Today’s Meal Plan: I got up late so I don’t have an AM snack.
- Breakfast: Van’s Gluten Free Flax Waffles, raw almond butter, a little raw agave syrup, blueberries
- Lunch: Garbanzo Bean and Quinoa Pilaf (Hubby LOVED this, in fact, he finished it without me. I had to remind him I am limited on what I can eat. It IS good. Recipe coming.
- Snack: steamed broccoli and asparagus, mixed nuts (roasted, I didn’t have a choice)
- Dinner: Mongolian Barbeque Vegetarian Bowl with no sauce, brown rice, and a big mixed green salad with olive oil and vinegar
Not as much raw as I would have liked.
Beverages: Two Venti Peppermint Herbal (Caffeine Free) Teas from Starbucks, 3/4 of a gallon of water
We ate out lunch and dinner. I was able to keep things on the cleanse, I just told everyone NO SAUCE. It worked well. I was glad to have an entire day away from home (I ate breakfast at home before I left and took my lunch with me to eat while driving) while we ran errands and enjoyed the day out in the fresh air and sunshine. It was a wonderful, healing day out and I had a new found faith that I can make this diet work long term.
A note about the Garbanzo Bean Quinoa Pilaf, I made it Friday (last) night. My husband came home and ate a bowl of it. He then ate a bowl for lunch himself. I was so surprised he loved it so much. He said it was a 9 on a 1 to 10 scale. WINNER MEAL!
