Day 1 of the challenge

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

My goal for this week was to cut out white carbs but when I got up and made coffee for DH I decided to make a pot of tea for myself instead of having my usual 2 mugs of coffee in the morning.

My breakfast: green smoothie, eggwhites, chia seeds, strawberries and spinach with a sprinkle of ginger

Mid morning snack: grapefruit and mandarin mix. The 2nd lot of grapefruits our guy gave us weren't the wonderful ruby reds we got last time but great all the same.

Lunch was grilled salmon with a big spinach salad topped with citrus mix, pecans, mushrooms and a little feta cheese

Mid afternoon is my "danger zone" when I get the munchies. I battled them with 3 tictac mints over the afternoon (instead of the usual handful!) and 1/4 cup of almonds. I made another pot of tea, Earl Grey this time to ward off the caffeine withdrawal headache (so far so good!)

For dinner I scrambled 2 eggs with 1 oz chorizo sausage - I need some spice!

All in all the day was a success: no white carbs and no coffee!
Today's meals will be pretty much the same :)

    I love chorizo with eggs, now I want some for breakfast. Everything you make looks so fresh and healthy for you. You're doing well.

    It all looks awesome! Getting those white carbs out of your diet is such a good thing. They for sure don't appear in my regular diet. If I eat them I just crave more and more. Hopefully with you cutting them out you won't crave them.
Have a terrific day.

    I have a tree full of ruby reds; too bad they don't travel well online. Congrats on your success!
