9 a.m. large mug of green tea with 1/2 a lemon
10:30 a.m. 1 small orange, 1 frozen banana, 1 mango, 1/2 head of dark bib lettuce, 1 tsp glutamine, 1 tsp Spirulina, 1 tbsp chia seeds, ice cubes and a bit of water
Different fruit but it looked exactly like yesterdays! I liked it and it was definitely more filling then yesterdays because of the banana. It was perfect for a 3 km run, 15 minutes on the exercise bike and shoulders.
Since I had a few errands to run after the gym, I chomped on an english cucumber and a bottle of water before I could get home. I also made a trip to the market today and picked up some beets.
3 p.m. 1 small-medium beet peeled, 4 strawberries, all the beet leaves, 1 inch piece of ginger, 3/4 of a lemon (pulp and all), ice and water.
Blend very well and take a sip.
Gag a little and then add 1 package of stevia. Take another sip.
Do your best to drink about 1/3 of this disgusting combination and then
happily sadly pour it all down the sink.
no less beets, more fruit.
did you know: Beets are loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C. The greens have a higher content of iron compared to spinach. They are also an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, sodium and iron.
I don’t care.
That was gross.
7 p.m. Mushroom soup
3 – 4 cups mushrooms (any kind but I used button)
2 hot peppers (optional)
1 cup fresh parsley
3 cloves garlic
1 handful fresh spinach
1 cup stock (any kind)
1 tsp each cumin, coriander, paprika
1/4 cup brewers yeast
The juice of 1 lemon
Place everything into the blender and blend until smooth. Microwave until warm. You could chop up some fresh mushrooms to mix in.
I wasn’t sure how this would turn out but it was really good and really easy to make. You literally throw everything into your blender and you’re done! This made 2 big servings so I’m good for lunch tomorrow.
Today was easy. The trick is to stay busy because I realize more than anything else that boredom leads to snacking. Working out is also a definite craving buster.
