So yesterday was a little challenging. My Mom made beef tenderloin, scalloped potatoes, green beans almondine in butter and brownie sundaes for dessert. I made a big beautiful salad as my contribution. I filled half my plate with salad and the other half with 4 oz of meat, about 3 tbsp of potatoes and about the same of green beans but I did have the brownie sundae. Brownie, ice cream and whipped topping.
With that even though it wasn't clean I was well within my calories yesterday. I was worried that it would be worse actually. I only ate twice yesterday though and that wasn't the best idea.
I have been cooking for the week today. I have some chicken and beans in the slow cooker now. I have hard cooked eggs in the refrigerator.
I had dinner at 5:30 brown rice pasta with marinara sauce and meatballs and a side of broccoli. I wanted something sweet so I made some mint tea and stevia and that didn't do it. I decided to make myself a healthy sweet snack.
I put a 1/2 cup of irish oatmeal in a cup of almond milk with a little bit of maple syrup and brought to a boil. Then I mixed in baking raisins and unsweetened coconut and let that boil for another minute. It's really good! It would be great with some walnuts but I'm good for fat today so I left them out.
This recipe is a keeper.
