I didn't get to blog last night or this morning, so now I have to do a huge post about my Wednesday and Thursday meals.
Breakfast for Day 3 of the plan was a Berry Green Smoothie. Mine is not green, because I didn't have the spinach that they wanted me to use. This smoothie is nonfat yogurt (I used fage), protein powder, frozen berries, and skim milk.
Snack 1 was listed as 6 stalks celery with 2 tbsp natural almond butter and 1 apple. I decided not to have the celery. So for a morning snack I had the apple and almond butter. This was the first time I ever dipped apple slices in almond butter, and it was so amazing. I can't wait to have this again.
For lunch I had 1.5 cups of the pea soup I made (I still owe you pictures of this being made and the recipe). I didn't get a picture of the soup, but it looked just like the container I had on Monday.
For a snack in the afternoon the plan called for and I had a Nutty Maple-Cinnamon Bar.
Dinner was the best dinner so far on the plan. It was vegetarian lettuce wraps. I used Morningstar crumbles (the plan calls for ground turkey or soy "meat" crumbles) and mixed it with some salsa and some Dijon mustard in a frying pan that I sprayed with Pam. The plan just mentions using the mustard, but I thought salsa would be a nice "clean" addition. On the side I had cauliflower and broccoli. I can't wait to make these again!
I once again added some fruit that wasn't on the plan.
Breakfast was the Honey-Almond Oatmeal I made on Monday with 1/2 cup of berries.
Snack 1 for today called for raw veggies with 2 tbsp hummus and 1 Nutty Maple-Cinnamon Bar. I ate the bar and had the veggies and hummus in the afternoon.
Lunch was 1 multigrain or corn tortilla, 1/4 cup low-sodium pinto beans, 1/4 chopped bell peppers, 1/4 diced onions, 2 tbsp tbsp low sodium salsa. I couldn't find low-sodium pinto beans or low sodium salsa, and I don't like raw onions, but besides that I followed the plan. On the side I had a boiled egg (that was supposed to be part of Snack 2).
Snack 2 called for 1 hard-boiled egg, 12 grapes, and raw veggies. I saved my hummus and veggies from Snack 1 and I ate those with my 12 grapes.
Dinner called for 6 oz fish or extra-firm tofu, large seaweed salad (buy wet seaweed and season), 1/2 cup quinoa. I had tofu scrambled in a pan with a little Dijon mustard, I did not have any seaweed salad, so I ate some mixed veggies instead, and I had 1/2 cup quinoa (which I made in our rice cooker).
I also had some fruit like the other nights (not on plan). No picture.
See you all tomorrow!!
