I tell ya, I sure don’t miss that mid-afternoon slump I had when I was eating donuts and sandwiches. I lived in denial saying it wasn’t what I was eating; it was my lack of sleep. Yeah, apparently that’s not the case because my sleep schedule is the same, but my food is different and I’m not ready for a nap at 2:00 every day after lunch.
I really need to plan better this weekend for the upcoming week. I found myself scrambling a little especially today with what to eat because I didn’t plan ahead well enough.
Breakfast was a banana when I woke up and then I made a breakfast of puffed whole grain brown rice, coconut milk, coconut flakes (unsweetened), slivered almonds, and strawberries. It wasn’t bad! It gave me that hearty feeling I’ve been craving and it filled me for a few hours so I consider it a success.
My camera died mid-morning so I didn’t get a pic of lunch, but it was mixed greens, sliced grilled chicken, a hard-boiled egg, and broccoli. I only ate half of it because it was so damn bland and boring. I didn’t even have my balsamic and olive oil with me to make it better. Lesson learned.
For dinner we picked up a rotisserie chicken and made some veggies and rice medley for the side.
And then dessert was just a little applesauce pouch. Blah.
If you’ve made it this far, I’m impressed. These cell phone pics are the WORST! I need to figure out how to take better cell pictures. Any tips?
