- Cappuccino with skim milk, Fruity Waffle Sundae (Shape Blog )
- Mediterranean Pasta Salad (P. 119)
- Dark Chocolate
- Vegetarian Chili
- No exercise today. I took the day off.
I made the fruity waffle sundae this morning. I used de-thawed frozen mango & half a banana. I toasted the walnuts and added lots of cinnamon. Yum!
I made the Mediterranean Pasta Salad the night before when I made the Penne dish. They had a lot of the same ingredients. Also, it could marinate overnight and be delish!
I made a few changes to the recipe and roasted the onion and also some cherry tomatoes and used those in the salad. I only used 5 instead of 10 of the olives & used a 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. This was SO good and I may have to start making a lot of this and portion it out for meals. I think I did make a mistake and I measured the pasta before I cooked it. In the recipe it says 1/2 cup cooked pasta not DRY pasta. I’ll have to watch that next time. Portion control is so important in this diet.
CHEAT ALERT: I made corn bread muffins for my husband and I had one with my chili. It was SO good. I used honey butter on it. I have not had butter in a month! It was just one.
I again had the chili today (4th day in a row). I told you I love veggie chili. I have enough for one more meal too!
My snack was sliced medium apple, sliced almonds & smoked gouda cheese. I left out the whole grain cracker. I love having this at night & really look forward to it.
I did not exercise today. I have some herniated discs in my back from a car accident. I’ve been lifting light weights and my neck and shoulders are so sore. It really wears me out and makes me exhausted. I opted for a long, hot bath instead.
ONE MORE DAY LEFT!!!
