What I ate:
Breakfast was an uber-delicious smoothie. I think the vanilla whey protein helps make them taste like milkshakes. I crammed 3 servings of fruit into this one - banana, blueberries and cherries.
Midmorning, some mixed nuts (keep 'em in the desk drawer) and leftover apple/pear/raisin/tofu salad from last night. Two more servings of fruit here.
I swam over lunch and when I got back to my desk I had some celery, almond butter and 2 clementines. One fruit and one veggie serving.
|enough to get me through a 2pm meeting!|
|made the eggs the night before. Filling meal, actually!|
When we got there, I was hungry, but knew I didn't need a lot to eat. They had a three-course asian meal special - soup, appetizer and entree for a reasonable price. So that's what I did, except the entree is going to be lunch for both of us tomorrow! I ordered lettuce wraps, hot and sour soup, and black bean chicken. I'll add one veggie serving for the lettuce.
Total fruits and veggies: 9
|the lettuce wraps and I "splurged" on two pieces of Tim's calamari!|
|hot and sour soup|
|the main course...black bean chicken (without black beans??) .|
My exercise: I swam for 30 minutes easy over my lunch break, about 1250 yards. Stretched for a few minutes in the not-so-hot hot tub.
And that's it! I was able to execute control at a restaurant by ordering reasonable options and only ate until I was full. We'll see if I can do the same tomorrow...it's another holiday party!! I do know I pre-ordered a salmon dish...
