This might have been my best food day yet! Every meal was a pleasure. I’m getting all kinds of ideas from these meals and taking notes. When I take the reigns back after three weeks, I’m going to try to cook some new things. I’m also going to try to make lunch my most substantial meal of the day, rather than dinner. This has done wonders for my energy level and my workouts. Europeans know what they’re doing.
Here’s what I ate:
Eating steak and roasted veggies for lunch was such a treat. It was less than 350 calories, but it felt indulgent. The Kung Pao chicken was also indulgent! It was great to pull out my chopsticks and settle in with a bowl full of delicious Chinese food on a Sunday night. It was like I had takeout, but without out any of the greasiness or fat.
The biggest surprise was the Apple Walnut Salad. Unbelievable. So crunchy and fresh, this is my new favorite snack. Mel told me that sales really skyrocketed when they changed the name from Fresh Vegan Salad (or something similar.) Same exact ingredients, totally different perception. It goes to show that people are nuts for nuts.
