I’m back home after an extended time away! And I’m back on track. I was still quite full this morning from all my binge eating yesterday, so I waited until I actually felt HUNGER to eat anything today. That came at about 2:30pm, so I started the day with some carrots and hummus. Then, I ate a handful of almonds before my 2nd workout of the day.
For my evening meal, I decided I wanted to try roasting vegetables for the first time ever! I picked up one zucchini, one green bell pepper, and a carton of mushrooms for my experiment. I thought that might all be too much for one person (which was WRONG), so I used half of each veggie, added 1TBSP EVOO, some salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and mixed it all in a bowl.
I set the oven to 475 and cooked it all on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes, then I mixed it all/flipped the veggies again, and cooked it for another 10 minutes. The zucchini got a little too mushy, but otherwise it was delish! Next time I’ll add more veggies, and maybe look for an actual recipe of how to roast veggies. I NEVER “wing it” when cooking, but I decided to do so tonight, and it ended up working out just fine! I coupled the veggies with some of my favorite green juice.
Next, I always buy freshly ground almond butter. But I’ve seen that some bloggers invest in jars of different almond or other nut butters, so I wanted to try out some other varieties.
The Justin’s is HEAVEN in a jar, literally. The crunchy sunflower seed butter had an “interesting” taste that I wasn’t expecting at first, but it’s also a winner that I will keep in the mix. So, for a snack after dinner I had a banana, Justin’s, and coconut. It was a great way to end my day of getting back on track food-wise! Here’s all the food i 8 today (with cals below). Yes, I was low on cals today, but when I combine it with the 3000 calories I consumed yesterday, I don’t think my body will feel too deprived, haha!
