Now that it's Monday again, I have vowed to get back on track. Although, I have to admit that I wasn't all that excited about this week's menu - orange roughy, canned tuna and salmon all in the same day. For 7 days straight! Don't get me wrong, I do love fish...but this was a little much. So, I decided to exchange the orange roughy for chicken. And, I have never really liked Salmon...that is until the Hubby brought home some Sockeye Salmon a couple of weeks ago. It was delicious, so that's what I bought this week.
In the mornings, I get to eat breakfast tacos! They're made with corn tortillas, ground turkey, egg whites and pico de gallo. Oh, and I get to eat 1/2 of an orange! I don't know why, but eating this makes me feel incredibly full, although I am eating the same amount of calories as the previous two weeks.
|Very filling breakfast!|
My morning snack consists of a Kind Fruit and Nut bar and another orange! The Kind bar tasted like a true cheat treat...it's so yummy!
This is where I made the switch - I exchanged the orange roughy for chicken. Sorry, I just can't do fish 3 times in one day! I also get 3 ounces of sweet potato and 3 ounces of green beans.
|Okay, so this was a little less than 3 oz of chicken...the stuff shrinks when you cook it!|
Here's my 1st fish of the day - solid white tuna mixed with mustard and relish. I also get a side of almonds and an apple. Again, I feel like this is a lot of food!
Here's my next serving of fish...Salmon on a bed of cooked spinach and quinoa (a 1/2 cup, which seems like a lot!), with asparagus on the side. Once again, I am feeling totally full after this!
|I wasn't sure about the cooked spinach...I typically prefer raw, but combined this was awesome!|
Hooray, I can eat blueberries again! I have to admit, I put these in the Munchkin's lunch everyday and I always catch myself eating a few. I have really missed my berries, so this is a great treat - Greek yogurt, blueberries and a packet of Truvia - yum!
|I used to eat this for breakfast everyday|
I have to admit that eating this way (with no processed foods whatsoever) makes me realize that I was eating more processed crap than I thought. I am totally and completely enjoying this! It helps that I am down another 1.5 lbs, too. And, I am not really craving chocolate or cookies...well, maybe margaritas,...but I am craving good things like raspberries and blueberries! Now, when I actually crave veggies like cooked spinach and brussel sprouts, well then we'll officially have a breakthrough! That Pink Girl once made a comment about how it'd be nice if only they made veggies that tasted like candy, lol!
