Vegan Trial week, day 2

Tuesday, March 06, 2012

It's 10:30 p.m. and I really want to eat something but I've already gone over on points. It's amazing how quickly you can go over on points even when you're eating vegan. I had a veggie sandwich on a whole grain bun that was 8 points (thanks to the avacado), and I certainly didn't feel like I had eaten 8 points. I could have a big hunk of chicken for 8 points that would surely satisfy me more! I had a big veggie meal at dinner and I wasn't necessarily hungry afterward, but I definitely felt like something was missing. I waited a couple of hours, then made a "shake" with almond milk and frozen bananas to try to feel satisfied. It hit the spot and was delicious, but I was still hungry pretty quickly afterward. I just ate 1/4 cup of pistachios (in shells), and it felt like a tablespoon. I love nuts but I can't eat much of them and stay within my points. I'm just not feeling very satisfied, in spite of going over on points. I feel like I have to eat a lot more food to feel satisfied and I'm never quite satisfied. I don't think this vegan trial is going to last more than a week! I'm interested to see if I'll lose any weight. I hope so!

My food for today:

Breakfast: Kashi Cereal, Almond Milk

Lunch: Quinoa Salad, Rice, Curry sauce, stir-fried veggies

Snack: Veggie Sandwich on Whole Wheat bun with avacado, green pepper, cucumber, lettuce, and pickles; 1 graham cracker

Dinner: Spaghetti Squash topped with Marinara sauce, sauteed mushrooms, spinach, and zuchini (I really wanted some parmesan cheese on this).

Snack: 1 cup almond milk, 1 1/2 frozen bananas, 1 tsp. maple syrup blended together, 1 graham rectangle crushed into it. (This was super yummy!)

Snack again: 1/4 cup pistachios

I better go to bed so I don't eat again! Tomorrow I'm going to try to get some legumes in to see if it will increase satisfaction.

    I think your body wants protein. Did you track this to see how much you're getting? I'd be curious. You need your iron!
Good luck!
