Last night’s snack: Last 2 caroballs (See yesterday for recipe)
7:30 a.m. – PP smoothie with just water and cinnamon
(Feeling fat! I think I gained 3 pounds in the last couple of weeks and since we are going away in 2 weeks, I want to take it off, so I will decrease my portions, esp. fruit & bread, and increase my exercise. Also want to keep up my 6 glassesof water per day.)
9:30 a.m. Nori wrap (seaweed used for sushi) with tahini, lettuce and sprouts
11:45 a.m. Black beans from last night (Good source of both protein and good carbs), 1/2 carrot and some sprouts.
2:30-3 p.m. apple followed by a green smoothie with more lettuce and less fruit (raspberries & mango)
5:30 p.m. Salad: radicchio, lettuce, carrot, artichoke hearts, sprouts plus a dish of diced & cooked delicata squash(sub. carrots) cut cauliflowerettes and broccoli tops with grilled tofu & mushrooms seasoned with garlic & Bragg’s aminos. (I simmered these in my soup stock and by the time the dish was done (20 min or so), the broth was almost gone. Feel free to add oil atthe end. Also, a side dish of rice.
Note: Keep in mind that I cook for myself mostly, since my husband is a carnivore who does not love veggies. So when I buy a delicata squash, I may eat it almost every day until it is used up, but you are free to sub. other veggies. Same for greens. I buy 2 kinds of lettuce one week and maybe two other kinds the next.
