So tired today. Like, dying. Experts say that you eat at least 300 more calories when you are tired, which probably explains why I'm having a STARVING day. Nothing I eat is satisfying me at all! All I want is coffee. And a pastry. Or eggs.
Anyway, I pushed past that and did my best. Breakfast was smashed garbanzo beans and garlic, cooked kale and avocado. My portion size was a little large because I only had 1/4 cup of beans leftover after my original portion, so I just decided to eat them.
I glanced at the menu and was excited to find that they actually had a garden salad. I ordered that with balsamic dressing on the side and was pleasantly surprised at what arrived. There was no cheese or anything else bad on it, and it wasn't just iceberg lettuce!
I thought it was somewhat hilarious that everyone ordered fish and chips and then here was the girl ordering decaf coffee and a SALAD for lunch. The server definitely gave me a look like, "Of course YOU are ordering a salad," but I ignored it. If you choose to do anything like The Ultimate Reset, you not only have to be prepared to deal with the strangers that are going to judge you, but also friends and family. I have been extremely lucky that the people around me have been nothing but supportive!
Dinner was baked acorn squash with a tahini sauce. This meal is by far the most interesting one I have prepared. It tasted very good but was extremely rich. I paired it with a side of kale.
I really wish I had some dessert, but that will have to wait for 10 more days!
See you tomorrow!
