Plus after reviewing the nutritional info for most fast food I'm becoming of the opinion that the only creatures that should eat food tossed out of a window at them are seagulls.
Tasty AND filling and I didn't spend the morning feeling like I had a boat anchor in my stomach.
Lunch was a fruit slushie (like a smoothie but you can eat it with a spoon)
1 cup water
1 cup ice
1 3/4 cup frozen mixed berries
1 cup baby spinach.
Remember how I said yesterday to put the ice on the botttom? I forgot today and it took a lot longer plus beating it down with a spoon to get it to incorporate. The order of ingredients is key. Ice on the bottom and green on the very top.
Houston - we have a problem
Since lunch was light on protein - afternoon snacks were 4 Visi protein chews (16 grams) and handful of almonds. You can also easily add a protein powder to your smoothies.
Dinner on Friday for us is pizza night. It's a tradition after a long week and often, a purchased Home Run Pizza. Made in Chicago, they're available in other parts of the Midwest. They're really tasty for a store bought pizza, made with no HFCS, no preservatives and ingredients you can actually recognize. 1/4 of the larger boxed sausage pizza has just a little over 310 calories with the thin crust, 18 grams of protein and only 1 gram of sugar. I sprinkled some Penzy's frozen pizza seasoning on them and they were great. Adding a green salad with romaine and kale drizzled with balsamic vinegar added veggies without extra calories. Putting my smaller slices on a salad plate, also gave me the impression I was eating more, rather than less.
So for tonight - we'll keep with tradition and with the only glass of wine I'll have in the upcoming week, I will toast with my husband to a healthier future.
