OK, day 1 came and went with no major food trauma or cravings. (except wishing I had cornbread to eat with the soup) I did find being prepared is going to be the key to doing this successfully. Who wants to wait until the last minute when they are starving to begin planning the meal. Oh yeah, that is my usual m.o. Something tells me it is not going to work while doing this, It seems all my usual nibbles are now on the "no-go" list. Its pretty easy to cook late while having a sip of wine and some cheese and crackers. Somehow munching on a bell pepper strip and drinking ice water just doesn't cut it. My nemesis, planning ahead, is going to be my new normal.
Day 2. I still hate the thought of putting food in my mouth in the morning, but I put on my big girl drawers and actually cooked a morning meal. ( I did cheat and have a cup of coffee first though)
Breakfast: 1 breakfast pork chop
sauteed asparagus, onions and mushrooms
1/2 cup yellow watermelon sprinkled with chili powder (as good as the pineapple)
black coffee (so glad that is how i normally drink it)
Lunch huge bowl of Veggie Dense Chicken Soup
Dinner leftover grilled hamburger patty
tossed green salad, oil and vinegar dressing
Sorry there are no pictures but nothing was picture worthy, new or even remotely original.
Tomorrow, I do have an idea that might or might not work. Since I did roast a turkey today I am going to try some paleo take on traditional side/sides
