Because I knew I had a holiday party in the evening, I wanted to make sure I wasn't too hungry going in so I could keep my portions controlled. I also didn't know what would get served (I signed up for my meal over a month ago).
Breakfast was a smoothie made with soymilk, frozen cherries, frozen blueberries and frozen strawberries with chocolate whey protein, cocoa, and peanut butter (of course!). I didn't get a picture, but it was really good!
Brunch was the leftover egg/veggie mix from day 3.
Lunch was chicken tenders (boneless skinless chicken breast strips) cooked in tomato sauce served with a spinach carrot salad.
|this was actually quite filling!|
My first serving of grains since Tuesday!
|dill cream cheese spread on toast. that's bacon on the bottom appetizer. And everything is better with bacon!|
|coconut shrimp. I only had one - my husband had the other. but it was delish!|
|salad with creamy balsamic dressing|
|one glass of red wine (that's NOT my martini!)|
|main course - salmon and filet minon, bacon wrapped asparagus, and mashed sweet potato under the filet. The red thing in front is a tomato, but I opted not to eat that. Picky Nicky is still in there somewhere.|
|Dessert - small bites of pumpkin cheese cake and an oatmeal raisin cookie.|
Even though my portions were moderate, I still ate plenty on Saturday night. I entered estimates of portion sizes into TrainingPeaks and the meal was over 1000 calories. Went to bed with a full belly, but not uncomfortable at all! I would say a successful holiday party!
And here's a pic of my husband and me at the party:
