Week 3: Day 4

Feb. 5, 2015

I’m still on track and feeling good! Woo! There haven’t been any major meltdowns this week, so that is always a plus. Yes, I have been craving some not so healthy food, but I haven’t caved.

Breakfast

The lamest of lame breakfasts. I had another Luna bar. This time a chocolate cooking dough protein one. I think this is one that I would have again, not too sweet for breakfast and not too much chocolate.

Lunch

Day 6 of the soup. I am turning into a lentil.

Dinner

pork stir fry

Highlight meal of the day. I made a pork stir fry with lots of veggies and a garlic sesame sauce. I started by blanching my vegetables (carrots, peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, baby corn, mushrooms and snap peas) for about 5 minutes. Then I cooked the pork, removed it from the pan. Then I added the veggies to the pan, the pork and the garlic sesame sauce (Wegmans brand). I think what made the meal was the sauce, but it wasn’t too overpowering. The veggies still had a nice bite to them and they weren’t too mushy. I followed this video from Wegmans on how to go about making my stir fry. I think next time I may alter which veggies I use, but I will definitely be making it again.

Week 3: Day 2

Feb. 3, 2015

Winters in Ithaca, NY are cold. Too cold for me, which I think has put me in a perpetually grumpy mood. It also made it that much more difficult to get out of bed this morning.

Breakfast

I think this is the lamest breakfast I have had since starting this. I had a Luna bar, a good Luna bar, but a Luna bar. I had the mint chocolate chip protein one, which I would definitely recommend, but probably not for breakfast. I felt like I was eating a candy bar. It did fill me up though.

Lunch

Day 4 of the sausage lentil soup. I am looking forward to the day it is gone.

Dinner

lettuce wrap

I actually cooked something today! I made PF Changs inspired lettuce wraps from this recipe. I feel like this is the general theme with everything I make, but very tasty and very easy. I used baby romaine instead of butter lettuce and they help up perfectly. I love asian food, so this was a nice way to feel like I was eating out without actually doing it. Also, super flavorful, which is a great plus when trying to eat healthy.
