Re-capping yesterday: Fruit day was an interesting day. I was fairly certain that I was going to starve to death. Yesterday morning I ate my cantaloupe breakfast as suggested. Then dug straight into my berry snack. By 10:15 my stomach still had that “Hellooo? Remember about me?!” feeling. So I dug into my fruit salad lunch. I slowly ate it over the course of an hour and happily noticed sometime thereafter, I wasn’t thinking about shoving anything in my face. Then berries for the drive home, some fruitilous snacking as I prepared for Day 2, then fruit in bed. Voila! Challenge Fruit Day was conquered.
What to do better? Remember I can eat as much as I want so only a cup of cantaloupe for breakfast was a serious faux pas on my part!
Today is Day 2: Vegetable Day
Of the vegetable days I get, this one is “Yes” for potato with encouragement to do it early for energy since fruits are quickly digested and ma body needs it to get through the day. I was never more excited for my baked sweet potato which was dutifully scarfed the second I got to work.
Snacks for the day are raw red bell peppers and carrots. Lunch is a kale and spinach salad with zucchini, corn, carrots, and more red peppers with a drizzle of my homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing. If that doesn’t go well (I’ve never had kale before, it’s on a recommendation)…I made my favorite vegetable medley last night: broccoli, zucchini, spaghetti squash, onion, red peppers all cooked in a little olive oil.
I love vegetable day.
