I’m not usually a calorie counter, but today I was kind of curious about how I did so decided to write it up.
For breakfast, I had oatmeal (made with almond milk) and pb.
The almond milk (Trader Joe’s unsweetened Vanilla) – this is for 1 cup and I had 3/4 cups.
For lunch, I went to Subway and got a 6″ veggie delight.
I guess 44g of Carbs is pretty high. But it was *so good*.
And finally, for dinner, I went to Chipotle for a vegetarian salad. Did you know that Chipotle has brown rice now? I was so excited! So it was lettuce, brown rice, black beans, fajita veggies, tomato salsa, and corn salsa. Delicious. I ate half so it was about 7g protein, 34g carbs, and 3g fat. And about a year’s worth of sodium.
So for my main meals today, I had 24g protein, 23g fat, and 82g carbs. The percentages there are 47% carbs, 30% fat and 14% protein. So it’s actually pretty typical for me, too much fat compared to protein.
I’ve gotten some questions about how my detox went. I tell you now, I was not perfect on the no-dairy and no-gluten but I cut way back. I still had cream in my coffee, but I didn’t eat any yogurt or drink any milk. I had bread with my sandwich today and nibbled on crackers here and there, but for the most part replaced bread and wheat with brown rice.
I’ve found that I’m not very good with avoiding things but I am pretty good with making sure that I *do* certain things. So rather than focus on what I can’t or shouldn’t be eating, I think about what I *should* be eating. As such, I’ve been eating huge portions of veggies with most meals (until yesterday when I ran out). Every day I steam up broccoli or spinach to have with lunch. By doing that, it automatically encourages me to eat better. Also, I’ve been trying to eat only lean meats. And I have hardly had any sugar at all, which is a MIRACLE. I still put sugar in my coffee, and I did sneak a few Oreos the other night. But for the most part, I have not had any sweets or treats in a week!!!
In addition to that, I have been taking a multivitamin, a calcium + D3, and probiotics every day. I also drank one water with Airborne every day until it ran out (probably about 10 days worth?). I am feeling so much better. I have two trips coming up, one of which requires air travel, so I need to make sure I keep up with this and keep my body strong. When my air travel trip comes up, I’m going to take Airborne a few days before, during, and a few days after, for an extra immune system boost.
So, any feedback on my meals or my detox? Anyone like me find it much easier to *do* certain things rather than think about *not doing* certain things?
