The Juicy Cafe staff is right on the ball – As soon as they saw me coming this morning they started packing up my gluten-free oatmeal, that was a nice start to the day. For my mid-morning snack I brought one of those tasty Yoplait 100 Calorie Chocolate Raspberry Parfait Delights for a snack and was deeply saddened when it was gone. I am not a big yogurt fan but I do like these. For lunch I devoured a cup of left-over gluten-free pasta with low-sodium tomato sauce (don’t forget that ground turkey that hubby added) and asparagus.
I really don’t know what happened this afternoon but by 3:00 p.m. I was ready to go butcher a cow; I refrained. I headed back down to The Juicy Cafe and grabbed an assortment of carrots, celery and cucumbers packaged with some hummus; I ate it like there was no tomorrow. I am uncertain why I was so hungry today but I was genuinely famished. For dinner my husband whipped me up another brown rice bowl with garlic chicken and instead of adding broccoli, he went with asparagus. I can not get enough asparagus! Yes, I drank quite a bit of water as well.
Evening reflection: I think I am going to switch up breakfast tomorrow and go with boiled eggs and maybe add in a better mid-morning snack that will make me feel a bit fuller. All in all I am still feeling that my food choices were good. I am thinking that by this week-end my lungs will be fully recovered from the bronchitis and I can get some gentle exercise going again.
