Whew- it has been awhile! Classes were crazy last week and I was struggling to keep up. Really struggling.
I cheated…. a lot. Dont worry, I didnt go eat a whole cake or anything. However, I did consume quite a bit of gluten free granola and dark chocolate. Making a huge life change is all about transitioning slowly and trying to make better choices.
The good news: I got really good grades on all of my exams & still losing weight/feeling better!!! (So maybe a little worth it?)
The menu for this week:
Breakfast: skillet of spicy sausage, zucchini, mushrooms, tomatoes, and egg whites with coffee and stevia
Lunch: salad of kale, romaine, broccoli slaw, pumpkin seeds, and fig dressing (organic aisle) and apple
Dinner: paleo oatmeal and some type of protein (chicken, eggs, pulled pork) on the side
Studying Snack: unsweetened green tea
Paleo Oatmeal: SOOOOO GOOD
(Preparing for the week- I separated mine to 5 servings)
2 acorn squash- cooked for 1 hour and 15 minutes at 400 degrees, cut in half and cook cut side down
cinnamon 1 tbsp (I also sprinkled some on the squash during cooking)
2tbsp of almond butter
ground flax seed (1/2c)
Scrape squash and mix all ingredients in a bowl- add nuts and fruit for an amazing crunch and sweetness right before eating. This is amazing hot or cold- try it!!!!
