I started my day with a cinnamon scone and a cup of coffee. Delicious but probably not the best way to get my body going. For lunch, I had three sardines with Triscuits (*not* the best cracker for enjoying sardines but I just ran out of my gluten-free Trader Joe’s crackers, bummer) for a massive dose of omega-3’s! I was still hungry so I had a bowl of stuffed cabbage soup. Then I realized I had overeaten. Ugh. For an afternoon snack, I had an apple.
^^ FAIL. Sugar and caffeine for breakfast. A huge lunch with tons of protein, but too much at once. Then a teeny tiny snack.
For dinner, I made Teriyaki Chicken from Double Delicious! It’s basically baked chicken with a teriyaki sauce made of soy sauce, brown sugar, green onion, ginger, garlic, and that sneaky sweet potato puree (the recipe called for carrot puree but I didn’t have any). It was super yum. Husband really liked it, so I will definitely be making this again.
Tomorrow I plan to have eggs for breakfast, nuts and raw veggies for snacks, and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for dinner. (I have to tell myself this ahead of time so that it actually happens.)
On a completely non-food-related note, check out the spider that Husband found at the door to our garage.
Do not keep reading unless you are totally cool looking at ginormous hairy spiders…
Tarantulas are scared of this spider…
