By this point, 14 days in, it's just easier overall. The cravings are pretty much gone and when one sneaks in, I can just ignore it or think of the reasons why I don't want to eat whatever it is and it goes away. End of story. In the end, it truly can be as easy as that...most of the time.
This was my breakfast today: a slice of the leftover apple-cinnamon toastie loaf (those roasted apples in the loaf are soooo good!) and a handful of blueberries.
This is what inspired my lunch. A big, beautiful heirloom tomato that I got at the market on Saturday.
You guessed it: a mile high tomato and avocado sandwich :) That tomato was perfect and deliciously juicy.
Grocery day. Before Costco and Loblaws we went to Rainbow Foods which is one of my favourite health food stores here in Ottawa. I picked up a few new products to try that I'll post about as I use them. For an afternoon snack I had vegetable juice and a new hummus with roasted artichokes and garlic (tasty) and a few corn tortillas.
Salad for dinner. I started with a bed of romaine and spinach. Then I layered on tomatoes and mushrooms. A layer of quinoa, sauteed baby patty pan squashes and some diced red pepper. More quinoa. Then...
I poured on some three bean salad and vinaigrette. :) Maddie and I loved this. The boys said it was "okay" (except my youngest who wanted nothing to do with it but I forced him to eat some anyway). Then after dinner all the males went and made themselves bagels and tomato sandwiches. Lol
Oh well, at least they ate their veggies first!
Third week begins tomorrow. Stay tuned...
