Glad you all liked my bad poem this afternoon! I was reading all of your cute comments on my Blackberry today in the waiting room. Thanks for all your support!
Reader Question of the Day:
Sally asks, “Sometime I’d be interested in hearing about your decision to include processed faux-meats in your diet, as they seem to be on the only highly processed food that you eat on a regular basis.”
Most of you have probably read about my diet on this blog and you know that I don’t consume many processed foods. In my mind, the less processed, the better.
So my consumption of Tofurkey (it is a veggie meat that resembles turkey) may seem a bit confusing for someone who doesn’t like to eat processed foods. The reason I consume Tofurkey is because I sometimes find it difficult to get all the protein that I need into my diet. Much like other processed foods, Tofurkey is quick + easy and great for an on-the-go lunch. I can throw a few slices in a sandwich and boost the protein content substantially.
If anyone has any suggestions on what I could try instead of Tofurkey (that is quick, lower calorie, and doesn’t require cooking) I would be interested in hearing! It would probably save me money too if I could find an alternative because Tofurkey ain’t cheap!
Day 5 Crap Free Week
Today went well! I was very busy so it was actually a breeze. Tonight was the first night that I didn’t have an intense sugar craving after dinner! Woot woot!!
I had my cashew cookie larabar on the drive home from my bone scan. When I got home I had a wrap for dinner and spelt cereal for dessert. I’m not feeling so great so I wasn’t crazy hungry or anything. That will be all for today. It feels like it is definitely downhill from here in terms of sugar cravings.
Today’s Crap Free eats:
- Breakfast: green Monster
- Snack: Organic apple, chickpeas (1/2 cup)
- Lunch: Veggie + Tofurkey spelt wrap + carrot & tomatoes
- Snack: Cashew Cookie Larabar
- Dinner: Amy’s Veggie Burger + veggie spelt wrap, 1/2 piece whole wheat bread
- Dessert: Spelt cereal + banana + Almond breeze
There were a couple moments when I ‘wanted‘ a piece of my pumpkin bread, but I wouldn’t say I was actually craving it.
Well guys, I am not feeling so hot after the bone scan. I just feel light headed and still got this headache. I think I am going to turn off the computer for the night and get some rest.
Thanks for everyone’s support today! :D
See you tomorrow morning for a homemade cooking experiment to try to make a favourite item MUCH cheaper! Any guesses??
I am also going to be creating a page just for my honeymoon filled with pictures of each city as well as a description of each place + the cruise ship. Right now I have honeymoon pictures on my Wedding page, but I figure I will just create a different page all together. I have so many more pics to add!
Check back in just under an hour for the Bone Scan video!
Marriage is when a man and woman become as one; the trouble starts when they try to decide which one.
