Meal 1 - peanut butter cookie Larabar
Meal 2 - Amy’s spinach feta pocket
Meal 3 - Bowl of Amy’s split-pea soup with a bag of harvest cheddar Sun Chips crumbled on top
Meal 1 - Ginger Snap Larabar
Meal 2 - Slice’s wicked garden calzone: stuffed with broccoli, spinach, garlic, and (of course) cheese, served with marinara sauce
Meal 3 - Stove top popcorn
Meal 4 - Appx. a million sour punch straws. OK, this is obviously where I got off track. My lunch was HUGE.. and also very dense in calories. I was trying to just not eat a dinner to make up for it, but obviously that is unrealistic, unwise, and will not be repeated. I’ve been SO GOOD about halloween candy also.. but I just caved and ended up binging. I don’t think that would’ve happened had I eaten dinner. Oh well, tomorrow!
Meal 1 - Green smoothie as planned. Texture’s weird with the pear and it smells like grass, but overall I really don’t mind this! It’s sweet and you can’t taste the spinach.
Meal 2 - Amy’s broccoli and cheese pocket. I need to try and plan my meals so I don’t eat two sweet-ish meals in a row, because I much MUCH prefer savory. And thinking about eating an apple with almond butter was not at all appetizing after that smoothie this morning. I really just wish all food was savory. It’s definitely one of the biggest reasons I’m not that crazy about fruit.
Meal 3 - Thai beef salad: lettuce, cilantro, tomato, cucumber, shaved onion, sliced beef, and lemon and oil dressing. That pocket did NOT leave me satisfied. Maybe its because I need to eat something else with it (like soup or a salad), or maybe it’s because I had a bite of my coworkers DELICIOUS beef salad she brought from home. So, needless to say, I could not resist ordering a beef salad from the Thai restaurant everyone was ordering lunch from. But good job me for ONLY ordering the salad.. cause boy do i love me some thai food.
Meal 4 - A couple bites of a coworker’s shrimp and chicken pad thai and later.. a couple of my friend’s zapp’s voodoo gumbo potato chips
Meal 5 - glass of vanilla almond milk
Meal 6 - package of Annie’s white cheddar microwavable mac & cheese with 1/2 bag of steamed shelled edamame mixed in.
