If you didn’t catch my initial post with the list of the foods you should eat every day you can click here.
YAY! This challenge is over. I mean, ahem… cough cough…
Ok, let’s be real. The challenge wasn’t that bad. And I feel good. And my insides seem pretty happy (after the first 36 hours or so)
However, I kind of felt bored. I got tired of eating the same things every day (with the exception of dinner). I also missed my soup. If you read my blog, you know that I have a small soup problem. I love soup.
So, I think that I will focus on trying to incorporate more of these foods into my daily diet, but I can definitely say that there’s no way that I could maintain this meal plan long term. It would work great for someone who doesn’t need a lot of variety though.
What do you think? Could you follow this?
Also – do you find that it’s sooooo much harder to follow your diet on a weekend? I certainly do.
I’m still finding out that my original meal plan was just waaaay too much food. As you’ll see below, there’s a lot that’s not getting eaten every day.
Below is my original meal plan. I’ve scratched through some things so that I can show you what I didn’t eat on day 7.
Day 7 Meal Plan:
Smoothie with 1c frozen blueberries, 1 T milled flax seeds, half of a banana and 1 carton of greek yogurt.
Eggs: Easy Bake Strata (recipe to come) (note: quiche/strata is about the only way I’ll eat eggs)
Apple (one very small jazz apple)
Carrots (about 10 baby carrots)
Handful of nuts (about ¼ cup)
Sweet potatoes sautéed in olive oil with garlic and onions (recipe to come)
Salmon croquette (recipe to come)
Gluten-Free Cheesy Vegetable Pasta Bake (recipe to come)
Spinach salad w/ tomatoes, bell peppers, and mushrooms (I added a few green and black olives as well as some parmesan Italian dressing)
