So, today is day 2 of Ediets, and I found the battery charger but the batteries weren't charged until lunch, so no breakfast pictures today. Today's food was:
Cereal with blueberries soymilk. One slice of sodium-free whole wheat bread with jam and peanut butter. Watermelon.
"Latin American rice and beans" (recipe courtesy of Ediets). Mixed greens with tomatoes and some of that fancy spray-on dressing (I love Newman's Own). Orange. See above picture. I added red chili flakes, cumin seeds and coriander to liven it up-- good choice.
Vegan boca burger, on a whole wheat english muffin, with VeganRella (which is sort of gross, btw) and dijon mustard. Tomatoes and fresh basil marinated in balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Silk soy yogurt.
And a snack, which was supposed to be some homemade trail mix but instead was a serving of some lingering sodium ridden snack food that we had hiding around.
Alright, so the question is: Did I stick to this meal plan?
Answer: Mostly, yes. However, I can't properly function on 1100 calories, and I definitely had some fresh warm bread at work. But not much! I'm also drinking my second glass of red wine as I write this. But I think it's fine.
So far my only issue is that I can't figure out why they've allotted me only 1100 calories. I run 5k at least 3x week in addition to biking 6 miles 5x a week and lifting weights. I think I need to make an executive decision to add 100-200 more calories per day.
So, that's today....
