9 a.m. - I got stuck in traffic because the president was going to the airport and was a hour late for work this morning, so I had breakfast later than usual. My meal wasn't very pretty looking. The bananas looked sort of grey, but it was alright and it was filling. I didn't even eat a mid-morning snack.
|Breakfast - Ricotta cheese crepes with caramelized bananas and chocolate sauce|
12:30 p.m. - Lunch looked good except for when I opened the container, the greens looked pretty sad and wilty. The taste was fine in the beginning and then became more and more fishy as I ate. It was alright though and it was definitely filling.
|Lunch - Tuna burger on a whole wheat bun with cucumber and avocado salsa|
3 p.m. - I wasn't exactly hungry at this point but felt like I should have an afternoon snack. The mousse was very tasty but since the crostini had been refrigerated, it was a bit soggy. Normally, when I eat something like this, I can have six of them easily. I guess it is all about eating until you are no longer hungry.
|Snack 1- Smoked salmon mousse on whole wheat crostini|
4:30 p.m. - I was kind of scared of eating this after having had cauliflower mash with dinner last night. However, in combination with the artichoke, this snack had enough flavor. I saved this snack until the very end of my work day because I was afraid of being hungry until dinner rolled around.
|Snack 2 - Artichoke bottom filled with creamy cauliflower|
7 p.m. - I jostled my dinner when I was taking it out of the container so it didn't look very pretty. I seemed to have ordered another meal with baby food, but I didn't mind the carrot and rutabaga mash at all. I absolutely love beets and could eat them everyday. The pork was so small. I was sad when I saw how small it was, but it had a good flavor and wasn't chewy. Mango salsa makes things yummy too.
|Dinner - Roasted pork loin with pineapple mango chutney with carrot and rutabaga mash and honey glazed beets|
The toughest part about today was that I thought a lot about eating other things. I will admit that the thought of stopping by McDonald's did cross my mind on my way home from work. Temptation and discipline are the enemy of weight loss.
