Last week I planned my food and was feeling good. Until Thursday night. I moved. Of course, I didn't move into an apartment stocked with healthy food. My boyfriend and I went to a pub where I had two beers and a chicken taco salad. The salad was not the best taco salad I've had, there was too much dressing and not enough beans. Next time I'll definitely get the dressing on the side with a side of salsa, will also likely request extra beans. Almost immediately I started feeling gassy. Friday morning my boyfriend had to run an errand and returned with apples, strawberries, fiber one granola bars, and greek yogurt. Unfortunately we had no spoons so I didn't have the yogurt but enjoyed a granola bar, apple, and strawberries with coffee. Running errands we stopped at a Starbucks for a sandwich, definitely disappointing and I felt gassy again. For dinner we went over to my brother's house and picked up some amazing Greek pizza and baklava. My stomach was starting to ache uncomfortably. Yesterday I had some yogurt, strawberries, and a granola bar for breakfast. For a late lunch we were at IKEA where I ate the meatballs, potatoes, vegetables, and a cookie. Dinner was a minimal, naan with avocado and hummus followed by a few (too many) lindt truffles. Oh, and wine... necessary for putting together some IKEA furniture. Today I need to go grocery shopping. I've applied for two jobs while my boyfriend has been at his band practice, I should make a list of what food we need/ I want. Again I had yogurt, strawberries, and a granola bar with brewed chai tea and milk for breakfast, and for lunch I had an apple, some kashi crackers, and another granola bar. I'm so looking forward to eating in a way that makes me feel good again! I think tonight we will have a salad... maybe with pasta? Or perhaps a stir fry... I'll think about this, and browse some recipes from Spark. Have a lovely Sunday, Sparkfriends!
