Breakfast: 3 tbls hummus on 2 slices of toasted whole-wheat bread; 1/2 grapefruit
I was really hesitant to try this meal. I mean it's essentially a hummus sandwich with nothing else on it. And no way am I eating grapefruit. Disgusting. I replace the grapefruit with a banana and ate that as I contemplated the awkwardness of a hummus sandwich with nothing else on it. I ended up eating this nothing sandwich, and it was actually pretty good. I'd probably like it better with some tomatoes or lettuce on it, but it wasn't as weird as I thought it would be.
Snack 1: 2 clementines, 6 oz low-fat greek yogurt
Both of the clementines I brought to work were bad. What are the odds that happens? Good thing I have my trusty friend Chobani to keep me company. Today I tried the blueberry fat free Chobani and it was delicious. I don't think i'll ever eat the plain kind again.
Lunch: salmon salad (salmon, red pepper, red onion, romaine, with a dressing made from evoo, balsamic vinegar, and dijon mustard); 1 apple
This meal was originally supposed to be made using the leftovers from the Week 3 Monday dinner. Well shockingly, I have let 14 days pass between Week 3 Monday and Week 3 Tuesday. Whoops! Needless to say, I didn't have any leftover salmon to put in this salad and I definitely wasn't going to make salmon before work started. So I used smoked salmon - a much easier substitute for a last minute salad. My salad was just okay. I'm sure it would have been great with cooked salmon instead of lox. My bad - can't blame the editors for this one.
The apple was red and delicious.
Snack 2: 1 cup chopped broccoli with 2 tbls low sodium salsa; 1/2 cup low far milk
Well. I didn't exactly eat this snack. Instead I ate some broccoli and meatballs during a meeting. And a twix bar. Actually, 4 twix bars. What can I say, sometimes a girl needs her chocolate and today that girl was me. And they vending machine only had the king sized twix bar so I had absolutely no choice but to eat all 400 calories worth of chocolately goodness. While we're on the subject of twix, the kind I got today had a chocolate flavored cookie. What's that all about? Bring me back my original cookie, Twix manufacturers!
Then my friend Aimee came over for dinner. I insisted that she try a Chewy Mocha Brownie Cookie, Kefir, and an Almond Butter Cookie. She liked the almond butter cookie the most. I, of course, had to eat a Chewy Mocha Brownie cookie, too. But wait, that's not the worst of what I ate today.
Dinner: 12 large broiled shrimp; 1 cup cauliflower sauteed; 1 cup wild rice mixed with 1/2 cup steamed yellow corn
Aimee really wanted to order thai food for dinner, but I insisted we stick to our respective healthy meal plans (clean eating for me, weight watchers for her). Making this dinner was super easy. And it yielded a TON of food! Enjoy that both Aimee and I had leftovers that we plan on eating for lunch tomorrow.
And then we ate a lot of slow churned half-fat cookie dough ice cream. I totally gained 10 pounds today. Ugh I must not be this bad tomorrow.I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. Chooo Chooo
