In the interest of trying to show some actionable examples, I decided to give it a go with doing a “what I eat in a day” kind of post. I don’t know what kind of regularity I will do these with but I figured when I can, I will. If you want to read all about my weight loss journey please visit my earlier post!
So I proudly present my meals for today, November 13th 2017.
So I don’t like breakfast foods, never have. I dropped my daughter off at preschool and did a four lap walk, about a mile, and found myself actually hungry at 9am, a rarity. Often I don’t consider food until I’m making her lunch.
Today I heated up four slices of ham, microwaved a small potato for three minutes while that cooked and chopped up a bit of red onion. Sauteed off the onion and added in the potato after a quick dice and assaulted it with an array from the spice cabinet: salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder and paprika. Hit that with a splash of water and stir around, within seven minutes I was enjoying my breakfast.
Later in the day after I served my daughter her lunch I found myself ready for a little something around 12:30, a hungry day for me, but I went with it. I topped a banana with natural peanut butter, a drizzle of honey and paired it with some plantain and chocolate chips.
For dinner, I used last nights leftovers (Google Betty Crocker lamb and potato skillet for the recipe, we add extra broth to make it more stew like and subbed mushrooms for the tomatoes) as the base to make a risotto, using the first guide that came up on Google for the technique, skipping the wine but adding peas and Parmesan. This yielded a huge pan of it, enough to feed all three of us plus a nice leftover portion to make into risotto cakes for tomorrow night. It’s worth noting that my four year old daughter RAVED over the risotto and cleaned her plate! Always a good feeling.
And that concludes my meals for the day. If I desire a snack later, I might have a second banana with the peanut butter, or an orange with some tea. Happy eating!
