Ayurvedic Experiment Day Two Results

Monday, February 18, 2013

I did a little better today but still needed two snacks although they are a lot smaller. The only reason I needed the first snack was because I did a workout at 9 a.m. and had breakfast at 6:30 a.m. so I needed something after my workout to tide me over until lunch. Most of the time I do my workout right before dinner so it shouldn't be a problem the rest of the week. AND, I am much closer to my calories for they day than I have been in weeks! Woo hoo! Here are the details:

Smoothie made with Shakeology chocolate vegan mix, PB2 powdered peanut butter, almond milk, 1 cup tropical fruit medley and 1/4 of a small frozen banana. I added 1 tbsp. of chia seeds soaked in water to add more substance and it was really good. Added a Chobani passion fruit green yogurt and I was good to go.

After my workout I made a small smoothie with 1 cup of water, 1 scoop protein powder (1/2 of a serving) and 1 cup tropical fruit medley again.

Smaller salad than normal made with arugula, spinach and red leaf lettuce, grape tomatoes, 1 tbsp. sunflower seeds, a little shredded carrot and some organic French dressing made without sugar and with only healthy oils. Also had some leftover turkey chili with a little reduced fat colby jack cheese and a little Chobani Bite (coffee with dark chocolate pieces) to top it off.

Made roasted broccoli, onion and red peppers with a little garlic and olive oil, salt and pepper. They were DELICIOUS! I also made Quinoa Pilaf with quinoa, ground turkey, celery, carrots, diced tomatoes, diced mild green chiles, chopped onion and a little parmesan cheese. Added 1/2 serving pecan nut thins.

I was still hungry just now after dinner and taking the kids to square dancing lessons so I had the other 1/2 serving pecan nut thins and 1/2 oz. cashews. Now I'm good.

Total calories 1865. WOO HOO! Totally in range for carbs, protein and fat. I ROCK! So far so good. 'Night everyone!

    Wow, sounds like a great meal plan. Love quinoa! I have such a hard time staying on track with food, mostly for lack of time to prepare everything...
