Only 2 more days till I can have some meat or fish! I think I'm ready. Not eating meat really isn't that bad. The worst part is drinking this protein shake 3 times a day! If I didn't have to do that I'd be golden, but I need my protein so I drink it. My "work" week is over at school so I have the weekend to myself now. This is what I ate today:
Breakfast: Protein shake (1 scoop OptiCleanse GHI vanilla protein powder mixed with water), 1 cup organic brown rice puffs with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk.
After gym snack: 1 peach
Lunch: Lentil, spinach and sweet potato soup.
Snacks: Seaweed snack, 1 gala apple and 2 celery stalks.
Dinner: Salad with tri-bean blend and veggies with 1 tbsp Bragg's Healthy Vinaigrette. 1 handful of organic mixed nuts and berries.
Late night snacks: 1 brown rice cake w/ 1 tbsp almond butter and a drizzle of honey with a protein shake--1 scoop OptiCleanse GHI vanilla protein powder mixed with water.
Total calories (+/-)--I didn't count all the veggies in the salad or the total amount of lettuce that was in the salad either: 1381 (Carbs 54%, Protein 22%, Fat 24%). I'm OK with these numbers. Wish I could have lower carbs, but I don't see how to do that and still get in adequate protein (I got in 81grams today). 2 more days of this and then my macros can get back on track! WOO HOO!
My energy has been good again today and I had a good cardio workout this morning.
So, more of the same tomorrow!
