spinach omelet
THIS biscuit. Tastes just like the cheddar biscuits at Red Lobster that I haven't had in years
All smothered in low carb ketchup and Walden Farms pancake syrup
55 g left over shredded chicken breast (not the canned kind)
1 oz no salt added tomato sauce
7 g of Swiss cheese (I had no Mozzarella, unfortunately. But I was happy to find out that Swiss is low sodium)
about a 1/2 tsp of grated parmesan....
all on top and in between a ONE MINUTE MUFFIN sans sweetener that I formed into a bun. It was really a twenty minute muffin, because I used the oven instead of the microwave. I used 13 g of golden flaxseed meal and 13 g of Jennifer's Splendid Low-Carb Baking mix, a serving of egg beaters instead of an egg, and a tsp of Smart Balance Light instead of butter. Hey, be easy on me. I'm still recovering!
Cream of Broccoli Soup
About a cup and a half (I didn't bother to measure) of leftover steamed broccoli, pulsed in the Ninja
About a TBSP of onions (again I didn't bother to measure)
1/2 C of Unsweetened Original Almond Breeze
1/2 C of no-sodium chicken broth
Some seasonings (I think I did basil, onion powder, all spice, summa this summa that lol)
The rest of the meals were exact duplicates of yesterday:
PB and J on a low carb tortilla
My version of Crack Slaw
Yogurt and usual fixings
Another piece of that yummy cinnamon-raisin bread
So, after watching Food Inc. and discussing it with my mother, I told her that I was thinking about trying a more primal diet. Trying to sound "intelligent", I suggested I was going to indulge in more paleo-friendly food choices. Unfortunately, I pronounced it "Pah-lay-oh" (forgive me for having two years of Spanish!) and she quickly corrected me and said it was pronounced "Pay-leo". Oops. Who am I to encourage a diet that I can't even pronounce the name of? Lol. I'll just stick to recovering and having a better relationship with food. Going paleo right now probably wouldn't be a great idea. I'm already restricting carbs as is. Hmmm. Food for thought, I guess.
