Note: The menus come from my experimenting with Atkins for Vegetarians, so my meals reflect their guidelines.
8 am- My menu on Atkins called for a veggie burger with cheese, which I made, but I added a few sprouts since I like having one raw thing at a meal if possible.
Went to the gym for 35 minutes to lift weights and ride the stationary bike.
10 am- Had a few bites of an Atkins bar while going on an errand. Not on the list, but the bar says it is good for any level, so I decided to keep one in my purse for emergencies.
11:30 am – Not feeling great so climbed in bed and fell asleep. Stomach bothering me, so maybe I am eating more (good) fats than I am used to.
2 pm- Feeling better, so made a soup from my veg. stock and added what Atkins recommended as salad, but decided soup was better for my stomach: to the stock I added tofu cubes, daikon radish, thinly sliced chard, grated ginger & scallions and arame seaweed. Also had a couple of olives. Could not eat all the book recommended.
4 pm- Had a very small taste of soaked walnuts to see if they affected my stomach. OK so far.
6 pm – Pan-fried or steamed tempeh cubes flavored with a little soy sauce, Brussels sprouts, salad with Italian dressing I make from olive oil, fresh lemon juice and herbs.
Snack: Walnuts if my stomach is ok.
