Morning: It’s seems to be all about improvising lately. The morning snack called for a Peach Crumble. I imagine Ani wants us to begin eating food that is similar to the rest of America. I decided to take my peaches (well, nectarines), cut them up, and eat them from a bowl with dates and walnuts. I liked my way better.
Afternoon: I LOVED my lunch today. It was an Italian Salad and tasted very Italian…according to my Midwestern taste buds. The avocado was a bit mushy; I would suggest using an avocado that is more firm for this salad.
Evening: I began my evening with lots of anxiety because we unexpectedly decided to go out tonight. I found this out around 4:00 and immediately wondered how I was going to make dinner work. Dinner tonight was marinated mushrooms served in a collard green wrap. I do not have any collards so I decided to mix the ingredients up in a bowl and just eat it that way. Phew! Problem averted.
Weight: 144.5# (up 1# today, down 5# total) since July 2nd. I am not too concerned. I did not eat anything that wasn’t on the menu today; in fact, I am still not eating that 6th meal. I imagine my body is trying to figure out its new set point for my weight, so I am expecting fluctuations like this periodically.
