Last night was my first ETL dinner back on plan. I made a sweet potato, I was not that hungry. I steamed a sweet potato and stirred in some OJ, soy milk, dates, date sugar, walnuts, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, it was so good. I could not get over how perfect it tasted, then I followed that with a green smoothie made of, kale, collards, strawberries, cherries, 1 date, goji berries, oat milk, flax seed. I have to keep in mind that I must take this very slow and that is exactly what I am doing.
I am going to make and Italian Stew either tonight or Sunday, I am leaving the Boca sausage out even though it adds great flavor. Tomorrow I am going to make Dr. Fuhrman's Mishmash Salad with orange cashew dressing, this sounds really good, I really hope I like it. I have to be the pickiest eater in the universe.
here is my meal plan today
Breakfast- oats soaked in oat milk with banana and pecans, black tea
lunch- garden veggie soup from Panera with a whole grain roll, ginger tea
dinner- I will either eat Italian stew if I make it tonight or I will get a rice and bean burrito with guacamole, hot sauce, salsa. I am not sure because I already ate the high sodium soup from Panera so I would rather eat something I make with less sodium. We will see how the rest of the day goes. Also I have to stop at Whole Foods and pick up some supplies to make this soup and salad for the weekend. I will gauge my mood by how aggravating the trip to Whole Foods is then I will decide if I will make the soup tonight or not. ETL is so difficult on weekends, lets see how I do.
